    factory style wood trim

    i recently found a company on ebay who produces oem-style wood trim dashes. well to be precise, they use the original part bought from the manufacturer and then they somehow paint the wood trim onto it. it looks awesom.
    http://www.autodynamicswest.com

    now here is my problem: i would immedately buy one of their tahoe dash bezels, but the 2001 dash holds only a 1.5din radio. but i want to put a 7" lilliput in there, so there is no way around chopping parts out of the dash and then fiber it togegher again.
    now they also offer to put wood trim on any custom made dashes as well, but i live in switzerland, and sending my modified dash to the states and back probably costs more than the dash itself.

    does anyone out there know how i could do this myself? or does anyone know a company somwhere closer to me (germany, italy, france, austria or switzerland) to do that?

    cheers

    make your dash how you want then send it to some pleace like the one you linked to or:

    http://www.phoenix-image.com

    get it hydrographic dipped and it will be pretty close to looking like what I'm guessing you are looking for.....

    btw: I know that Phoenix Image is located here in the states, but knowing what they do and what it's called should point you in the right direction as to what to look for over there....make sense?
