I used two dash kits to get this "look". I wanted a modern, yet refined look for the interior. I do like carbon fiber, but I have it on my wife's M3.(for the girl-racer look!)

Thanks. I got the silver kit from www.dashkitstore.com
The color code is "SA". The wood kit was from e-bay, and because most of it was useless (poor fit, and molded wrong), I would stay away from them. Fortunately the few piece's I wanted to use from that kit were ok.
The silver kit also had many more parts then I needed, but each was a really good fit. I did have another silver piece above the "magnum" but as soon as I took it out of the garage and the sun hit it I had to remove that piece. It looked good too, but blinding glare and driving don't mix. The silver dash pieces that I have installed and left on don't reflect light into my eyes.

RIGHT ON! Sophistication of wood, and the snappiness of polished aluminum. I would definitely like to see that in person. Nice job.

Meetin up sometime sounds like a plan. Puget Sound Limiteds put on a show at the Nile, in Mountlake Terrace last Sunday. I'll be doing the Cruisin' to Colby show, in Everett on Memorial Day. I likes that Camaro.
It's damn hot today! :cool:

No offense, but if the interior looked like that from the factory I would not have bought the car. Except for the faux wood it reminds me of a mid 70's Trans Am interior. To each his own! I'm glad you like it!

None taken. Honestly I was trying to copy the look from Mercedes E/S class and Lexus vehicles. Light wood and silver trim is on their high end cars. The 70's Trans Am had a silver trim package but the silver was a two tone type with a small checker board pattern. The 70's camaro's dash's were mostly plain black. The Berlanetta(sp?) edition camaro came with a small amount of dark wood trim.

Hey Navyvet does the aluminum match the color and texture around the shifter? I was thinking of getting that same trim but I wanted the metal to match.

Elegant and stylish! Not what I'd go for but I think you did an excellent job getting the look you were targeting.

One of the reasons I bought my magnum was because of it's blend of style and muscle in it's appearance and your choice of wood and aluminum kits definitely brings out more of the style!

diamondrmp, the silver is an exact match but the materials are different. It's a "bubble" type material in the dash kits with silver as the underlying color.
