I'm looking to make a docking station for an iPod video that will replace the current clock pod on an 02 WRX. Right now it's just going to be wired into an FM transmitter, but it will go into a dvd/nav system once my wife decides which one she likes.

I have an old clock pod I can cut up for this one, but I'm looking for a good way to maintain the factory look. Any recommendation for materials to form into the old pod and still maintain the grainy look?

I know this isn't very clear, I'll work on a sketchup version.
