    That's a great picture Rich! I like your white faced gauges too. I never knew how much a clock would be missed - I like that piece around the clock and wish I could have used it.

    Good job on this thread Rich!

    Those are the Indiglo gauges. It's my opinion that white faced gauges & CF dash is very hot. They are on sale now at procarpars.com for like $45. I paid $65.

    That boost gauge of mine HAS to go... that was one of my first mods on my car and was a BAD idea. Luckily it's only one screw in the column piece. Once it's gone, I can fill that hole w/ a black screw.

    Does anyone have the brushed aluminum kit? I'm considering that getting that one but only if I can find real brushed aluminum.

    Thanks Rich, the aluminum kit that iptdashkits has is very nice, and it's real aluminum. I'm just not in to the whole carbon fiber look.

    To each their own... do us a favor though, when you do get an aluminum or titanium kit start a new thread with some pictures. We'd all be interested in seeing that.

    I've got a friend with an Accord that has a similar kit. Looks bad-ass in his car. I liked it.

    I have an aluminum dash kit in my stang. I'm not the biggest fan of the CF look but you guys pull it off in the WRX nicely.

    When/if I get my WRX I'll probably go aluminum or titanium. But I'm starting to really like the CF on the WRx...

    Has anyone seen the woodgrain trim in person? The misses is getting a red WRX and the woodgrain sounds like it would match well. Or since the interior is black should she stay with the carbin fiber?

    Please help me, I suck!

    Alright, guys. I f'd up one piece of the carbon fiber dash that goes on the glove box. Anyone know how to remove and reapply safely without ruining everything?

    Yikes! I'd say to whip out a headgun and get it as hot as you can without melting the dash. Then carefully pry it off. You might not be able to use the 3M adhesive again, but I'm sure you can come up with an alternative.

    Let me know how it goes.

    I'm also interested in going the woodgrain route. Start a new thread and post pics if you do it. Thanks!

    Does anybody know of any others that carry trim kits (either CF or woodgrain) for the WRX?

    There is one more company that I know of. Tora Sport. http://www.torasport.com/. The WRX kit might not be on their website, but give them a call. I read somewhere they are now making kits for our cars.

    Check them out...
