are there any aluminum dash/interior kits around for an 04 gt?

just curious, cause if not, I'm gonna hit up the shop near my house to make me one out of aluminum in a week or so.

you could paint your dash with aluminum color paint I did my old car a while back it came out good but when I clear coated it looked like silver maybe a autobody guy would know of paint to use, as for a shop to make a dash kit for your car i'm sure it will be big $$ and prob won't look good

Aluminum dash board? painting the dash board? I disagree with both. You are not worried about the aluminum heating up in the sun? I have seen aluminum floor board panels sold at local discount auto places. check pep boys!!

yeah, I REALLY don't want a stick on kit. Something about using tape inside my car that's not electrical... doesn't feel right.

I think I'm gonna wind up painting first, then if I really don't like it, I'll try the interior kit from aluminum.

Oh, and yeah, it's just the dash fascia.

when you're 100% done, I'm afraid it's gonna look like the delorian from Back to the Future, with shit that pops up and scares the hell out of everyone who hasn't seen your car before.

j/k

Can't wait to see it when you're done.

ROTFLMAO!!!!!

Thats great...

but if you want to talk about my car, let me know and I'll make an off topic or something.

Getting back on topic.

I really think that you will be pleased with TOUCHES of aluminum or silver in your car. IMHO When you paint everything it looks gawdy.... Like, painting the entire dash bezel, the guage bezel, shifter bezel, all one color, it just looks out of place.. If you just accent the dash you already have with a complementing color, the effect is MUCH nicer.

once again, thats just my opinion.

I know, but I'm almost afraid that if/when I see SED's car, it's gonna be like a jack in the box, and I'm gonna piss myself.

oh, and I'm buying the paint tomorrow.

I'm gonna do the vents, the power controls (just the controls), and some other parts.

any comments on other places I should paint?
