Molded dash/trim kits? anyone know a source?

I want to replace the molded trim that's the fake looking wood trim above the glove box and the arm rests on the doors. My tan interior comes with it as a swirly black pattern and it doesn't please me. I thought there would be some 3rd party offering these trim pieces in a variety of colors/patterns but no, I can't find one.

There's no shortage of flat dash kits you stick on but I want the molded pieces. Currently the best I can do is get the mopar ones for the light frost interior to change it up. I'm not sure I can even do that as I can't find it in the mopar parts catalogue, I even pulled one off to get the part# X70005302BE

You wont find anything like that; you would need to have it made.

Ask milous for the part numbers of the trim if not found.

there are many options for refinishing what you have. It could be painted, covered with (vinyl, leather, etc), carbon fiber,

Many thanks, I was so stuck on replacements I didn't think of refinishing. Think I'll try the vinyl, never worked with it before so it will be a fun new challenge. Now I get to spend days researching the best vinyl and reseller.

Re: Molded dash/trim kits? anyone know a source?

Well that didn't take long. I went with Rvinyl. Many color choices but decided on burlwood, very traditional I know but I like it. I'll probably do the bezels too. Here's hoping I'm a fast learner but if it's anything like monokote on r/c planes I should be alright.

I second that, and I can't wait to see the pictures. Was going to suggest you pull out your trust paint pens, but you have found something far better to try. You might be the early adopter of this Durango group, and how fortunate for the rest of us.

Not sure where I read it but someone did the carbon fiber wrap... turned out pretty good.

Re: Molded dash/trim kits? anyone know a source?

Here's a little teaser. It's much more difficult than I thought. I cried a little bit 10 minutes into the job thinking I was in over my head but I kept at it. The first little piece came out great, the finish is satin which I prefer and actually has a little texture feel to it.

I have done a bit with the 3m dinoc.

I bit of heat can help. I use a blow drier; heat gun is too dangerous.

Looks really good. Doubtless the frustration will be worth it. And I'm sure it gets easier with practice.

Looking forward to the rest of the results.

Re: Molded dash/trim kits? anyone know a source?

Did the hardest piece today, seems I'm good for 1 a day. The big compound curve was a real bitch. I'll quit posting now and save up for a new thread with all the details.
