    Not a fan of faux woodgrain.
    The armrests and shift knob have the that putrid faux stuff.
    I'm down for replacing the pieces or maybe wrapping in carbon fiber vinyl.
    Anyone do something like this or know where to find replacement parts?
    Plasti dip isn't an option.

    Thanks

    Excuse my ignorance, I don't know what "plastidipped" means, but guessing it is a plastic coating you put the part in creating a black coating over it? Either way, I used to work with a guy that had his own shop and could wrap just about anything having immense patterns to choose from such as camo, carbon fiber, etc. Seems this would be perfect here as I know many manufactures do the same thing... I'm not talking about the vinyl, but a different solution that you put a very thin material in a fluid based solution and dip the part in, "wrapping" it. He showed me some examples and it was pretty amazing.

    Plasti Dip is a flexible, rubber coating that was originally used for dipping tool handles. Recently, it has been found to be an easy alternative to painting vehicles.
