Custom Trim

Anyone have pics of their custom trim jobs? I just took off the matte white vinyl I put on last summer so i was looking for some new ideas. I sanded down the wood grain trim around the shifter and have gone with a high gloss black. Pics will be up soon. Just not sure what to do with the door pulls and long trim piece on the doors.



not really happy with it. didn't turn out glossy at all. it will have to do for now till i figure out what i want to do with all the other wood grain.




off topic but i also made a custom badge to replace the factory saab logo.

I bought the "aluminum" shifter surround for mine. It looked great. But was like $125.

That logo looks tacky. Especially as the "Saab" portion isn't the correct font treatment. But to each his own.

yea i agree it does look kind of tacky... i did it at work one day when i didn't really feel like doing actual work. it's finally warm out so i will most likely play around with some designs and change it.

update

wasn't happy with the way that turned out so I decided to wrap with a "Formica" vinyl...

After I did this I was going through all our "special" vinyls and found this metallic black but its got kind of an "overly metallic" look to it so i kind of like it. I will probably throw that on sometime next week. I"ll post pics after.

I'm interested in hearing peoples thoughts and ideas on this topic and would like to see pics of what other people are going with. Also if anyone is looking for a "unique" vinyl I can see if we have it and get it to you cheap.
