Thanks for the tip Dave ..Actually I was planning to leave it under the sun for sometime.The wood trim looks like shelf contact paper that is a self adhesive (very tacky and hard to remove) backed vinyl plastic sheet that you cut to size and stick in place after removing the backing paper.
I like the alligator leather seat covers.
You are right Paul .. I've seen couple of fine looking Impalas .. with this mistake.All cars without gauges came with aluminum trim, he added gauges and also cut out ducts in the trim. You'll see many pictures of gauges with aluminum trim and plenty where they cut off the top of the gauges because most are not aware that with gauges you must have the lower dash padding. Most people remove the gauges from cars and leave the lower dash padding not knowing.
