Here are some pictures of the Joshua WoodTrim Kit. It looks like a perfect and is easy to install. I used a hair dryer to make the pieces soft and maleable. Be careful of not stretching the larger pieces when they are soft. I found that letting them sit and relax after taking off the backing off the glue was a good idea.

Joshua Tree folks were pleasant to deal with. I did need another of the small glue primer sticks they supplied and they were quick to get it to me.

Glove Box Trim

I did not use the piece supplied for the lock button. I think it will draw to much attention to the lock.

Overhead Trim,

Not a great picture - looks much better in person.

Joshua WoodTrim Kit

Your pictures look great! How well does the Joshua trim match the factor trim? Similar grain patterns?

Did the Joshua people give you any idea how the wood will look in a few years? Will it darken any?

Thanks in advance!

FWIW, MB's positioning of that small piece to the right of the glovebox is consistent with the location specified for the exoticwooddash kit.

That's weird...that piece on exoticwooddash's is in the schematic as "right of glovebox"...see piece 17 below.

BTW, the joshua tree looks great -- I really like the thin trim pieces around the overhead consoles -- exotic's were a bit too clunky-looking for my taste so I left them out, and lacked the thin "trim ring".

Glove Box Trim

Rail,
What did you use for the right side of the glove box?

Maynard,
No clue as to how long they will last .. but I can't tell the difference between the factory pwood and Joshua Tree pwood so hopefully they'll age together.


KOT!

Looks great. A couple questions. Is the kit real wood? What was the worry about stretching the larger pieces? It looks like the kit has pieces that are the same as the portions of the original dash that have plastic wood trim. Do the aftermarket pieces just fit over the plastic wood pieces on the dash?

1. It's pwood (plastic wood), not real wood, just like the original stuff.
2. Once warmed up, it's easy to stretch the pieces which make it harder to fit perfectly.
3. There are no overlapping pieces with the origianl trim pieces - all are unique.

I hate to tell you this but you put that piece in the wrong place. It definitely goes to the right, close to the door.

I have the exocticwooddash.com kit myself and installed it myself. It took me 2 1/2 hours with a hairdryer.

I get so many compliments and everyone can not tell which parts came from the factory or the kit. AWESOME !

Anyway. The kit rocks.

Enjoy !

I'm going to try to get some pictures taken on my brother's Sony Cybershot sometime soon.

I love that top piece that goes around the lights above the driver.

The exocticwooddash kit does not have that piece.

NICE !

Aluminum Available?

Hey folks...it looks like Joshua tree has the brushed aluminum dash kit available. Can't get the link directly. Follow this, then hit Acura, then MDX.

A4L -- is your next post gonna be a question about how to remove the wood? :)

Maybe they'll let you buy just that piece. I tried getting just the rear cup piece from exoticwoodtrim but they said I had to buy the whole kit - they won't sell it separately.

Oh well!
