Woodgrain Trim Refurbishment

I figured there had to be another way to get a better woodgrain trim than ordering a set for $900. I did order a set, and wasn't happy with it because it didn't have the matching profile, even though the width is the same. So I came up with my own solution. I'll be doing this to the full trim on one of my GW's in the future, but here's a piece of it up against new woodgrain panels. What do you think?

That looks good! How did you do it - I'm guessing you wrapped some originals?

Looks nice. I'm curious also regarding the process you did.

i have not been able to get a response from medina jim either

but, i tried wrapping some original trim,....

i took a photo of some O.E.M. trim

then had it printed onto 3m vinyl,....

looked great indoors,...i was stoked !!!!

but then, when i pulled into natural sunlight

the same decal that looked perfect inside

looked as "green as a gord" outside,......

***someone,... somewhere prob knows how to eliminate the green hues

in the digital photograph file to remedy this problem.
( maybe in photoshop )

maybe medinajim will respond to us and let us in on what he has done.

Sorry for the late response. Had a lot going on personally. I'm still working on getting the wood grain to follow the curve of the trim around the wheels; and keep the cost down to where we can all afford it. I'll keep you all updated.

Dave - I don't have any greenish tint to mine, but it's not something you'd just want to used on one section. It looks great, but you can tell the difference between this and the original, so you'd want to do all the trim.
