Photo 2/10 | Sherwood Innovations Dash Kit | 1. Out of the box, the Sherwood Innovations dash kit was laid out so we could quickly check out all of its components. The kit (2D-4117-Cl) included a large piece for the left side of the dash, center stack with several fitments for radio options, A/C vent panel, power window/door lock switch covers (which we couldn't use on our manual window/lock truck), and glovebox accent pieces. All in all, the kit included 29 total pieces.

Once we coated that section of dash with the included adhesion promoter, we used a heat gun to warm the new dash cover panel. This helps make the panel more pliable and easier to apply.

After sizing it up, we removed the 3M backing tape and started in the center of the panel, and then worked our way out making sure to pay close attention to the edges for a perfect fitment. Several seconds of pressure against the panel locked it onto the plastic dash.

Each panel fit precisely as it should, even around our aftermarket Pioneer stereo. The A/C panel also fit perfectly around our rotary knobs.
Photo 6/10 | Installed Dash Pieces | 5. As you can see, very little of the factory black dash can be seen underneath the brushed aluminum dash kit. Not only did it match the Raceline wheels and Grant steering wheel accents, the brushed aluminum provided some much-needed color against the sea of black and grey.
