Dash Kits that don't look like the plastic crap they truly are..

Gents,
As the title says. I found one company that actually 'paints' right onto the dash, so you send your old one in as a core. Gotta be better than the adhesive stuff...But was just wondering what else is out there.

Thanks,
Steve

Sorry...Let me be more clear...Here's what I've been able to find as the typical adhesive sort of thing:
Ford F250 F350 02 03 04 PREMIUM Dash Trim Kit FULL SET - eBay (item 270381993757 end time Dec-19-10 10:00:20 PST)

Here's an example of a kit which is not the typical 'stick-on' sort of thing:
Ford F250 F350 F450 F550 F650 Dash 1999-2008 BEST PRICE - eBay (item 190307571940 end time Dec-05-10 06:10:30 PST)

So...I was looking for something like the 2nd option...but one that perhaps may look abit more realistic ? Or am I asking for too much ?!

I see now. I know there's a couple trucks at the local yard here with the woodgrain full dash piece, and I've seen the carbon door pull insert things too... I just took a can of semi-gloss Krylon fusion to my replacement dash as the only one I could find was tan - and it came out awesome! I'd post pics, but we've got 14" of fresh snow yesterday and I'm not going to go outside unless I have to.

Thanks - I'd like to see pics when you get them.

The thing is the woodgrain is kinda gimmicky - but it sure looks better than the huge hunk of plastic sitting there...
