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

What exactly are you looking for? a new dash piece? I'm kind of confused

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...
