The wooden trims not withstanding, the finish on the dash looks amazing. Great work KP.

I'm also not a fan of wooden trim. But the work looks great and finish is awesome!

I'd have tried for a carbon-fiber look (instead of wooden-finish) and maybe Black instead of beige (I hate beige too).

How much did the work run to, any idea?

All is good, but one question. Why just the dashboard? I find it silly to have just the front dash in beige while the rest of the plastics on the doors, pillars and rear to be in grey.. or did u get those done too?

the beige shade looks good. but instead of the wood contrast, should have gone for an another colour instead of the wood shade.

Some of the pics show the rest of the panels other than dashboard also in beige.

I like the beige colour, but I have the same question as Arush - why not all the plastics, including the rear door panels etc? If this has already been done then ignore this question!

Never been a fan of wooden trim, but I guess that depends on what you like.

Overall, very nice... livens up the interiors considerably!

I also had the same feeling that the steering would be slippery but it turned out to be much better. Its not that slippery, quite manageable.

I liked the santro with different interiors! Thanks for sharing the idea and work.
How many days it took to complete the job?
Steering wheel might look better with a leather cover than now. A/c knob and ash tray looked left out while painting.
