Default Custom Dipping Wood Panels

I am looking for someone in Bangalore who can custom dip some of the panels in my Verna to give a wood finish.

I am looking at door opening handles (chrome finish), handle surrounds (wood finish), gauge bezel (wood finish), AC vent bezels (wood finish)
I heard that Galio in Delhi stocks moulded wood panels for verna?

Delhi guys - Bangalore guys pls heeeellp.

No one knows about getting these in this 'knowledgeable' world?

Can Chameleon folks in Bangalore do it?

You should be very lucky to get good finishing from a cutom made wood panel kit.

@jacs: You should check out the finish by guys like bitrim.com. It rivals the best in business.

They do awesome job, But most of the displayed ones are designed for left-hand drives and sourcing to india would be a nightmare I believe.

@jacs: I know it'll take a lot of effort to get from US . That's why I am looking for getting it done in India.

@foster: Will wait for the details man!

Manik: Get me the pics man... also the contact of this fellow. I'll owe you one for this

You can check out Autographix dashboard wooden fakes, contains 3 types of woods. The catalogue shows for different models, you can select them. I have put them for my SX4 (check out my gallery). These are available from sticker shops or sun film dealers.

Default wooden stickerings for dash board

Hi,
There were some wooden stickerings available in the markets.Its only desined to the cars.
For old model cars and dashboards its not possible to get the stickerings.

Instead of that,either its possible to get a sheet ( 40cm square type),from where we can cut as per our dashboards and fit it.

Where is this sheet available.anybosy help me to knw about the dealers or suppliers of this.I have enquired in JC road bangalore and chennai accessories shop.

Wood grain finish is obtained by a process called 'Aqua graining' and there are quite a few chaps doing it around. Check locally if you can find someone, you would need to remove the dash panels and give it for aqua graining. A wide variety of grain finishes are available.

Dash board trim is available for number of new cars from autographics at very reasonable price of 750-1200 Rs.

For which car you want? Ambessador?
