there's brushed aluminum ones out there. There's a junk yard around me that used to have one with that trim. I'd do that over painting, painting makes it so cheap looking....like the 17 year old ricers do their vents and such.

You get the idea....

You can probably sell off the wood trim to someone that appreciates it and buy the trim you like with the proceeds.

Agreed. Just buy a trim kit. There is a few really nice ones out there.

if you do plan on removing your trim pieces this would be helpful... http://wjjeeps.com/interiortrim.htm#DOOR

"The long right strip above the glovebox is attached from the back of the instrument panel with four 10mm bolts and is much more difficult to remove. Due to safety considerations in the event of an accident, it is securely bolted on from the back. This trim piece is laminated to a piece of thick metal and weighs more than a half pound. To remove it requires the disassembly and removal of the entire instrument panel, including the cluster, radio, A/C unit, glovebox, ashtray and so on. Although not as difficult as it sounds, it could take 2-3 hours to disassemble the dash and put it all back together. "

I used a satin nickel color on mine. It's looks a lot like the factory brushed without looking fake and "ricer". Just pick a color that looks clean and simple. Nothing gaudy...

The trim pieces, wood or brushed or whatever, are all thin metal wrapped over a plastic frame. The plastic frame is used for the mounting tabs.

The driver side (small) piece just uses trim clips to hold it in. Gently pop it out with a nylon pry tool.
The passenger (large) piece uses nuts to hold it in place. You have to remove the whole IP top panel to properly take it off. Don't try and cheat by pulling the aitbag cover back to reach the nuts becasue you will bend the IP top panel and it will never sit right again.

Before you paint make sure you properly prep it. You won't need to do heavy sanding, but buy some 3M scratch pads and sand it down completely with those being sure to scuff every little part you can.
Shoot them with a can of primer, let it completely dry, then lightly scuff them again with the 3M scuff pad.
Wipe them down. If you don't have a tack cloth, you can use a clean rag with a tiny bit of thinner.
After the prepping, then paint. Do a few light coats at a time witing about 30 minutes between coats. This will keep it from running on you.

I don't have pictures of mine, but it turned out very nice. Take your time and good luck

Still not sure about color, i consider Carbon film layer to put outside the trim. Easier, and maybe alot cooler.

Check out www.Carbonfiberfilm.com!

What u guys out There Think?

The carbon fiber looks great! How difficult was it to wrap the edges smooth?

Looks awesome. Think I might do this also. Did you have to heat it at all to wrap the edges?.
