    I have 'walnut' on my MH. When I was a young man, they were actually made of wood and looked great. Now they are wood effect plastic and usually look very tacky.

    Tacky or not, if it's fitted properly it looks better than the original tacky grey plastic(y)(y)

    Just had a look and ebay say 'no longer a registered user' for custom-cars-uk.

    No items for sale and zero feedback.

    Make sure before you apply it that you thoroughly clean the dash with a good decreasing not flash dash or anything as if not it will fall off the first hot day you get ...i fitted one of these to a vw camper a few years back and found half of it stuck face down to the carpet one day :(

    I have to echo what tambo said and make sure the dash is VERY clean witha detergent then wipe over with isopropyl to make sure. When I worked in a motorhome dealers I saw lots of badly applied wood effect dash and only a few that had been fixed properly

    I used to tape a lolly stick so it clicked against the revolving spokes of my bicycle wheel...

    However I was the only one who thought it sounded like a motorbike!
