Hello everyone, I am new here and just figured give this site a shot. I can’t for the life of me find any place (websites etc) that have just basic black trims (matte, gloss, neither matter) and i’m just curious if maybe anyone knows of any places?
Real briefly, I’m aware that you can find replacement “wood” trims no problem, ebay, hell anywhere Really. N even when you google it, results will talk about “removing” the wood trim, only, every convo pretty much is about “removing it” to either completely replace it with “new” wood work, or to resurface it etc.
Either way. I don’t want either. It’s a 92 XJS, i’m trying to modernize it more than anything.
Also figured i could save money getting basic black stuff (plastic most likely) rather than buying/rebuying wood stuff.
Atm my goal is to make my XJS a black on black. My steering wheel is black as well as my shifter, so rather than spend a ton of money getting the wood finish for those to “match” the wood trim. I just figured. Screw it, remove all the wood trim. I just dont want to leave it “bare” but as i said, can’t for the life of me find any places that have basic black trims etc.
My next option was perhaps 3d print?
I know how to remove all the trim etc (mechanic) i don’t really need any info on “how to do” stuff just more so, anyone have any info on “where to get” , that’s the boat i am currently in, any info/help would be much appreciated.
Atm exterior is good to go (black) i just re did the carpets/flooring (I also have a convertible, so it was a lot less interior upholstery) and modernized them with a more cusion-esque leather, that you would see in a current day I-Pace and again, black, as i mentioned as well, my steering wheel and “T” shifter are black leather. N atm my center console’s (where the ashtrays are etc) wood work is damaged.
So idk, call me crazy, call me a “not true jag” lover lol but, personally, why repair the wood? Pay more etc. I’d rather remove, n get a simple (sure cheap, doesn’t bother me lol) black trim, that way everything just matches. Simple, cheap, modern, still keeps it’s “slick” elegance.
Just black on black. Also it is a 92 (when ford owned jag, aka for mondeo/xtypes lol I’m fine with it having “cheap” basic plastic trims, long as they black, I’ll be happy).
So any help/info, would be much appreciated. As I said, my next outlet was going to be checking out 3d printing (as i see tons of crazy thngs like BB guns being made etc) but i figured why not ask this community. U all have great knowledge and i’m welcome to any.
Thx again for taking the time to read this and if you can contribute to the question. Thx in advance, it’s much appreciated.
This is pretty much my last step, then it will be black on black. As I said, just didn’t want to remove the wood and leave it “bare”.
