Does anyone know if I can add the deluxe trim that goes around the glove box to a car that had standard interior? I already have a deluxe glove box door with the trim and wanted to make sure I can add the deluxe trim to a standard dash. Thanks!!!

Sure, you will either need to drill holes to mount it or

you can cut off the plastic studs and glue it on the dash

GOOD MAGNETS WORK WELL.

Go to goodwill and pickup a few old PC Harddrives they have great magnets in them.

The reason I ask was because I have not found a picture of the back side of the dash trim piece and did not know if the dash structure had recessed holes for the trim piece. I was not aware that it basically involved drilling holes in the structure.

If there's no camera case-textured plastic piece on your dashboard, then yeah - you'll need to drill holes.

If there's a plastic piece that just doesn't have the chrome trim strip around the outline (Deluxe Trim), then you can swap the pieces easy enough - although, it will be a PITA to get to the fasteners on the backside of the dashboard itself.

I've not seen too many interiors that didn't have some kind of plastic trim, but I know they're out there.

The magnet idea sounds interesting. Good idea! ::thumb::
