Toyota Corolla 1993-2013, Interior Dash Kits by SherwoodŽ. Sherwood gives you total flexibility in customizing your vehicle interior with dash kits for a wide range of applications. Sherwood uses carefully tested proprietary materials, developed in house specifically for automotive interior trim components, and a finely honed manufacturing procedure to produce top quality components that match each other and factory installed panels perfectly. Their kits are characterized by ease of installation and perfection in fitments and finish.
Sherwood trim products are made to the highest standards in the industry. The company is investing heavily in R&D, determined to lead the development of high quality materials and efficient and precise manufacturing technology for automotive trim products. All dash kit materials have been subjected to extensive UV testing, flammability testing, and abrasion and tensile testing before they have been passed for use in production.
Sherwood produces dash trim kits for a wide range of applications. 90 percent of the kits are graphic, 2-dimensional kits, fitting all surfaces that are flat or only bend one way. 3D components are used when needed, to cover areas with complex shapes that bend in more than one plane. The components are made with perfect match in colors, patterns and materials. Sherwood's advanced system for color and pattern match makes sure that the Sherwood dash kits provide a perfect match to original, factory installed dash components and to all Sherwood trim parts, such as steering wheels, grab handles and door panels.
Sherwood also offers some unique features that make their panels stand out from the competition. Rather than making cutouts for symbols printed on the original dash, Sherwood prints these symbols on the custom dash panels before applying the protective polyurethane clear coat. This makes for a true OEM look. For selected kits Sherwood also uses their proprietary and patented S-Tec Insert Technology. This exclusive feature combines any standard material with a chrome-like insert to create a new, exciting look. The same technology also allows Sherwood to make panels featuring custom logos provided by customers, and to make select kits with decorative stripes that imitate very exclusive marquetry, for an enhanced luxury look.
Sherwood Innovations Inc. was incorporated on February 1st, 1997. Two years later, Sherwood Innovations Inc. purchased the assets of TrimMaster Inc., a major supplier of dash components to auto manufacturers, which provided Sherwood with its own manufacturing capacity. The company moved quickly to expand its line of interior components, and made heavy investments in R&D and testing facilities to develop its proprietary materials and specialized production machinery. All through the rapid growth Sherwood Innovations has put emphasis on improved quality, and the company is now quality certified according to ISO9001, QS9000 and TS16949 standards, the highest quality standard in the industry The company operates out of Toronto, Ontario, producing real dashes, graphic dashes and molded dashes, as well as door handles, port holes, mirror covers, and headlight and taillight trims. In 2009, the company was recognized as a Canadian Innovation Leader by the Canadian National Research Council, for its innovations in the field of automotive trim production. Sherwood now operates a production facility with over 50,000 sq ft of floor space and employs over 75 people, a forth of them being technicians and engineers. Sherwood has also partnered with overseas companies to serve the international auto industry with high quality products delivered just in time, aiming to a position as a global tier one supplier of OE trim products to the major auto manufacturers.

The wood trim kit was as described. I like the appearance, and it is of good quality. That said, attaching the large dash piece was not easy! I started at the left and gradually applied to the right, with someone holding the other end. Even though I practiced ahead of time, and started very flush to the left edge, I ended up with the piece being a little long on the right, requiring a little trimming so the edge would lay flat. There are also some small areas where the edges are wavy and won't lay flat. I may try a heat gun on them. All in all, it looks pretty good. The main issue for me was that one packet of the adhesion prep. was not enough. They should provide at least two.
This product looks nice and is truly easy to install. If you are going to mix pieces of a 3D kit and a flat kit -as I did-, take note that even if you specificy the same material the actual texture you get may vary a little bit between the two kits. I recommend taking a look at the 3D kits -they are worth the extra money because of the OEM look they provide-. Also, be careful to check in detail the kit specs to make sure they match your vehicle (even for the same brand and model, some kits apply only for certain equipment configurations like ambient lighting, digital A/C, etc. in the case of the Ford Edge).
Everything went great on install except radio and ac surround piece was extremely difficult to line up. I had to order another because my installer ruined the piece trying to maneuver it into place.
All pieces were easy to install except for the center piece that goes around the storage on the dash. I was told to use the accelerant on this piece because of the curved edges. 2 of the edges rippled and because of the accelerant I could not pull it back off and try and smooth it out.
Following the supplied directions resulted in easy installation and excellent results. The newly self installed trim nicely complimented with the auto manufacturer's trim. Thank You.
