RE: Interior wood trim?
there are a couple of ways to do this. One would be to get an aftermarket wood kit for the R107 body from someone like Performance Products that would fit on a later model. Some of the pieces would maybe not fit because the console or dash pieces would be different. You could also go to aftermarket places like Wooddash and see if they have kits that would work.
Third and HARDEST would be to template some pieces yourself. This would require getting very exact measurements for the pieces, making a backing from a very thin plastic (modeling plastic thickness or less), picking a wood, staining and polishing it, putting many layers of polyurathane coating on and then attaching the entire piece with double face tape to the area you wish to cover.
It can be done very well but takes a lot of time and experience to do correctly. I spent three weeks doing it myself to the point that folks thought it was factory.
Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
