Crunk04gtp, sent you a private message. He said he can definitely do the bird's eye maple with blue stain. I actually thought about the blue stain a while back, but I didn't think it looked right with black leather interior.

I'm unable to post prices as the material and work involved varies. Only price I can quote is for a custom shifter knob which is $250 flat, in any design, wood, and strain. Everything else varies based on material and work involved. I guess if you already have stuff you just want refinished then it would be less.

Talking Wood Trim update with more photos

Ok guys here is the set that I have done so far. *NOTE* The pieces are NOT complete. He still has to put the high gloss shine coat over everything. But as you can see, the pieces are cut and stained. He even did the glove box with a wooden latch, which I was not expecting, fully functional! Other than the center part where the a/c buttons go, the pieces are all solid wood. The double den part where the radio goes is not done yet, but that will be cut and customized so that I can fit my a/v switcher at the top and my radio at the bottom. I am still going to do my steering wheel and the 4 door handles and have a custom wooden center console by the parking brake done.

Is that for your 190E? Looks good. C'mon, you need to give us ballpark figures for that work you did for the shifter surround, shifter knob, ashtray & ashtray surround. You will catch more fish w/ bait.
