Replacing dash trim?

I would like to give my interior a face lift, change the color schemes, etc. It's difficult to come up with any colors that don't clash with the dash trim. I'm talking about the speckeled looking, green wood grain inserts across the dash. I have the meadow green interior. Has anyone replaced theirs? Are they hard plastic or fiberglass? Is there a way to take them out and maybe spray paint them?!!!

I had a boat that had black plastic trim, and I hated it. I used an adhesive backed wood grain product that was made for dash application and not only did it look much better, it held up to the sun and extreme temperature variations. I had some scraps leftover and my son covered the back of his ever present iPhone, and even that still looks great. This stuff could be stretched slightly to cover odd shaped parts with compound angles. I don't remember where I got it, or the brand but I am sure I would have just googled it to begin with.

There is a previous post on this. There is a company in Texas that restores wood grain dash panels. I have used them for several of my car restorations. They have a large variety of wood grains, carbon fiber look, brushed aluminum etc.
We are out and I don't have name handy. I believe the cost for the seven alpine dash pieces was around 450-500 with shipping

Look up Craft Customs in Rockwell Tx. (214)564-1170. Last guess was about
100 per sq ft. Look at there web site for before and after. It is a hydro dip process

Assuming you can separate pieces, vinyl wrap is frequently used in cars. Can be done by the average owner. Videos available on Youtube. Lots of styles/patterns available ... check eBay.
