    Hi Greg,

    Sorry, I havn't got a clue where you would find the trim, but I imagine when and if you do find it, the price will be HUGE.:eek: Trim parts are so expensive for 107's.

    Breakers, or Main dealer would be the best place to start.

    There are varicose bits here which are universal. Might need to re-mortgage the house though...........

    i'd just keep on track of the breakers on ebay and contact them so they can put you on their lists if anything comes in.

    did SLC ever come with burl wulnut trim? if so, you may find it easier to find breaking SLC's

    I have no idea. I only quoted a website to you. The question is...are you needing to replace existing OE damaged burr walnut pieces or do you mean that you want to enhance the interior with the 'stick-on' extra kit? Around the speedo for instance?

    If you are good with wood , or know a friendly cabinet maker/carpenter you can make your own using thin plywood as a backing to a veneer (loads on fleabay).Depends on your budget really .
