Carbon Fiber on the interior?

Does anyone know of any carbon fiber accessories for the interior, I'm thinking more for the dash than anything else, I think the bezzle around the cd player would be a good place for a little carbon fiber accent.

The newer Mazda B-series trucks have a carbon fiber appearing radio bezel. It looks good on a dark dashboard. Check a junkyard or order the part..

Thank you, and now another question, where can I find the factory fog lights for the lower front valance and all the hookups to make it as stock as possible, I dont want extra switches I want it to work like it is factory.

Only problem I noticed with that kit.. I don't see any options for the 4wd toggle in the uppe rleft hand corner of the radio bezel area. is there some type of punch-out you can do with it?

I looked in your profile and it says you have a '03 Edge. Edges come stock with foglights and all the associated wiring, including the radio bezel with the switch. Did someone rip off your stock fogs & wiring??

I've personally seen a mazda truck with the Ranger STX radio bezel......that was a 2wd w/ fogs and it had the switch. I'm sure you can stick it on, then take a xacto knife to it to make it pretty.

I would not cut it if you need the hole for the switch, doubt it would look good, just find the right bezel or move the switch..

well this one doesn't, and it is for sure an edge even the title says so. But it sure doesn't have fog lights, the valance isn't even cut for them, I haven't investigated enough as far as wiring is going.

That kit says it fits a 1998 - 2004 Ranger. The interior looks exactly the same as my 95. Would this carbon fiber kit not work on mine??

The one in the Mazda was in the Special Edition Troy Lee designs B3000 and B4000. I had the Roush Kit from Hillbanks through their Ebay auction and I ended up selling it due to me having 4x4 and Foglight switches. I couldnt bring myself to hack it up.
