I’ve made a subwoofer box that fits behind the rear seats. What I want to do is add a wood grain trim panel ( that is a close match to the factory’s wood grain) to the front of my box. I’ve done a little resource and it seem that this color doesn’t even show up in the brochure. All i have found out is that its only been seen in a few 08 Chrysler 300 limited models.

What is this color of wood grain actually called?? Whats the closes kind wood that you think matches this?

Hmm, depending on the cut I guess it could be one of them too. I was leaning mostly towards Morado or… European Eucalyptus. Heck maybe even European Eucalyptus depending on how orange it is in person.

Well, I think the only options they had that were real wood were two different California walnut grains/finishes. The rest was faux wood.

Also, that appears to be the console of a 2005, 2006, 2007 300… not a 2008.

The where 4 options for that year. @ styles for Limited edition had California Walnut and Tortoiseshell-style. The Heritage had Poplar Burl Wood and the str had carbon fiber.

Its on page 17

Also your mistaken, thats an 08. 08 is the year that they changed the design of the armrest / center console. 05-07 have the fold down arm rest / cup holder area.

I’d go poplar – and airbrush the stripes if necessary. Your best bet is faux finishing a panel to match.

Have your say...
