Woodgrain - NF - DL *All plastic*

To my suprise, ive noticed that all the wood trim on the doors in both NF fairlanes and DL ltd's are all plastic. Some one on here was saying that they were real wood.

Last time i checked, real wood wasn't injection moulded and pixelated woodgrain effect didnt need to be printed onto it.

plastic plastic plastic. I'm shocked.

knock down a tree, then use your shitty plastic ones as a template. don't forget to spray the laquer on so you don't get brush marks in it. should look nice, and give you a conversation starter at your next barbie.

Supposed to be Tasmanian Blackwood (acacia melanoxylon)
Says so in the owners manual. So it could be wood wood or plastic wood.
Best way to find out is to see if there are any repeating grain patterns, in natural wood the grain never has the same pattern.

I'm sure they are real wood on my EF?

If not, they sure fooled my carpenter/furniture-restorer friend! They sure do dent like real laquered wood anyway!

they've never been real wood

go look at a old triumph 2500 or something and you will see woodgrain.

no cars these days have real woodgrain, it took you how long to realise this? ..

Its more then half obvious when you look at it!

Well I'm not convinced, why would they say Tasmanian Blackwood?
If it was just plastic, they wouldn't say anything. I am going to have a closer look.

Oh woe, FB was right, I saw pixels, so it should be "simulated Tasmanian Blackwood". Sell, sell. Then again we shouldn't be using rare wood to jazz up motor cars.

By the way, they used to use whale oil in very early gearboxes.
