The Definitive RPO YG2 Woodgrain Exterior Trim Thread

Well, I just know I've seen tidbits scattered here and there on the squarebody woodgrain RPO YG2, but can't seem to find a single, definitive, all-things-square-woodgrain thread. So, this will be it I guess (if I've just got poor search skills, then someone please post the link).

Anyway, I kinda like these things, oddity that they are. They scream 70's and I think they look pretty dang nice. National Lampoon's Vacation movies just seem to have given woodgrain sides an undeserved bad name (and are some of my favorite movies...)

So, here it is, post your pics and info and this can be the woodgrain tome if there isn't one already.

Here's a few to get the ball rolling, starting with the definition/description of the RPO to get started:

That lowered beauty is "Elwood" built by member N2TRUX. Build thread link below.

Love the thread, it seems the woodgrain trim look is coming back in style... thanks in part to the Lowsierra company offering full woodgrain trim kits for sale.

And how about Boris Maryanovsky's killer Mopar Hemi powered square!

But you can! ShortHaul posted a relatively new source in another thread, LowSierra (I've seen some of their work on trucks at local shows, it looks great and appears to be very high quality - the woodgrain they offer is 3M):
