Well it's taken about 3 months to finally get my leather completed. Did the seats in January however, I didn't have time to leave the car for the doors to be done. Well finally the doors are done.

By the way the leather will tighten up as it gets warmer outside. It's a little loose but will look much better after the Texas sun has made it shrink a bit.

Hope you enjoy the photos, by the way the colors are Charcoal and Red with Red contrast stitching. Oh yeah I changed the carpet from the tan to Charcoal too.

Probably going to get a steering wheel like Frank Hoffy's except mine will be charcoal and red with red stitching.

Re: New Leather... Finally (slowrey)

I love a custom interior, and that is sure a fine example. I two-toned practically every car I've owned until my last (SLK) that came that way from the factory, and my R. Personally I am still loving the Nordkap on mine, but that looks factory I must say.

You should have had the Headrests embroidered ... I think the car could use a few more "R"s ... j/k
. Sorry man, the last shot is my fav ... I am constantly doing that to myself
.

She is almost fini ... the remaining blue stitching MUST GO
. Great job!

Looks like a good match to the exterior color.
I have to ask, all the work to your car and you still have the yellow stickers inside your door opening. It's your car, take it off.

Whilst I was at Dell Corporate office I ate lunch and spilled soup on my hand and got 2nd degree burns. Lovely huh?

Great job!! And the red leather seems to match exactly the Passion Red! I http://********************/smile/emlove.gif the way it looks!

May I ask how much that set you back?

Re: New Leather... Finally (slowrey)

Looks great! Did you grow tired of your intial interior or buy it used?

I'm very interested in watching your mod's develop, in particular the front aero piece, I really like that mod and would be interested in helping with that one myself.

Nice work.
