Ok, so I may be looking at an expensive interior upgrade to get the feeling of a real car in there. Post up your pics of your upgraded interiors so I can get some ideas.

I'm not talking about painted and dyed parts. No ghetto-upgrades need apply (myself included ;)). I'm talking the "I spent a sh!tload at the upholsterer's and it was totally efiin' worth it" type of upgrade. And if you don't mind, give an idea of what you spent. I'm expecting in the thousands.

I know Lenny falls into that category. And BlsdEsq(?) who had that gorgeous red interior done. I've seen a few others also. Let's get the creams of the crop all in one thread, if we could... :D

Im on a budget build lol. One YEAR i will be able to post up pics of it finished. Been riding around without a dash for months now lol.... on the bright side it is getting wrapped in leather with burgandy stitching right now along with center console lid.


I can post what I have so far...

All black interior pieces painted dcm and cleared. $800 (all bezels, dash, center console, defrost vents etc.)






Katzkin leathers (Stock gray with gray suede and burgandy stitching) $1200 installed







Painted billet specialities wheel (included in price with other paint work)



Dash should be done in the next week or two. Ticket on it is $400. Gonna have arm rests upper and lower door panels done in same leather as soon as funds allow.


When im done i hope to have every panel wrapped in leather with burgandy stitching. Headliner and visors will be gray suede. Still up in the air if I want abc pillers suede or painted dcm.

If you have Windows, got to microsoft.com, search for "wintoys" or "picture resizer" and download the program. Then you can resize your pics with a right click. :)

I use this: http://www.irfanview.com/

I use this to resize. I keep the large pics for myself and make another folder with all the 'adjusted' pics in there for ease of finding for posts, wallpapers, avitars, etc... I have it so I'm pretty sure its still free.

Thanks man... I will admit I wasnt too happy to find out that katzkin didnt do all the stitching in burgandy. I wanted it all burgandy even where the suded is sewn in. But was told no "kit" will come like that only the outer stitching will be colored. I would have to get a set custom made instead of an out of the box kit to make that happen.

Dude that lives a few blocks from me runs a shop outta his home. Cost of my dash and center console lid is right at $400. Cost so much because that leather is expensive but it is the exact same leather that katzkin used on the seats. The grain, color, and feel is dead on with what is on my seats.
