Show us your interiors

Steering wheels, shifters, handbrake levers, seats...let's see what you have done. I'll start.

HeliGuy - Is that a T96 wheel from DCTMS?

I'm debating on getting my original wrapped by Dallas Custom or Wheels Dream, or getting a new T96. I've got a grey interior, so I'm concerned about the airbag matching the wrap/leather.

It is. Could you get a black airbag or dye yours black, cover it in back leather?

I painted it, also the console under it, the instrument surround and the dash strip. You can't see in the photo but the ignition key surround is also painted.

Man I dig that two tone interior. Thinking of doing the same but keeping my black seats, and rear black carpeting and adding the Sahara carpeting on the doors and floors.

Sweet, it came out really well. What color did you use?

Cool, be sure to post a pic if you do it.

My car is a little unique I think in that most of the Savanna Beige interiors were ordered with the beige carpet. Mine is Graphite Grey. So I sort of have four colors going on - Beige, Black, Silver and Grey. At first I wasn't sure I liked it, but now I do. Just would like to perhaps add some more silver accents, like Heliguy did.

Like it, Blue. The black wheel works well with the grey, I think.

Has anyone tried to leather wrap the door armrests ? Mine are starting to look a little rough and thought the hard plastic never felt that great against my arm.... any ideas ?

There's a write up by Pedro on www.pedrosgarage.com

I've not done it myself, but seems pretty straight forward. Be careful removing and reinstalling the armrests. The spring can be tricky and the old brittle plastic mounts can break.

I wrapped mine, as well as the plastic part around the door pull. Put some cotton batting underneath it first.

Everything is factory aside from the coco mats and the belt covers.
