Interior re-fresh

Started my interior re-fresh today. Looking for "key things to do" while I'm in here.....

On the list so far:
* replace seats with 987 Sport Plus seats (after I get heating elements installed)
* carbon wrap the center console and the "horseshoe" around the stereo
* replace stereo + useless cup holders with a nice 2-din touchscreen stereo
* wrap the arm wrest / storage covers on the doors with good black leather (plastic sucks)

Any suggestions for other touch ups?

While I'm in there, I'm going to go ahead and replace the crank pulley with an underdrive (16%), replace the belt, and the water pump.

Happy motoring!

I am in the midst of a smaller scale version of your project. I'm keen on how to leather wrap the door pocket lids. Need a source for the right leather, the right glue and of course the right technique. Subscribed.

I took out the black plastic trims that go across the center of the dash and painted them silver.
