C/F Interior Trim Wrap Review By: hl0m4n@e90post

*Note: Jason, I PMed you many times with no successful response. I revised my post so it meets forum regulations, if there are more things I need to change please do tell me before closing it. Thank you.

The Service: The service provided here is for your OEM leather boots to be changed to alcantara or whatever material you choose.

Material Options: Material options, colors, and stitching are endless. Some basic ones are C/F (carbon fiber) leather, alcantara, regular black leather, and regular vinyl. Whatever color, stitching, etc you want simply contact Richy for an answer.

Question #1: Is the tri (///M) stitching available?
Answer: Unfortunately, the tri stitching is not available but Richy can do any other stitching combo for example a blue line stitch and a red line stitch for the seams.

Price: Pricing varies on materials used but for my alcantara bundle I paid $120. Return shipping was included so I only had to pay to ship it to Richy which cost me $10 giving me a grand total of $130.

Current Price: Due to high demand, prices have changed; please contact Richy for current pricing.

Time: Once Richy receives the boots, he will need 2 full business days to complete the work and will be shipped out via USPS priority w/ delivery confirmation.

Warranty: The warranty from ******** Motorsport for this service is 3 years on the material against fading, cracking, or peeling and also on Richy’s workmanship from delivery. Mine was delivered 12/5/08 so warranty expires 12/5/11.

Question #2: So if anything happens, how do I put the warranty to action?
Answer: If you have any type of fading, cracking, peeling, etc simply contact Richy. In general, the customer will have to ship back the piece needing warranty, and also cover shipping costs back. It’s that simple.

Maintenance: Maintaining your new boots is very simple. For leather boots, just use the same leather cleaner you use and for alcantara a simple cloth with Woolite will get the job done.

Removing The Boots: Removing the OEM (original equipment manufacturer) boots is very simple as everything is held on by clips. There is a DIY guide here (hope user doesn’t mind) and if you need help removing the boots, simply call Richy and he will gladly guide you through over the phone: The e-brake is the same for both manual and auto, but for autos simply pull straight up without pushing the shift lever button and the knob will pop right out along with the entire black base (park, reverse, etc). Below the base are two wires connected, just remove those and the base along with boot is free to remove. Both the knob and e-brake have a really tight fit so pull hard and they will pop out. Keep the shifter and the e-brake handle and ship only the leather boots including the base.
