The Ultimate Interior Customization

Hey guys,

The first 3 pictures show how my car currently is.

The goal is to paint the same parts and have the same look as the 3 other pictures in order to have a 2 tone interior - Black/Tan. Seems easy by just removing the parts and painting black..perhaps.

What do you guys think?

Has anyone tried this? If Yes PLEASE post pictures! Thanks

That's Great News.. Can you post some pictures please?

It would be great if anyone that had done that posted some pictures.

I'll try to find some estimate for all that next week.

this might be a little hard to do. It will look great though. Also, keep in mind that the second interior that you showed us is not tan, but Oyster. Its like white leather, and not as dark as tan, so it might not have the same look to it.

Indeed...i did think about that. but it seems that bright colors mixed with black always works..That's why i thought it could still look nice although the Oyster combination with black is just beautiful and mature combination.

I went with the high gloss black interior. Essentially I did the same thing you're going for but with coral red and black, with a couple of alcantara shift boots.

There's always a special feeling for the original but when something drops in the carpet or the leather is a little dirty it is very noticeable in some areas. So i think the parts that get painted black like on the second set of pics would lower that chance of noticing those scratches or stains. plus it looks really good...different and nice.

Looks awesome.

Are you painting the interior? How would one change the leather color?

My car has black leather interior I would love to change it to a lighter color.

I'm really interested to hear what they say because I never would have thought this was possible. Without buying all new parts.
