I ordered everything to do this to my tan interior... I hate tan, but I think I cannot change the seats color only, so I have to stick in repainting it tan

I love the red and black interior... Red and tan is not working.

Also I just moved back to sarasota, can you recommend any indy shops in the area for maintenance work?

Thanks
I like Swanson's on 301 and Tallavast. I used to live up on University Parkway, but now I live in Palmer Ranch; I haven't looked into a shop yet down in south Sarasota.

two more pics in 'ok' lighting.

Yes the door panels will be done soon. Cure time is approx 48hrs according to the DIY I read, but in reality it's really more of a 1-2weeks. You may use the seats, just use parchment paper to avoid contacting the surface for extended periods of time.

almost done, another couple days of cure time before taking off the parchment paper and then wet sanding to remove some of the shine so far so good

you could do tan interior with reddish-brown seats and door inserts ala 6series grand coupe's individual interior option.
