Grass-roots install of suede accented interior

I intend on doing a home-made interior upgrade using adhesive suede applied to the interior much like we do with vinyl on the outside.

I have this source in mind but am not solid on it:Genuine Korean adhesive suede

I want to emulate but not copy the dash patten on the 2012/zl1 model-year IN ADDITION to arm rests in back seat, center column that tranny runs under, the door +





to:




I will have more freedom to design as I please so I might not do the split on the dash and cover it entirely, but I will run into what I am running away from: the vastness of the plain passenger side dash.

so might go with something like this:

(i.e. the 2-tone)

What do you guys think? Pointers? Tips?

Ebay Suede? Be careful.. You get what you pay for.

You might want to look at Alcantara material. It's much more expensive but that's the real stuff you see in high end sports cars.

haha - i know, i know....I read many of your posts too in various threads

i appreciate that the alcantara is the real stuff, but I am just going for the asthetics rather than value....if it does the job then im happy (i.e. my vinyl "zl1-inspired" front fascia) lol

I may order a small sample and try it out in the back seat at first or something
