That looks good. I think I may go for gloss black on the silver trim around the gauges and steering wheel like on the Z/28.

I am so impressed. GM released the Z/28 ring tome for your 1LE birthday. So whats the deal? You married to Al O's sister?

Good looking car man. When you where doing the red around your steering wheel/ shifter did you do anything to protect the suede? I feel like if you mess up at all it wouldnt wipe off like on leather

Actually if you want to be super careful what you can do is just place the tip on the tread and let the ink wick... no coloring needed.

It has to be retouched as over time the sharpie does fade.
