Anyone do vinyl/leather on their door panels/dash trim???

I was never into the shiney painted looks that the RS models came with so I bought some orange vinyl to wrap the door panel inserts and the dash trim pieces. Should be easy enough to do. Just seeing if anyone else has done this and if they have pics?


Orange to match the inferno orange paint

Contact cement is what I plan on using

The perforated leather looks so good. Great job Seddon

Sadly if you leather cover the side door panels the door lights will not be seen anymore.

How do all those pieces come off? are they just clips that pop off and back on?

The door silver trim you have to remove the door panels and then you have to either burn or cut some of the permanent plastic rivets.
The other trims come off easily, just held by clips.

Did mine in black using spray adhesive on the doors and hot glue on the trim pieces. I love the way it came out.

Has any one considered doing the side panels of the console? I understand the sides come off which would make them easy to do.

I have mine done, they are not easy since they are so thin and the clips are tight with the added leather it is hard to get it to fit tight.

So does anybody have any pics of the dash pieces done before installing them into the car? I would like to see the back of them and how they are installed and cut.

I like the perforated vinyl look> http://www.fabricdaddy.com/en/perfor...54-inch-fabric

But as I have a 1LE, a black suede would be really nice.
