Dressed up the Interior

Couldn't bring myself to pay 500$ for the new colored panels but I wanted to do something to bring a little color to the inside of the car. I saw this done with cloth piping somewhere on here in a DIY thread and decided I would go the vinyl route since it looks more rigid and stock.

Picked this stuff up really cheap and install only took about 30 min total. I did have to take a lot of breaks because it was 99 degrees in my garage. Anyway, for under 20 bucks this mod really helps out the interior.

got it from here, fast shipping too.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/YELLOW-VINYL...E:L:OU:US:3160

install is easy, just need a trim tool or screw driver to pry the trim back in a couple places. It will not go in the very end small portion of the door trim, maybe if I had tried a lot harder but it was way to hot and it looks fine when the door is closed anyway.

Thats when it is the hottest in my garage, the damn sun beats on it from about 4:00 on and it is almost to hot to be in there, maybe I should stop spending money on mods and insulate my garage, lol.

Luckily for me the sun starts setting behind my house so my garage isn't bad after 3. Still hot, but I can stay in there for a bit

Looks good, some of these mods only seem to work well with bright colored cars

Looks awesome! I'm planning a stealth abl with my piping. Elwire fits perfectly in place of the string and shines through for a soft accent. Hopefully I'll have mine up and installed in a few weeks.

I thought about the ABL too with the cloth and Elwire, maybe someday, but right now this really helps, especially since I got my Iggee seat covers installed today too. Pics to come.

Will the ABL still shine thru with the vinyl right on top of it?

looks great! Did you use the vinyl from ebay or find it somewhere else?

So now that they have fixed the site, here are some pics with the seat covers installed too. I think they look really good with the vinyl piping accents.
