Wanted to share my interior DIY project

I drive a 1ls so the interior isn't the most luxurious. I didn't like the way the door panels and dash trim were so plain so After looking at a post from 2013BlackLS I decided to wrap them in red suede. I spent under $100 ( that's with the purchase of a few tools I needed for the install)

BEFORE:











HERE'S THE AFTER:

Now where's the DIY on how to do it? I just need to know if you glue it and the tools you use it...

Nice and yeah it seems way harder than it is. Where'd you buy the houndstooth? I looked for it at all the fabric stores and couldn't find it.

What did you wrap yours with? The hardest part for me was figuring out how o unplug everything from the driver door, passenger side was a breeze.

Yup, but it will be worth it. I thought about doing it myself, but I had already bought these seat covers. I also switched out my stock LS trim for a custom painted red trim, with custom ABL installed!

The red suede looks great. and for that price, you could change it out anytime you get tired (not that you will) of it. GREAT JOB.
