Autotrimstore.com if I remember. Just search red houndstooth auto upholstery and you should find it, 19$ sq/yd

LOOKS GOOD!!...that's exactly what I wanted to do with my IOM but haven't been able to find a suede that matches it

I did buy the dash abl, but I never got around to installing it. I wasn't too sure on how to do it, maybe one day.. It would definitely complete my setup

The trim was custom painted, but I bought the seat covers from http://www.shop.jwmotoring.com/5th-G...SeatCovers.htm The manufacturer is cover king, so you don't have to buy them from that website.

I thought about that then rethought it, since I have a convertible I would hate for the sun to fade the red and end up with pink accents. On a coupe that wouldn't be as much of an issue.
It does look good though.

If you use automotive grade vinyl with a UV rating for outdoor use it should be ok.

My door panels and dash are already covered with cloth from the factory. I would need to strip it all off and hope there is a good enough surface to apply the vinyl. Not a project I am willing to take a chance on. I have thought about trying to find some takeoff panels but everyone wants too much.

I wrapped mine with a Suede fabric from a furniture and bed place! I love it over the stock plastic ones just because it looks a little luxury. LOL... But I love that plastic ones too!

I'll let ya know when I get the OEM blue. Selling mine would offset the cost.

I've seen some somebody do it on here, but I'd be hesitant as well.

Will you be replacing both the door and dash trim? Depending on how much you want and how much it costs to ship I may be interested.
