new seats

1491905383323.jpg

My new red seats down in smooth Italian leather . I decided to upgrade the interior and get rid of the wood grain and put new Kevlar in . Also new leather door trim , new console, connected the old console with a Honda S 2000 model console . I always thought there was something missing between the seats at the back. Just have this elastic pull out pocket which I don't like . Maybe get new carpet as well, have got the floor mats done . The final project will be finished in 10 days time . I know many will not like it , and some will. I done it for me as I like it . Will post the finished job next week .
Cheers everyone
Kevvy

Hope I done the picture upload right .

Looks very nice. I'm curious about pix of the Kevlar trim. I've been thinking about doing something similar.

Kevvy, Wow !

Seats look great, but I never guessed they were going into a Green car.


Great plan !

Like classics of the 50s when British Racing Green cars often had Red interior trim in TR3, MGTD, Austin Healey.


The full leather console trim looks like it is all one piece for rear console and front centre console, if so how did you do the installation ?


And the high centre storage above the console lid , can you provide more details of that ?

The console was taken out of a Honda s2000 . It fitted great after some slight modification. It has two storage compartments . One facing the front and one that drops down from the top. The old console was taken out and then fiberglass into one piece.Picked the car up today .I love the Honda console and gives the car a real sporty look. My opinion only. Actually the green looks great with the red. Also got the dash parts done in Kelvar , and the roof has Kevlar on it also .
Thanks Mate

Very happy today , the door trims were also done in Italian leather shipped to Thailand and done by a Thai tradesman . HAHA.
The console is great , the kelvar is so nice and the roof looks good too.

Hi
I live in Thailand so things are alot cheaper here. They were done in Italian leather and the cost was $650 Australian. or 24,000 Thai baht... You can them cheap as $400 aus , if you just go for the cheaper leather . That was made and fitted . I am very happy in the workmanship of the seats
Kind Regards
'kevin
