Default Ideas for interior mods

Since there is little that can be done to the exterior besides totally custom stuff and paint work to the 04-05 GXP. I'm thinking since I spend so much time driving and enjoying the car from the inside I might change a few things,

And since I saw that suede headliner thats a no brainer
But why stop there. I might aswell do the sides of the center console and the center arm rest'* front and rear. Also I saw some carbon fiber stuff like vinyl at Canadian Tire that is heat formed I might do the trim piece around the stereo.

thoughts ?

I've done CF Vinyl, and Frankly, i'm looking at redoing it with metallic, clear coated body paint this summer.

Too cheap IMO..

Doesn't the GXP have some faux CF stuff already? you wouldn't want to clash with that...

no i dont think you should do it but then again it might look al right. You dont want the cf to look cheap with the cf already in the car. What I think you should do is put a nice subwoofer in the truck in a custom box. Maybe add a few TV'* in the head rest or something like that. For me I rarely have people in my back seat but it would be pretty sweet. I think electronics in a car makes it more hmmm luxurious? =P

I agree on the tvs, you can never have too many...just don't buy super cheap tvs from companies like pyramid and pyle...they always break...I've had really good luck with poweracoustik screens.

Yeah any screens will come from Custom Cars in Syracuse Nolan won't do me wrong. I have plans for 2 7inch monitors and maybe a 17 inch lcd.. have also kicked around the idea of ripping apart a PS3 and stuffing it into the fold down armrest in the back seat.

Door panels and visors, bud. Don't overlook them. They can change the whole 'feel' of the car.

hey dont put down pyle like that. i have had pyle tvs for a long time and never had a problem with them. pyle is actually good brand if you know what you are doing.

Not sure if you noticed, but this thread is almost a year old I doubt you'll see a response.
