Default suede and leather interior

i decided i was going to upgrade my interior. i started by disassembling the rear deck lid and covering it in suede. i am in the process of covering all the pillars in leather. it is looking great. i used a color that is darker then the factory tan leather to get a two tone look. i will do the head liner in suede i think as well. not sure on that though. started out this material was bought for my trunk so i could have a total matching leather and suede interior and trunk and i have yet to make it to the trunk.

yah i was planning on doing seude headliner when i had winter break but never got around to it (went out and bought all the materials but yah not enough time). I have gucci pillars and stuff so its kind of the same idea. Its funny when get done and it looks so different because i really didnt think it would look that different but its a cool and easy way to make a big difference. pics of the work would be awesome. good luck!

i do not know how to poswt pics. i took some of the deck lid out of the car...hard to see n the car in a pic with tinted windows, as well as a rear pillar before and after. i was surprised how well it turned out. i figured worse case i could paint them to get the two tone look but i am very happy with the leather and the suede
