    Hi,

    I bought my car about 5 months ago with the intention of leaving it as standard but the grey/brown interior was driving me crazy so I decided to buy a whole new black leather interior as the parts became available.

    I assumed it would take a long time to track everything down so it would make a good summer project but before I knew it I had a full carpet, leather front/back seats, dashboard, centre console, black trim, and a black roof liner sitting in my house.

    I really wanted to avoid doing this in winter since I would only have a limited amount of daylight and to be honest, if I could go back in time I would have left it until summer. I don't have a garage so I had to sit out in the freezing cold weather and spent many hours in the dark trying to fight on with it.

    Anyway, it was worth it in the end. Here are some before and after pictures, I'm really pleased with it!

    Before:

    Finished!

    Looks very good, I've got the same work ahead of me on mine too.

    I've got the seats and door cards just looking out for all the other bits and bobs now, I think a trip to quarry motors will be in order some time in the new year!
