Swapping 2008 Mustang Interior

I currently have the dove leather interior with side airbags in my Dark Candy Apple Red Mustang. I've always liked the look of the California Special two-toned interior and am looking to swap mine out to match it.

Here's a list of what I think I need as far as parts:
- Two-toned charcoal/dove upholstery (w/ side airbags)
- Black seat bases (I could live with the dove colored ones if I had too...)
- Black carpet
- Black rear package tray

I've looked all over (aftermarket retailers, eBay, newtakeoff, etc) and haven't been able to find the seat covers or the rear package trays.

As for the carpet, I'm looking at either ACC or Stock Interiors. I've got a request for a quote in at my dealer right now, too.

So here are my questions:
1) Does anybody know where I can find the upholstery (I'd prefer factory over Katskins)?

2) Are there any other pieces I may be missing (trim, steeringwheel, dash have all been taken care of)?

Thanks for your help, you guys have been a huge source of info for me over the years!

You might keep an eye on your local salvage yards. Back in the day I found a just refinished interior for my 67 cougar. Got it dirt cheap. Just an idea.
