'Stealth' Interior Pics

As many of you know, I have been working on changing my interior by replacing the cloth seat covers and by doing some plastic painting using SEM Plastic paints.

I have posted some before and after pictures for you to ponder. If anyone is interested in doing something like this, rest assured it is very easy to do, and the results can be amazing! I now feel like I have an entirely different car, and I love the way it looks. I was luke-warm on the car with the cloth seats and gray interior, but now I can't get over how good it looks!

Looks great a big improvement over the stock gray. Can I ask what colors are available and where you got them.

The black is called Landau Black, and the silver color on the armrest is called Medium Platinum Metallic, both by SEM. The black is made for interiors, and the platinum is a bumper paint. I had to go to an auto paint store to get them. It is a paint specifically designed to be used on plastic pieces. We use SEM paints at work to 'refresh' tired airplane interiors, and they work well in cars too. You just have to be sure to THOROUGHLY clean the piece before you paint it. I use CRC Contact Cleaner in a spray can. It gets rid of finger oils and such, and dries without leaving any residue.

Mjewell,

I've been following your posts on the interior and that is really an incredible job. Now you've got me thinking about painting my interior panels too! Maybe I should stop following your posts!

Your car looked good before but boy what a difference. It must smell like a brand new car too with all that new leather.

I will verify that the car smells better already. The cloth seats sucked up every nasty smell that was out there...the were pretty nasty, kind of had a musty smell. When I took the seats out, I cleaned the carpets really well, and when the new leather went in, the musty smell was gone.

I recommend the seat covers...they make the car look entirely different and really classes it up!

I just received my interior hides from Shelby today and am pretty pumped. They are the same as MJewel has pictured here. Hopefully I can do my install as well as he did his.

I was sweating this delivery because some people received the seat hides without the headrest covers while others did get the headrest covers. I luckily got 4 headrest covers with my delivery so I'm feeling pretty good.

I can't think of a better way that I could have spent $209. Right now it looks like Shelby only has GT500 interiors for $350 (also a good deal). I paid $159+50 shipping for standard GT interior hides.

Im doing something similar, although basically my entire interior is already black, except for the dash kit accross the front, trading that for someones black. Planning on flat black on the chrome, will wait a while to see what i think.
