I've had this interior lying around for a while so I finally got it installed
Classic Soft Trim

Also ordered the console leather cover, shift boot, and handbrake from topgaiters

its a richer yellow than the exterior but the overall look contrasts well.

installed at Lone Star Trim? Awkward looking ship but Business Bureau gave it an A+ so I gave it a shop. Very impressed. Only $250 for the install, still need to install the door panels, hopefully next weekend

I'm thinking the covers were folded up in a while in my garage so that may have messed with it a bit..
they're located in irving
took them from 9:00am to 2:00pm so 5 hours but I'm guessing they started at 10 so 4 hours.

was this a rip and replace process or an overlay of the existing leather? how would you rate the fitting is it snug or loose?

they didn't rip the cloth they just took it off and reupholstered it with leather
the front two seats are pretty tight the back two are in between loose and tight... definitely added cushioning and made the car feel a lot better!

I don't know yet, I'd like to have the car ready by then but it's just one roadblock after another trying to get everything right, I could roll in the oldsmoblazer (bravada lol) but it's just not the same.

just added some personal touches to my 8, the RX logo snapped in two in the process of painting it black. But it came to use!
