Is the black area upholstered with vinyl, other, or painted?
What about the red area?
The black areas are upholstered in black vinyl and are glued on like the A-B pillars.
The red area is alcantera sp?, that is sewn to the black vinyl, it has a thin backing and is glued to the roof. The original 911Rs had black painted metal, and a piece of red Perlon glued to the roof. We searched for months to find the correct red Perlon, but no luck. The Alcantera is the right color, and looks correct, but feels like suede. It turned out much better than I thought it would, and I like it.

This is a picture of a real R for reference.
