gratuitous interior shots

Only CSI gives you more interior shots!

Before the new mats/new shift boot



after





Now, the new floor mats aren't an exact color match (duh - these are 21 year old carpets, after all), but I think the slight contrast looks kinda cool... anyhow, it is a huge improvement over those tattered 1970's block-letter dealies....

Right?

Looks great..it's amazing how similar our interiors look (http://ned.jonx.com/pics/PICT0006.JPG) right down to the different shade of fade around the shift boot. Did those speaker covers come with your speakers? I'm still looking for a set of grilles that can cover my protruding 4x6s.

Wow, I did buy the same mats...I had to take them out when I put in the new interior. The contrast was too much with the new dark brown carpet. I put in the original black ones that came with the car. I'll try to post some pics later.

Forgive the slight mess, the car could use an interior cleaning...

i love the brown interiors, but I wish there were some aftermarket steering wheels (MOMO) in brown leather, or aftermarket seats (Recaro) in brown leather.

Speaking of which, how do you think a wood MOMO fighter would look on a brown interior? The wood is the closest thing i can find to brown.



the momo fighter is a bit pricey, but it is expensive. i also like the momo tuner, but i think the gray leather might look weird in my interior



franky- thanks for the compliment. I am pretty anal-retentive about my car

I think the brown would look much better than the gray. You could even get the Porsche center cap for the steering wheel.

Asking if you should replace that timing belt is like asking if you should re-use a condom that may have in hole in it with a hooker.
