    My SOMs Interior - Ebony Leather and Ostrich

    Well as most of you know I have been working on this for a couple months now. I tried to come up with something that was very exotic but not outlandish. The car is a show car and to compete at some of the national shows we go to a full custom interior is a must...not just off the shelf stuff. I wanted...like the theme of the car...to keep things stock appearing and just upgrade them (thus the use of stock WS6 seats instead of racing seats or whatever.) The ostrich is either a love it or hate it thing...I have always loved the way it looks and wanted to incorporate it into the interior to give it that little something that nobody else is going to have. I think it turned out perfect and I am very pleased with it. Most of the stuff is still so new it has wrinkles still in it but that will work out in time.

    Of course much more info and tons more pics of the car can be seen in this thread:

    Trust me had I wanted a short shifter in it I would have one but I like the looks and feel of the factory Hurst shifter much better. If you notice the stock Hurst stick has been chromed. (Infact I have short stick I put in for about 5min and didnt like if anybody is looking for one.)

    Looks good. The colored stitching really makes it look higher end. Nice touch doing the shifter boot. Did you do the headliner too?

    Yes, its actually....LEATHER. The only real leather on the factory seats is the perferated part in the center. These are must softer and smell great!

    Beautiful car!

    I had red leather inserts installed on my factory Camaro seats, but this thread really makes me want to completely redo them. If I do ever do them again, it'll be with TA seats and suede. I'm really digging the dark look and colored stitching on yours!

    Also, where did you get the armrest cover? I found a place online selling them once, but I'd really like to make my own with some leftover leather I have so it matches the seats...

    redlinegoods.com did the armrest cover, e-brake boot and shifter boot for me. You can send them your material to use...I was going to do that with some ostrich but descided I didnt want to over do it.
