Appreciate the kind comments everyone.

@stucart: did my best to find a similar angle before/after pic for comparison. The car started off with a pretty standard full sand beige interior with extended leather and regular seats. I added a pair of carbon back Recaro sportster in black leather as the starting point of my interior project and finished things off (for now) with the retrim and paint work to try and blend everything in with a classy retro theme.

@Phil 997: Love the blue accents in your car, its similar to what I had in mind. I don’t hv plans to do more for now but it’s good idea to add more plaid accents, especially in the rear seating area. The speedster is definitely an inspiration and the Fuchs design is an all time favorite for me. However, my car was not opt’d with 5 lug making my wheel selection very limited with the centerlocks unless I go the custom route. It’s in the plans but not a priority at the moment.



lol those dogs are cute . did Linas do the seat retrim , reason I ask is that there are very limited guys who have the tooling to put a crest on the seats. I guess you have centre locks maybe a Fuch theme would work ok black centres and silver/chromed rims it would continue that retro theme . I understand visions and projects take time especially when the aftermarket speedster humps are 5/6k . but I really like the retro theme looks so cool on a cab. Thumb

I’m actually located in Hong Kong and the work was done locally by a shop called Alea Leather. They’ve done a great job and I will definitely go back to them for further work in the future. And yes, additional bits and bobs will be in the works including rear seats cushions.

Thanks everyone for all the positive comments.

Keep us posted on progress as its an interesting and unusual concept. I dont think I have every seen the leather replaced for anything other than alcantara. but I do think we will start to see more as the retro theme is growing in popularity Thumb
