That looks good, wasn’t sure it would work. Any chance of a shot a bit further out, really fancy a set of sports seats if I’m going to spend any money on the interior but only seem available in black. Grin


I took some pictures with my phone but I now need to work out how to make them smaller so I can post them (the one from yesterday was an older one) - I’ll be back....

This guy has a pair of matching space grey sport seats, which is not quite right but then will be better than current and wouldn't look out of place, probbaly the closest colour you will find sport seats.

http://911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=131557

Then I would do as I did and find a 3 spoke wheel from a boxster in the the correct grey complete with airbag:



Flog your old seats individually / wheel and airbag on ebay to offset the cost!

Last one. Obviously I would have given the old girl a hoover out if I’d thought she was going on a photo shoot.

Anyway, not sure if you can really see what’s what here but it works well in real life imo.

Good luck with your choice!

Just an update, a local company has quoted me £300 to computer colour match the seat and steering wheel center. On balance although I thought expensive its still cheaper and less hassle that finding and buying a suitable replacement interior.

I’ve bought this set to replace my front seats. Looking to sell the rest of it matches yours?

dude seriously spend £50 with gliptone and an hour with a new mirco sponge like you get with a scrubber for the dishes and you are sway.

you will have that done in no time. you just keep dabbing it on, let it dry and go again. might be worth having a hair dryer nearby as its a bit chilly outside at moment.

there is a video on the Gliptone site via you tube showing you how to do it. make sure you clean the leather first with leather cleaner and then get cracking. I was amazed at how well it worked and the colour match.

the steering wheel cover pops out and the seat is easy to do and you can always tape off areas you are worried about catching different colour areas.

or its 4 bolt and the seats are out.

honestly that Gliptone graphite grey will be the same as yours. if there is a slight difference you can always do the other areas nearby to match as you will have loads left from buying a 1 litre pot.
