FINAL PICS ON PAGE 7!!!!

Figure i would post pictures of what i have been up to all winter. I have been re-upholstering my interior! I did all of the work by myself too up to this point. The door panel inserts/center console cover will be done professionally. All black Jacquard Sparco fabric from Italy to match the Sparco Torino II seats, I used Kryon Flat Black paint (started as glossy, and decided to go flat instead) as seen below and a hot glue gun from michaels, a 3m sticky adhesive as seen below too and a dremel tool (of course).

The only thing left is the inserts on the door panels which will get embroidered with a matching thread to the roll-bar in a larger diamond pattern in both front/rear door insterts and handles area. and also the center console cover.

The last few things i have left are to find the door molding (frame side) in black, and black OEM seatbelts (because i don't have enough moola to buy the aftermarket black style from sparco or somebody similar). Finally the floor mats are left to buy from ACCmats.com to match the carpeting i have.

The rear seats are still kind of left in the open. I could have them custom made covers to match the front seats, or build a false floor and wrap that opening. (the second is only an option because i want to find a place to mount my nitrous bottle somewhere.... hehe) I would probably infill that opening with a sub box at a later date however. don't know for sure yet.

I will keep updating this as i come closer to the embroidery and the install of the door panels, roll bar, weatherstripping, and seat belts.

Just thought i'd share with you all what has been going on and such.... any thoughts?

any indication of how well the camo paint is holding up or was this recently done? also, how much texture shows through the paint?

I was not drinking every time i worked on it. haha :hide:

I did that on purpose too, thought it was awesome to get a beer in there also. That or i forgot about it until now.

I can't believe how well the stuff holds up. Yeah it scratches in the places where items move, but only a tiny bit. The stuff is un-believable. A good suggestion is let it dry about 4-5 days if not a week, before installing/heavy handling.

I think i will also be incredibly anal about letting the car sitting in the sun.... I know it should be fine, but ya just never are for sure. I just want to be extra careful with all this work into it.

The texture shows through the paint but not as extreme as OEM material. It's a good mix, sanding did get rid of some also....

Looks awesome... I hope the spray paint holds up!

Are you going to the Accord meet up in the Cities at the end of May? I might show up if I get to see the car/park next to another rare modded 6th gen. :D
