    Panels look fantastic Chris. Do you have a S2000 Shift Knob? I have perf leather around the one I have, looks similar to yours.

    ^Guess I got a thing for perforated leather haha. Need to get the e-brake to match too, might try making a boot for it. Will probably do black for it though, like the shift knob.

    Perf city!

    Thanks Andy, wanted to do something since I’m sticking with the tan interior.

    Thanks Frankie. As soon as I put the panel up to the door with the silver trim, I realized I’ll be happy with it. There’s also a little red on my gauge cluster and shift knob/trim, so it won’t be completely out of place haha.

    Thanks Evan. My knob is TSX. Is your shift pattern red too?

    Yeah I know what you mean, last time I took the console out I had a little difficulty with the e-brake handle too. I found that it was too far to one side, so I just bent the bracket it’s mounted to a little (like pulling a dust shield away from a brake rotor) and then it went right in. I’ll take a photo but I have a little room to have a boot on it. May even wrap some perf leather around the handle part if I can do it cleanly.

    I think the thing that doesn’t look OEM about the shifter trim is that it covers part of the “pencil holder” on the passenger side. But I never use it so it doesn’t bother me too much. I used to want to paint the shifter trim black or something but the silver was less out of place after I swapped the HVAC/radio bezel to the silver one that came on 01-02 models. This pic isn’t well lit, but kinda shows what I mean. They match pretty well in person.

    My cluster bezel is that same silver (you may remember this thread: http://www.6thgenaccord.com/forums/showthread.php?t=47677), and I’m switching the window switch trim on the doors to silver as well, so I think that will further tie all the silver pieces together. Going to leave the center console woodgrain though for now. I guess I’m kind of doing what Lexus did with the previous gen IS interior….silver window trim, HVAC with woodgrain center console.

    Probably more than you wanted to know lol, but I know you’re a man of detail so I wanted to explain my thought process haha. My Type-S shifter trim could stand to be repainted though, there is a paint chip. If I didn't have any other silver in the car though, I'd probably paint it black instead of replacing it with a 1G CL piece, I guess the boy in me likes the big red 'S' there. :)

    Yeees.. I had to do the same exact thing, when mounting it back on. Well, if you're gonna wrap it, there you go, more perf in the city. ;)

    ^It's okay, Mikey doesn't like this shifter trim covering the pencil holder either lol.

    I'll get a pic of the cluster, it still needs a coat of clear so right now the finish is pretty flat.

    CF looks great in the charcol interior, you should do it! :)
