Interior choice

Post by Batman » Fri Feb 01, 2019 1:57 pm

I'm looking at getting Eva-Ann's interior done.
BUT ... I'm not sure what to go for.

Please help me out guys.

Everything will be done.... seat, door panels, roof-lining and carpets.

How I approach things like these are...I have a certain taste and like certain things and dislike others, so this automatically disqualifies some options. I would for instance not like the material inserts, unless its to replicate an SP’s seats in some manner.

Colour choice is what would match the colour of the car or keep it the original colour.

Type of material i.e. leather or vinyl would most likely depend on your budget and if you like leather.

Type of patterns and stitching is if you want it original or what you like.

Lastly, I like to take a very long time and look and look and look and look some more and then decide.

To me this falls in the same category as what colour of paint, resto or mod, what tyres etc. It’s all about personal preferences.

If your plan is to really keep it, then you have endless options, if its just a toy to keep you busy, then I would say not to go ‘bos’ as it would need to sell for a decent price at a later stage.
