where the hell did you find somewhere to get leather like that for $700? I would suggest getting something like that to make whatever color your car is and then there was a mob that did custom door trims and get some of them made up.

the mob is down in Dandenong, has a wearhouse, and makes up custom leather for you, and all u do is install it yourself, it isnt to hard, dad said he can do it for me, so will go for that, and somehow find somwhere that can do door trims, or i can jsut buy some vinal to do it myself, give it a go,

and also i am changing the whole top part of the dash to back.

what would my best bet be? like re vinal it, or paint it with vinal paint.

lol, i've heard about those place me personally i wouldn't do it, it's not the same, i'd do it propley, i can do everything in whatever colour (2 tone if you want) front and rear seats plus doors , and if you want a logo or something in the seats i can do it for about $1500, im not saying don't go there give me all ya money, but me personally seen that sorta stuff, and it's nothing like the real thing or everyone would do it to save thousands!, lol, not to mention don't know how good thier leather is.

they operate off ebay.

The seats aren't leather, they're vinyl.
And the seat covers themselves aren't that easy to fit, and they look pretty average, UNLESS you remove your existing seat trims and glue these new covers to the seats, that makes it look a lot better, as they kinda don't sit flush normally.
A member on here 4DZILR used these and his interior looks great. I suggest you look him up and send him a PM and ask him how he did it, and have a look at his seats see if that's what you are after.

If you want a logo or something, I think you should get the "Ghia" badge embossed into the seats, I reckon that'd look pretty good, or the tickford wings, but only if your car is an ef2 lol.

700 bucks isnt much at all. i paid 900 for my concorde interior (seats and door trims) and its not like its custom or anything!

guess it depends on the look your after. might aswell give it a shot. see if you can get some offcuts of the leather or whatever they're using and you can do the door inserts yourself. will look a millions times better if the doors somewhat match the seats, otherwise they're gonna stick out waaaay too much

Leather looks great, but it's s**t for durability, so soft it rips easy.
