Now I have my car back on the road and running great (Thanks to @RealMcCoy with help from @bboyalan @Chris @ Rvenge Performance )

The exterior is all shiny after the 2019 repaint but the interior was bit of a sad mash-up. I started my longer-term plan to rework the interior to the same standard. I was going to replace the Corbeau race seats, but after driving 350 mile back from Medford, I realized that the Corbeau's are actually OK for long drives and with a bit of extra padding, they could be great. So, I pulled the inserts from the seats and the inserts from the door panels and re-trimmed them all to match with some light tan diamond stitched Ultrasuede. The latter was $30 for 2 yards, with shipping off Amazon. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of what turned up. It has a 3/8" foam backing and is diamond quilted.

I'm pretty pleased with how it came out. The next task is to make a cover for where back seat used to be, as that's where the battery and Methanol system lives now.



I added about 1/2" of padding to the seats and adjusted the rake, so now they are actually pretty comfortable.

Looks sweet .... I was thinking when you said cover for the back seat area .... you think about some small storage spaces behind both seats for misc.... items... lord knows these cars shake down our pockets lol ... in many of ways ....

But just a thought .... I was thinking something like I had in my old 87 rx7 rear compartments

Slowly working through lots of little detail things. I wrapped the ugly black surround round my double DIN head unit and the two plastic fill pieces on the center console, with some cf vinyl to match the actual cf trim on the instruments and door fittings. Also fixed lots of rattles and loose trim parts. Its starting to look pretty decent inside.

Just replaced the worn-out OEM handbrake handle. The OEM handle just slides off with a bit of effort and twisting from side to side. There are no aftermarket options for our cars but found one designed for a Subaru BRZ that fit with a small amount of notching at the bottom rear, where it's underneath the leather cover. I have a matching CF wrapped shifter nob on its way.

It's funny how each thing I replace, highlights another list of things that nor look tired and worn. When I started on the interior, I didn't notice how dirty and worn the carpets are - but then I can't really see them when I'm driving. I definitely need to get the carpet deep cleaned or replaced lol. And do something about the work out heal rest on the driver side floor mat.
