Im customizing my seats! Say goodbye to that tacky cloth in the middle of the seats. Im replacing it with a solid color, probrably red or grey. I want to do leather but I can't afford it. My grand father used to be an upolsterer and has all the equiptment to do it! Soon I will have a two tone Red or Grey/Black interior! What do you guys think... is red or grey good on a black car? I figure it will be like the M5 interior just cloth. I need some constructive critizism here. Also if you know of any good places online to buy automotive upolstry then let me know ASAP. Thanks!

In the words(and manerisms) of Dave Chapelle. "Tacky, tacky, tacky". Best bet go with the grey. IMHO tho

Im also considering getting the SE-R logo embordered into my headrests. So I have 2 votes for grey(from 2 BBs), and 1 vote for red now. I saw a car in the SE-R.net picture section with red/black 2 tone and it looks pretty good. More votes pleaze!!!

it looks like im going to go with grey. Now should I get the headrest embroidered in the front and the back or just on the front seats?

I think its an awesome idea. If I had the skillZ to do it I'd probably do it myself. Solid Grey would definatly look cool tho IMHO. Can anyone here photoshop up some pics of the 200 seats?

Dammit Greg...you stole my idea!! Not too long ago I was thinking bout getting some interior work done, just to be different. I was gonna have the middle of my seats done in red tweed fabric, and "200sx" done on the top of my pass rear seat and "SE-R" donr on the top of my left rear seat.

remember, both red and yellow give more hp per squ. yd. than any other color!



grey/slate/silver should look pretty good, or even black. just my $0.02

very nice job on the euro antennae, BTW!

I just got mine redone and also did the door panels and back panels Red/grey middle .you've got to really see it in person cause the way it sounds it may sound tacky but looks ok. Honduhs s2000 dosen't loo tacky to me with red in it.lots of sports cars do it and cost tens of thousands more.let's see RX7 TT, bmw M series, porsche, yup they do it stock!

In 1979 you could get blue plaid in your Ford Fairmont or Mercury Zephyr. So what is your point? M5 interior, tacky with the red. S2000, tacky, you know what is tacky, that baseball glove stiching on the Audi TT's thats horible. And putting some bright/loud interior in something like a sentra or 200sx....thats just bad. And I have very rarely seen interior work that looks good/close to stock. You can just about always see that it isnt stock from either quality of material, stiching, or instalation. Most the time it looks 'loose' on the seats. If you want to do it its your business....and mine to make fun of it

maybe no one likes doing that to the interior because the majority of people on here have a wife and kids! most of the younger generations like that stuff!
