Post Family Photo
Was super nice this weekend, so I caught up on my car washing/detailing somewhat. Actually at least washed every one of them, so decided it would be cool to do a photo op..

And the seats redone in the vette, from "worn the f*** out black to black and red.

I have to admit, most of my motivation for posting this was about the weather. I know what the weather is like up there :mrgreen:

The vette is just lowered on the stock bolts, so you can try it with no money out of pocket and see if you like it. You know, after you dig it out of the snow bank :banghead

The 'Vette seats look great. Maybe add some more mod red panels to the interior?

Yeah maybe -- I dont want too much red, but some highlights probably will help. Ive been thinking about the shift boot and the ebrake boot. Also, you cant really tell from the pic, but the stitching on the red is black, looks pretty cool. Red plastics/panels would have to be to a minimum, I'm not a big fan of those.

The C5 Z06 has, IIRC, a red knee bolster, glove compartment, and lower door panels. I like the mod red interiors on some 'Vettes, but wouldn't do it on mine.

What is IIRC?

Something i often found hideous was the gawdy interior on some vettes.
Even the pic of the Z06 above is alittle much for me.

Yeah I agree, if I add anything else it will be subtle.

I wouldn't call Mod Red gawdy or hideous. I think it looks good with silver and black exteriors; I even liked it with an Electron Blue car I saw. Just a matter of personal taste I guess.

IIRC = If I Recall Correctly

I wouldn't touch the rest of the interior. I like the looks of it with the red seats and that's it. :thumb

Thanks!

A place down here did them, Redmond's Auto Uphosterly. I had used another place previously to redo my GF's miata seats, called Healiner's Plus, but their customer service just sucks and made me want to beat someone rather than do business with them, although they did also do a good job on those seats.

I like it Erik.... I vote to leave it the way it is now too. If I had kept the slider c4 I was planning on doing the same with it to make it less red. Surprisingly though the guy that bought it... bought it because of the black exterior and red interior. go figure...

Those lucky ones that got to see it would confirm... It was no show car. I do miss it though. 89 vette convertible black w/ black top and red interior. It was a 6 spd too...
