Yeah i got the venetian from the wreckers as the sun was going into our newborn sons eyes ect and even though he,s old enough now that his seats turned around i liked it and left it on:) i have a lot more plans for the car yet, i really want to retrim the interior in black leather with "CALAIS" Embossed into the seats SS style, but will have to wait until finances permit!

yeah its a shame that, some things are worth paying for, imagine forking out for the leather and then stuffing it up trying to do it yourself.

I got a card from a lady @ autobarn the other day for a local bloke that does some really good interior work ( had pics ect) so im going 2 look @ all options before i go ahead with any thing, but i am hoping by the time i am done with the car she will be a little unique and built just the way i want:p im also holding off on the new leather until my son can be seated into a booster seat (he,s almost 2years old now) so about another 2years (i know a long time 2 wait) but his normal baby capsule presses into the middle leather seat rather hard and has left an indent:( and the booster seat wont do that ect, but the real thing im holding out for is the LS1 conversion should give a little more poke than the old ecotec:D
