This interior looks sweet!

Anyone know how the seats are done? Is it paint or what?

How much of a pain would it be to do this?

I seriously wouldn't be surprised if that person spray painted their seats, but that is a really stupid way to change the color of you upholstery. Why ruin the interior of a relativly new car by spray painting the leather?

The correct way to change the color of your seats is to re-upholster them with new covers. I got my Katskin upholstery from this place... http://www.autoleathers.com/HTML2/AL.MAIN.FS.html

IMO, this guys interior turned out really bad. Look at the scratches he already has under the air bag, and look at the paint chipping off the door sill. Plus, the texture looks like he really caked the paint on, looks really bad to me.

To do a color change on the interior plastics, you need to remove the plastic parts, sand them a bit to help the paint adhesion, then just paint them. I would reccomend using a dye instead of a conventional paint. You spray the dye just like regular spray paint, the main difference between the dye and regular spary paint is that the dye is thinner and more durable. Due to the fact that the dye is thinner, it is able to seep into the small pours in the plastic which will result in better adhesion.

I would reccomend doing a search on interior color changes. This has been discussed a few other times, so you should be able to get some good tips from the other threads. thumbsup

Also note the large chrome exhaust exiting from the rear of the car.

Chrome exhaust??? Try stainless steel. I know the angled look of the universal muffler was done intentionally, but it just looks crooked not cool.

the check engine light goes on and off intermittently due to the custom exhaust set up

Why would exhaust make the CEL come on?

I say he parts-out the car. He'd get way more for it, because the complete product BLOWS.

I call the seats thumbsup (assuming they aren't painted)
