its a white and grey plaid. it looked good, but it faded a lot lol. looks like **** now. thats what you get with cheap walmart fabric.
and it was hard to make it look good since the fabric needs to be straight to keep the pattern looking good but thats not so easy.. lol



and i learned my lesson about having a light color on the arm rest

a few dirty days at work taught me my lesson lol

Does the plastic on the underside look too bad to leave alone? Or did you staple into the plastic?

no its glued. so it'll leave a residue. and the stock grey is just too boring.

on top of this, i will be going with a charcoal or maybe black suade on the headliner. but waiting to do that cuz it'll be a PITA lol

I'm gonna do the suede headliner. I don't think I could be satisfied with fabric covering all the plastic

i love how mine looked at first before it faded. i will be very happy with the tweed look. might even use it on the headliner depending if i have enough left over.

your truck look like its sponsored by American Eagle on inside. Black will look great. I'm thinking of painting my entire interior with black.

There's a painting how-to made by "barrman" that kind of lost it's pictures but gives you a good idea of what to do. I have to see if i end up in a house w/ a garage in 10 days to do this mod. Can't do it outside like in Vegas haha. But my interior is already pretty black, a custom dark interior with tinted windows would be sick.

not 100% perfect, but to most people it'll look good.

tweed gets pretty hard to stretch around weird curves and bends

but for the most part, im really happy with it.
