Default Pulled the trigger!

I've been debating for years to go with a set of redline's door arm rest covers

Below is what I have now



im getting red leather covers with black stitching I think it will look really good with the rest of the interior

last pic is a bit old since it still has the original steering wheel

I dont have any good pics of behind the seats at the moment, the back seats are gone and in their place is a sloped amp rack, and a milhouse box for the trunk deck

Im aware the black and red is a love or hate thing

Here is a link to the build thread for the console.
https://ls1tech.com/forums/appearanc...-progress.html

I'll snap some close ups tonight if I have a chance


It's a five speed console that I cut the cup holder lower section out of, cut the ash tray out to the shifter opening. Filled the cubby in and fiberglassed the indent in the center in smoothed and bondoed and had it covered and double stitched the same time I had my door panels and seats done

And......... got these in today! wanted to get started on them but it came with a slip of paper that says for instructions visit their site. when you click the link for instructions its for a shift boot install..... So I am waiting on a response from Redline, It looks pretty basic but I want to see how to handle the area inside the handle before going at it myself

Too many pieces painted red for my taste. And the old school gauges in a modern car clash for me.

But the center console and seats look good.

Like I said black and red are a love hate kind of thing, I'm hoping the arm rest covers tame the painted look a bit though. I debated going back to black with all the painted parts, but I couldn't do it I like that splash of red to much. I am gonna have to figure something out with the door handle guard though since it is painted to match the arm rest. I'll just have to change it when I get there.

Guages I was torn on when I did this build back in 07 everyone was doing autometer guages and I wanted something different and at the time I was going kinda retro with any way. Kind ofnhow the 05 body style mustangs were going. I think it would look better if they were held by something a bit more 3 dimensional as opposed to that flat piece of steel holding them now. Just never had the time
