    Has anyone replaced their graphite color cloth interior with fawn color leather? If so, please post some pictures. Would like to see what it looks
    like before buying leather covers. THANKS

    Head into the group buys section and look for the Katzkin Leather Group Buy. Lots of pics in there.

    Ah ok. Maybe send JHuey or Andrew H a pm? They're the guys that hooked up the Katzkin group buy. So they might be able to guide you in the right direction.

    Whats your opinion? Will the FAWN color look right with a graphite interior?

    IMHO fawn does not look good at all. I think it's too light if you want to match the gray.

    I take it you're looking at that $300 clearance kit? I think Fawn/tan on grey would look terrible. Tan works with black or graphite but not that light grey. I would have liked to have scooped that kit then changed the rest of the interior to tan in my truck but that's a lot of work. Carpet is about $250, then you'd need to replace the headliner and seatbelts then either swap or dye all the plastic, door panels, lower dash, console, etc etc. Rad red with a tan/black interior would look sharp though.

    I ended up going two tone grey.

    Yea...it was just a thought, a little lite on cash.
    Guess I will save up and buy the correct color.

    I would recommend going with exactly what you want and like. Compromising on something that you're going to see and use every day will just make you hate it.

    Thanks for all your input on this matter. Will save up and thinking
    about getting ice/lite grey outer and graphite center, maybe a logo too.
