    Exterior: Debadged, color matched White grill surround, Custom Mesh Grill,BHLM,Clear Corners,Tinted Tail lights Black/Clear/Black, Tinted 3rd Brake light 5%tint driver/passenger windows, Limo tint Rear and back windows Interior: Black Leather Door Panels Engine: Deckplate Mod Hayden Transmission Cooler Exhaust: DynoMax Muffler with 2.5 piping after cats Lighting: 6k Headlights,3k Fogs Wheels and Tires: MB Razors wrapped up in 265/70/16 BFGoodrich All Terrain KOs
    Materials: Spray Glue, Flathead screw driver, *Material of choice ( i used Pleather), scissors/blade, Hair dryer, time and patience.
    Total hours: 3-4.. but i know some of you guys can do it in less.
    While i was in Downtown LA, i saw Pleather and i had an idea.
    total cost (for me). $12 for Pleather, but this could cost less or more depending on what material you choose.

    removing the fabric was the easier than i thought.

    I kept the fabric and used it as a template.
    Used 3m Spray glue
    I also used it to layer with the Pleather.
    I used a hair dryer to heat up the material and make it easier to shape.
    I used a flathead to push in inch by inch (that was the hardest part and most time consuming)

    Now the install.
    Trimming around the door handle outlet was the most difficult. I got it to fit, but Since the Layered material is thicker, i had to push harder to get the handle to match with the holes. After a few minutes..installation was complete.

    while i had everything dissassembled i decided to go ahead and take off the carbon fiber sticker that i had put over the button panel thing. Renewed it with some Black and clear.
    took me a total of 3-4 hours..
    now i got some leather..i was thinking of making the armrests leather too..hmm.
