But like you say it is your car and of course you should do what you like.
Again, Thanks for looking and the comments. As written in my original text of the post the mats are from my two English Bulldogs and not UGA. However, UGA does always have a great looking English Bulldog as their mascot. You mentioned the whole flow of things with the car, ie. the blue and green calipers. I am looking at it differently. Why should a car have to flow from one side to the other. I mean if you look at the car from any angle there is not one single view where you can see the two colors at once. That is exactly what I like about it and that there are in essence two separate flows to the car. I know I am thinking different from the masses, but why not. Like you said, it is about what we like, so that is ultimately why I have modded the car the way I have.

As far as the color digital cameras want to make black a midtone or grey color. The flash makes it worse. If you have exposure compensation you can take care of this or just shoot in manual mode. You need to under expose basically a largely black scene to accurately reproduce black. The same thing happens with white but just the opposite.
Thanks for the comments! I try to see everyone's opinion equally. Everybody is different and that is exactly why I like to post up my mods. Everyone should see what is possible and that you don't have to mod your car the same way that others are modding. We are all individuals and have individual likes and dislikes. We all look at things differently and I have actually acted on some of my ideas and modded to my liking.

Yes, I will admit that my camera or its settings are not the most ideal for shoot pictures of the interior. I do need to pick up a DSLR and also some classes or books for it. I would love to capture the pictures the same color hue and lighting as the in-person view, but I am just not there with my camera skills. Maybe a proper photographer needs come shoot my car. Any takers?

Thanks for looking and comments! I do remember the Integra Type R and that was more of a Black with Red stitching, but I get the idea. BTW, I thought that car was the shizz when it first came out!

Thanks for looking and comments! As I have mention in some of my previous threads and posts within this thread, I have created two different looks for the same car. Think about it, you can only see two wheels at a time. The wheels are the same size and almost the same weight(2oz difference), so there is no performance issues. I do like both styles and the two different looks to the car. Some people change their wheels a few times per year as they get tired of the same look, but with two different looks to the car and almost a year of this setup I am not yet tired of it.

Thanks! Exactly, I need a better camera and some better skills! Maybe someone can offer to do a photoshoot that has a better camera and skills? Any takers?

Thanks for looking and the comments. It has to do with when I was using the flash vs. not using the flash. Again, I need someone to do a proper photoshoot that has a better camera and skills.

Nicely done! the details are great, specially those tricky corners at the edge of the dash!... although it reminded me a bit of George Costanza's obsession with velvet . Good job!

It looks way too busy for me. A lot like the LS-F interior. I still like the outside though!

Wait... The different colored calipers were weird. But are you really running different style wheels on each side? I don't get it...

Edit: I read your explanation for the wheels above. And while I understand what your saying/doing it looks ridiculous. Sure when you see the car at a stoplight it may look fine but overall as a "whole car" its gross/disgusting.


This is fairly old... DID NOT REALIZE THIS...

I respect your opinion and I wanted to do something different as there is so much of the same mods out there. Regardless I think it's cool to have two different looks to the car. There are people that get it and there are people that don't. There are people that love it and there are people that hate it!

BTW the car looks completely different now. Search for some of IND's customer cars and you'll see.

Ok I thought the car looked completely different now with the V-weave and all. Looks 1000x better IMO now. Before I edited it I said the "and the car looked so great before" I guess I meant it looks so great NOW! lol
Dammn this is old hehe.

Thanks for the opinions. The pictures don't do it justice. I need someone to take some quality photos of the interior.

Everyone that sees the interior loves how it all turned out. Those that have seen the pics say that in person it looks much better. This is a case where the picture just do not do it justice.

I've seen biglare's interior in person. It might not be for everyone, but in the context of his car it is beautiful and totally fitting. Biglare's car is an exercise in utter attention to detail. Beautiful stuff all around.

as other's have mentioned before- there is simply toooo much going on with the wheels and the interior. silver trim, red leather and the ///M sticker were just too much BUT, the quality does look good on the alcantara. I too would have left the dash alone and just did the roofliner and pillars...... I know it's your car and your money but a public forum.
