Interior needs TLC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ok. my black leather wrapped elbow rest on the driver and passenger side doors are loose and need to be replaced. the leather completely peeled off of the driver side... and my leather on the door panels seems to be coming loose. It looks like crap and I would like to replace it with the same as stock.

Also the wood grain that is around the door handles and dash have seen better days, and lastly, my gear shift area looks cheap and plastic compared to the woodgrain paneling and leather... any ideas for good replacements? anyone have any replacement parts or at least known good sources of supply for these items? The inside just really needs a facelift.

Thanks guys/gals.

I would scour our classifieds for replacement parts if you want to replace with OEM equip.

The door handles come in one piece with the wood grain and leather pad and everything. Realoem list price says something like $500, which is absurd. I'll come back with details.

I rewrapped my arm wrest and the leather thats next to it with just normal cloth for a fabric store. Worked great and still durable. for the woodgrain I wrapped it in CF vinyl

Ebay or classifieds for the arm rest. Vinyl wrap the trim.

Yeah those door armrests are insanely expensive with the wood trim. At least $300 even on ebay used.

well that is crazy. I am sure that I will be able to find someone parting something out in the classifieds for half that, if not cheaper.
