Custom E46 Interior in the works

Names Uneeq of UneeqInc Innovations I bought an e46 328i in bad interior shape and I customized it a bit and want to know whjat you e46 fanatics think, any feedback is welcome.

All the woods were cracked so instead of replacing them decided to repair and paint, chose ferrari red to match the calipers, the steering wheel was ripped up, so i stripped it to the metal and proceeded to rebuild the mass with fiberglass matt and kitty hair bondo then prepped for paint. This is the result so far. Think before i sell im changing the headliner and pillar cloth to black and im going to paint the plastc part inside the b pillar that holds the seat belt to contrast the new black cloth. Opinions feedback welome

Nice paint work, kinda of clashes with the black but I would imagine it look OK with an Imola interior.

Props on doing something different

That said, it is a lot of red... This is how you should do an interior with these type of accents: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=760426

Thank guys I custom paint bikes and pretty much anything else the reason for all the red is that the previous owner was a pot hed and didnt take care of the wood any of it. It was all cracked chipped and some corners missing. Sinstead of investing in buying peices figured all over coverage with some nice paint gives it a fresher look, they can always be swapped out. But thanks for looking and the feed back even from you alwaysbored786. If you ever need paint work I would still help you out.

Im looking to do a alpine white car with black interior, theres a new product on the market that is clear and glows in the dark after being charged by light, mix it in the clear spray it over the alpine white and at night they ll glow. Just want to see it in a car
ive tested peices and works great. Thanks again

+1 Petey, I think you word you are looking for is "overkill". Love the concept, but WAY too much red. The trim should accent the interior, not scream at it.
