TOOK BETTER PHOTOS OF THE REAR SEAT INSTALLED THIS MORNING
(Still hard to capture the true color since the car is in the garage and the battery is disconnected) I guess I'll take photos of the whole interior when they are all installed and take the car out of the garage to get proper lighting.

Updates: Continued working on the headrests and the plastic pieces were dyed with black leatherique dye. They were sanded down and then sprayed with 3 coats of black dye. I am finally done with dyeing all the pieces that I need. All I need to do is just assemble the seats and put them back in the car! Soooooo Close!!!!

HEADREST DONE!





SEATS WITH THE HEADRESTS DRYING













SANDED DOWN THE PLASTIC PIECES BEFORE DYEING THEM
