Default Show me your interior modifications

Looking for some ideas to modify my interior. I have removed some of my black pieces and replaced them with grey pieces. I also swapped out my steering wheel.

I've been pimping my ride. I think I retired too early. Lol

Swapped the footwell lighting, added lighting to the cupholders and put some ambient lighting behind the seats. I picked up a proclip center grip mount from the for sale thread, but their phone mounts suck, so I used a Scoche magnetic mount instead. Then I painted just the center console fusion gray metallic and polished it with a matte clear to match the factory finish. I just installed the MGW flat stick and cue ball. I've got Lloyds Ultimats with the crossed flags and Stingray logos.

He took a yellow marker and colored all the threads to make them yellow. Cheap but it takes some time and work on your part.

Wow: the gray panels look great. I hate to think how much that would cost and who you can find to do that. Can you give me some idea of the costs?
My interior is the 3LT in black leather. I love the contrast you have created.
Thanks,

What did you use to paint the stitching. What color marker and where did you purchase it from. Looks great.

Took about 1.5 hours. Got 2 markers from here:
http://www.markersupply.com/zigtema1.html#.VW0zLkb5GXo

I learned a lot about application tips from:
https://www.corvetteforum.com/forums/...ever-imho.html

The steering wheel is a little challenge but starting up turning it and stopping it made it doable.

The front of the A8 shift boot required putting the shifter in N and then shutting off engine and finally putting the shifter in M to get the best access.

Wipe with a cloth at least every 5 inches and I found the fine tip on one end got bigger after doing a few items and I used it anyway to finish the whole job with one marker and some to spare. The color on this marker is an exact velocity yellow match when I laid a scrap stained cloth on a fender.

I am leaving the pen and wipe cloth in the cubby to touch up as needed.

Bottom line: I REALLY like the way it turned out and it would have cost me $395 to have it done on a build and I got a great appearance mod for only $5 in marker cost and 90 minutes of my time.

Thanks,
I agree with you, I needed some contrast. The Trim pad (over the glove box) was 275.23, Upper Molding was 295.13 the Finish Panel (covers the handle) was 93.44 and the side panel (left side of center console not shown in photo) was 170.10. I had an auto upholstery shop install the Upper Molding and Finish Panel. Dealer installed the Trim pad. I installed the center console arm rest, which was 150.00. Three screws, my kind of project. I also installed the side panel.
