Wow looks great! Good work. What's the material, where did you get it, How hard is it to work with?

Its called UltraSuede from a fabric store. $65/yard.
I probably have $750 in fabric and over 100 hours of time...but it looks just like many high end cars. Thanks for all the comments!

Well deserved, I'm kinda interested in doing this too as a number of panels are pretty scuffed up over the years.

Thats really what the deciding factor was. We bought the car and it was sooo beat up.. almost every damn panel *. So I stripped the car to the frame and started over Its totally worth it. Seeing those bars powder coated is exciting. Its a great contrast. Now my Braum Racing seats will ship this week, had to replace the entire main dash, and will be adding door panels, center console pieces, and knee guard pads off of a Nismo edition as all come with Red Stitching which will tie it all together. Oh and an iPad in the dash!!

i dotn think pics do it justice because of all the different direction suede is laying, maybe you could comb it or something and take a pic.

Man... that is a ton of suede. I'm not a big fan of the material as I don't enjoy the 'fingerprints on purpose' look or durability of it... but hot damn if you didn't do an ultra professional looking upholstery job! Mad propz, as the kids said when I was a kid.

That looks great. I'd really like to do it to mine as well, but I have exactly zero experience with stuff like this.

I assume there were some modifications to the panels due the small gaps and thickness of the material?

Looks great - I think the steering wheel definitely needs to be wrapped in suede/alcantara as well to round off the look.

Ya with some of the panels you will have no choice but to place some seams. Hidden for the most part.
