By now I was leaning strongly towards Alcantara. The stock glovebox is simple plastic, but we have seen cars with that fuzzy soft material, right? So in fact for the GT-R I had always wanted this kind of premium look, but I just didn't know if I should stick to a black on black theme. Maybe something crazy like orange or red, might be fun to do in the glove box, for example.
While I mulled about what color Alcantara to order, Cesar sent me the following photos, to show me the necessary dimensions for the cloth.
|This photo did it for me. Let's go with a black lining...|
And of course, Cesar kept upping the game, telling me he had ordered a bronze die to stamp the "SRS Airbag" into the dashboard!
|What exactly is the technical term for this anyway? Gauge surround trim?|
I figured the next step would be wait as the Alcantara reached Cesar and he worked his magic. But no, he had a surprise for me...
