View Full Version : Look at what I did

12-09-2001, 05:36 PM
Well the interior needed a little help, and so instead of painting it, I did this
Hope you like these pics
BTW In real life it looks a little better.

I can't see the pictures. If you want to email them to me I can host them for you...I'd be interested to see them as I'm sure others are too.

12-09-2001, 05:55 PM
Damn this sux, they where just working too http://www.freshalloy.com/
Maybe it will work if you copy and paste them??

12-09-2001, 06:01 PM
Still no go. What did you do to the interior?

12-09-2001, 06:01 PM
Still a no go. I'm happy to help you out if you want.

12-09-2001, 06:02 PM

Cool,,,you saw it.
That was the first try and still had little bubbles in it, but the 2nd time around it came out perfect no air bubbles or anything.

You know, for you people who want to host pictures on free webspace, I have a simple solution.

Simply make a simple HTML page that ONLY has a link to the picture!

All it needs to be is a file called something.html (or something.htm) with the following contents:

<IMG SRC="picture1.jpg"><BR>
<IMG SRC="picture2.jpg"><BR>
(repeat as many times for as many pictures)

There, then you can post the link to that file and everybody can view the pictures!

If you want it even simpler, I don't recommend doing this but most browsers can cope with just having the <IMG> tag and nothing else.

that looks NICE! did you do that to the center stereo/climate control console as well? Did you buy the kit or DIY??

12-09-2001, 06:16 PM
Ya I did it myself, and some patience..Really easy to do though and comes out nice for the cost of $15 for the vinyl, and I have one question about the dash surround thing, I cant seem to take it of because the wheel adjustment thing is in the way.
Now does anyone know how to take that of without taking the adjustment thing of??
Sorry for asking but I've only had a 240 for about 3 weeks now http://www.freshalloy.com/

Yah, drop the steering column into you lap and take out all the switches...do a search for "dash bulb" and you'll find some good instructions.

Wassup, look good, is that that sticker stuff?
Anyways, where did you get that boot, It looks like it is made out of thick leather, real nice, let me know! http://www.freshalloy.com/

We sell that carbon look vinyl 15"x48" for $25 shipped Eurostreet graphics 1-888-euro st-1 http://www.freshalloy.com/

Looks nice, but I hope it doesnt start shrinking in the summer. Chances are it will, I did this many years ago and had the same problems.

Tip: Be careful just how much you decide to cover with that stuff. Eventually, you just might get rid of it and go with something more reliable like nice painted surface. That adhesive is not easy to remove..

Oh damn never thought it would shrink in the summer http://www.freshalloy.com/
Oh and the boot came with the car, I had no idea it wasn't stock http://www.freshalloy.com/
BTW Can someone post a pic of a stock one??
And thanx for all the compliments http://www.freshalloy.com/

12-10-2001, 08:21 PM
If they will shrink in the summer, is there a way to "pre-shrink" it like shrinking clothes in the wash before you wear them? http://www.freshalloy.com/

Don't know where he got his boot, but I've got a homemade leather boot. Went to a craft shop and got some thin leather. Then when I was out visiting my parents, I had my mom take apart the stock boot and use it as a patern to make a leather one. Came out really nice, looks OEM. So, if you have somebody in your life who knows how to sew, this could be a cheap solution.

I'm not a huge fan of the carbon fiber look, but it does look like you did a great job on the install. I want to go with the aluminum dash kit offered by the guys at Ecutivecleancar.com (or something to that effect)....has anybody had experience with the aluminum kit. If so, then how well did it fit and was it easy to lay down???

It is executivecleancar.com

That company is owned by Chris May, one of the local 240 guys in atlanta, and a person who posts here on rare occasions.
www.executivecleancar.com/240 (http://www.executivecleancar.com/240)

The kits they have are pretty high quality. I have seen a few of the different carbon fiber and wood grain ones. I haven't seen an aluminum kit yet, but I have seen the sample aluminum material they use, and it would look good. There is an aluminum that is just brushed and then there is one that has a thick coating on it. I am not sure which would look better. It probably depends on your tastes, but Chris probably has more insight.

The kits they sell are good, and Chris is a good guy to deal with.

nobody? I want to find out...

If there is shrinkin at all, it will be in the winter time... COLD - Shrink, HEAT - Expand... but I doubt you will hardly notice the shrinkage...
