      I started out with a stock black leather interior.





      tried a few ideas...





      ^^decided on this pattern^^

      then redid my kids seats to be sure I liked it finished. the new one is on the left



      picked the style of seats.



      and started the process.



      front lower covers all sewn up!



      a sneak peak of the fronts installed.



      headliner hatch trim, the first official piece of the black headliner swap is in!







      rear seat



      yes 3 rear heaters in the rear seat







      and just started on the headliner yesterday.





      I will post more pics as things progress.

      I plan to have the car complete for the GCVW 2011 show in August.

      YW or any other cloth for that matter. He owns a company that does a lot of printing on boat covers. It molecular bonds with the materials and will last. I have done a pattern similar to yours but using the BMW motorsport colors and using a 415 topstich center thread.

      I hear you never have enough time to work on your own projects. I managed to do my cabrio in 2.5days before a show about 4 years ago. That was my last interior I did for myself. I have 4 other cars I want to do interiors, along with my wifes 2010 EOS

      You can find them in a 2002 GTI or Wolfsburg Jetta with the high (square) bolsters. I have seen them in cloth and leather from oem.

      I am not totally sure on the years they were available. Anyone who knows for sure can chime in.

      I don't mean to thread-jack, but it seems like you guys will know the answers for my questions.

      I'm seriously considering fabricating my own shift knob, and wrapping it with leather or suede, but I have no previous knowledge of how to work with interior wrapping, so I need to figure out the details of the wrapping process and materials.

      What do I need to look for in terms of thread for it to be strong enough, and not fade? Are there any other things I need to keep in mind for thread?

      In order to stretch the leather or suede over the shape of the shifter, do I wet it, stitch it, then let it dry? What is the proper process?

      I looked at the 'in process' shot of wrapping the steering wheel, and don't really understand how the join was made smooth. I assumed you would fold the edges over, and then sew them together, but the pictures show it with a fair amount of excess still, despite the stitching beginning. So how exactly do you get a smooth joint?
