I have access to Ostridge and fine aligator material. (high quality vinyl) I'm thinking of removing the door panel that is now the Dark Medium Flint color(charcoal)vinyl to match the leather seats, And covering them with a ostridge or fine aligator vinyl in a charcoal color to give the car a unique look. I just don't know if that would look too getto. There is also a ostridge print vinyl that has a charcoal with a silver metalic wash that would definatly accent the silver trim on the interior.

Am I the only one who recoiled in horror when I saw the phrase "ostrich print vinyl" here?

I'm going to go ahead and say don't upholster your car with vinyl patterned after animals whose names you cannot spell. That's a rule of thumb I live by, and it has served me well.

:hyst:

Animal prints are pretty popular right now. And you see real thing in boots, belts, purses, etc. Why not trim in cars?
Still waiting for those pics.......... :popcorn:

Gotcha! ;) :blush: :whistle:

Seriously, do whatever you like. It's your car and your money, right? If you like it, and it's not hurting anyone else. Why not! :thumb: Disregard the earlier remark, I was just trolling Dasha through your thread... :angel:

Unfortunately the color that would work in my car is no longer made. Ohh and its fake leather not a picture of the bird on vinyl. It looks pretty cool in the charcoal metallic look. It would have worked great with the silver accents and the dark grey interior.
