Lolol its not pink pleather (that actually sounds gross and uncomfortable). The fabric I used is satin.. with additional bolsters on the driver side cuz I slide around in the "wide american stock STi seats"(compared to JDM seats, but i dont like the JDM seat's crotch region cuz I like to wear skirts/dresses) Lol

But thanks for the comments!

Sewing machine. lol.. yeah, didn't notice the fabric I was sewing had pulled my finger under, and then I noticed my hand was going up and down with the machine, so I stopped.. thought it only got caught on the thread itself, so I tried pulling my finger sideways. Then I noticed it was actually through my nail. My brother had to come rescue me using a screwdriver to release the sewing machine needle.. went to the hospital with the needle and a piece of thread still through my finger. it was more comical than painful.

I put additional padding on top of the stock bolsters, and hand sewn them in.. I left the passenger side without additional bolsters because I have lot of friends with.. "wide hips".. The sewing machine culprit is in the pic.. the light blue thing above the seat.

I just PlastiDipped my whole center console, vents and HVAC controls. Cost me $10 and 90 mins of my time. It came out really well, considering that I have never done it before. Best part, if you mess up with platidip, you can just pull it right off!

Preface: One can appreciate the amount of work that went into this.

That being said, dear god, why??

That interior could cause epileptic seizures. I'm not usually one to hate on things, but I'd guarantee if it weren't a woman that posted this, there would be 30 pages of flaming going on.

Mine is white currently but I am having tattoo artist I met do a custom job for me with airbrush. He does amazing work so I think I'll have him cook up a nice gun theme or maybe so cal style graffitti instead. Cant Wait!

Get a flat head and put a sock on it (to avoid scraping the plastic), pop them out by going slowly around the ring applying slight prying pressure
