Door Panel Inserts *Update #2 more pics*

I did my door panels with some red cloth. Let me know whay you all think. heres a few shoots:




Update #1
thanks for all the positive comments guys!
heres some updated pics of the passenger side. i had a few people ask about a DIY write, ill try to write something up and have it up within a week.







Update #2
I finally got my hands on the same material my seats are made out of. Im going to redo the front door panels with the suede material as well everything should be finished tomorrow.

heres an update of the rear panels. i still have to install them back into the car:




Update #3
Finally im finish with the everything. Just got done with the rewrapping everything in red suede. Everything from the driver to passenger include the rear panels is now suede. over all i think everything turned out nice, looks a lot better then i expected. next thing to do on the list is the headliner. I after looking at it first hand did doesnt seem to hard to do. just gotta find some suede that is wide enought to cover everything up.








update #4 10/04

DIY added to Page 2

Looks nice, did you do it yourself? Also, what kind of seats are those? They look real nice.

took me a few hours to do the driver side, i plan on doing the passenger side tomorrow. i was looking at the rear panels and they are cloth too. soon after i will do those when i have time.

i dont really know what the material is, its almost like woven cotton. i trying to find some alcantara fabric, same material my seats are made out off. if anybody knows where to get some in red please let me know.

yea those are SI seats.

im in search of a DC5R steering wheel if anybody know where to get one that would really finish my interior. i had a SI steering wheel but the airbag was dual stage and my car is single stage. thanks for all the positive comments

Did you have to do any stitching, or did you just wrap the OEM panel with fabric and use staples and/or glue to make it stay?

One last question (sorry for so many) how was it getting the Si seats to fit? I have a Red coupe, and I would love a black interior... seams (get it?) like those seats would be a nice start.

did you do it by removing the door panel insert? If so is removing the door panel insert relatively simple? Reason why Im asking is im planning to install custom leather onto my cloth door panle inserts.

Removing the door panel is simple. It is just 2-3 screws and a bunch of clips. I took it off a few years ago for a speaker install, I didn't have any trouble. The only tricky part is uninstalling/reinstalling the door lock latch behind the door handle, but once you see it you will figure it out in a minute or two.

yea removing the door panel is pretty simple like jaegray said, theres only 2 screws and 7-9 clips that pops in and out. the trick to remove the door latch is to move the entire piece towards the front of the car to. doing this will unhock the latch from the door, allowing you to move the latch between the hole. ill take some pictures tomorrow when i do the passenger side

Looks great, I'm thinking about getting some black cloth for mine since the stock cloth is almost completely faded away.

looks good. I did the same thing to my car but with black microfiber suede material...Im currently covering all my pillars,dash,and headliner in the suede. I also just recieved 1 of 2 of my sparco seats to finish my interior off...

I have a Q for you though. Did you do the center arm rest youself? Thats the only area ive had trouble. Only reason I ask is because it is stitched...you do the stitching??

SI seats took me any my friend about 5 hours to get in. but after all that troube the results speaks for itself.

i was going to use the microfiber suede but i wanted something that stands out. the center arm rest and shift boot is made out of mircofiber but i had somebody make those for me. i installed it myself. the installation wasnt perfect but it looks good ne ways. i thought about doing the headliner too but havent decide yet. seems like alot of work removing it and all, but who know.

looks clean.

I would like to see black cloth (with red stitching) for the arm rests think it would flow better.
