Default Re: What should I do to my car?

it depends how you do it and what material you use...

black leather with red piping would look absolutly awesome and it would go with the car...

it also depends on how good you are at making things with material... (it could end up looking really bad).

the cost is fairly low, probably only a few dollars per meter of fabric if you go to a fabric outlet, and the piping would probably cost the same...

piping it's like a plastic cord that you attach to the edge of something.

it you look at a car seat, you'll sometimes find that on the corner seams, (and sometimes in the middle of the bench seatin the car (there are 2 there)

there are hard plastic round bits that are sewn onto the fabric to stop there being loose ends...

I've tried to find a picture... but I can't!

Just do a system....and get rid of that butt ugly interior...eww.....bright red.

I'd see if I could find an escort with a good interior and just swap interiors.

Don't mess with the performance man.....it'll be a waste of time

Holy crap. If I were you, I would just leave it as it is. Don't bother investing "extra" money into it. You'll probably be spending more money performing the repairs and maintenance on it. If you must do something, get those bumpers and side strips painted to match the red of the car. Then add wheels if you like. Get the windows tinted.

thx for the advice TRD. i do understand your point, although i still would like to do a few things to add a personal touch to it. like root mentioned seat covers, inexpensive and personal. i am going 2 add the arms that raise the hatchback because those are worn out. i would also like to get new bumbers but i don't think i will...too much money.
