It has been a lot of work, but its work that I actually enjoy doing! The center console is overlaid with a synthectic leather material that is tooled with texture.
We had a difficult time finding something similar to that in real leather, so we went with what you see. We are going to get rid of the dash cover that is in there now and probably cover the dash with the same type of material. As for the paisley, it is a thick fabric that is used for furniture or curtains and such, it was very simple to install in the car. We used it on the back pillars first because the headliner was in pretty bad shape back there and I did not want to replace the headliner. We continued to bring the fabric to the front of the car to try to even it out. The choice of fabric and where we used it is where we get the most compliments from people when they see the car.
