Default Feeler: Custom Interior Door Cards and Dash

So, I did 2 complete sets of doors and dash, went with more leather than alcantara for the car, and have the other set to possibly sell. I have a ton of money and time invested in them, but know I can't expect too much if anyone wants to buy them. They are not perfect, have some flaws, but they are hard to notice.

Anyway, just throwing it out there to see if anyone might be interested in custom Black leather, black alcantara, blue alcantara and carbon fiber door cars and matching full alcantara dash. Let me know.



This is a shot of the door cards for sale:

the newer cards currently in the car, notice the different stitch line above the speaker. I know, i am picky

The dash is the top dash in the pic...all alcantara, the leather/alcantara one will be in the car.

really nice work, and it begs the question. If I have to ask can I not afford?

Nathan, you know what the dash and cards cost new....so keep that in mind

I am looking for about $1200 to break even. The Carbon Fiber alone ran me about $200 per set.

I am also up for trades plus cash.

I'm glad I can't afford this cuz I'd be all over it and, uh, I can't afford it.

Bump for some sick work.

Seriously unbelievable work. I second the idea of you doing this as a part/full time gig. There are so many "custom" shops out that that just butcher things...we need peeps like you to balance the karma

LOL....there is now way I would want to do this for a living...it would take the fun out of it. Might offer up my services from time to time to help someone out in trade for burgers and drinks .

Thanks Dan, If I knew I was not gonna keep them, I would have either done them in all black, black/charcoal grey, or black/red, that would look awesome in your car.

I still have the other door card to finish, to match the one in the pic, but I already have the pieces cut and stitched, just need to put it all together, about 3 hours work or so. Just not motivated after just having finished the interior that is actually in the car.
