Leather wrapped interior pieces (including dash trim) pics

Just got these back today:




The trim piece was bonded to create a single piece. It was also sanded down so that when wrapped it retains the original dimensions.




Speaker grill had to be cut out and then bonded / siliconed back in place.







The cluster surround was also covered, but I don't have a pic.

Total ran me around $1k at Mark Luhr's custom upholstery in Santee, California for the labor and a full hide.

Love it. It adds so much more of a finished and higher quality look to the interior.

Pricey, too. How's the price of Alcantara compared to leather?

Looks great. Not sure on cost, but you get what you paid for with this sort of work. Kudos!
