Default Welts detail/enhance your car's interior...

for only $20. Below are some PICS taken after I recently installed some "electric blue" welts in the interior of my Cruiser to further "brighten" it's slate grey interior.






I am pleased with the final results. I had hoped to do something using welts on the inside of the doors but nothing seemed to work out or look right. Although it took me a of couple hours and more (some experimenting time required for this novice) to do the job, I will be able to remove the welting in less than 10 minutes should I decide, at some point, I'm not happy with "the look". However for now I think it's a "keeper"! [^]
I found a place in Florida that sells interior trim and leather kits/pieces with some good "how to install instructions with photos" on its website: www.mrmikes.com If you are considering doing some interior MODS to your Cruiser you might want to check this site out as they now make stuff especially for the PT Cruiser. The nice thing about it is that you can do most of the work yourself without having to pay a custom auto-trim shop "big bucks". [8D]

Gary, the car looks great. Tell me the truth-do you really
drive it? Thanks for the heads-up on the site. H.

Looks great. I too have done the same to my Steel Blue. Adds a little "flair" I think.

Herschel, thanks and YES I do drive the car about 8K miles/year. [8)] I keep it looking good by using turbomangt's fine line of car-care products: http://www.perfectautofinish.com/

After almost two years and much work I think it's about done: http://www.ptcruiserclub.org/galleri...2/gallery1.htm

I can put you in touch with someone who can probably get you any color you want. We got colors that matched my Steel Blue and my wife's Seamist.
