I also give a thumbs up to Prestige. One of the things I liked about them was the ability to totally customize my design. They worked with me to get exactly what I wanted in color and materials. I did a total interior, new soft top and tonneau cover.

You can purchase an nice hide for between $200 and $300 and make all of the panels yourself, vs paying $1000... Seats are a different story of course, but you can still un-stitch the original covers, trace them out on the leather, then have your local upholsterer sew them up. Once again saving a bunch of cash. It just depends on how much labor you want to do yourself.

I purchased the center console leather cover from Mirror Trim (they normally sell the entire console already covered but will sell the cover independently if asked to do so) and installed it myself as well. I also covered the additional gauge holder and the new style map holder (not shown here).

Take this advise from a guy who did all of his own interior in leather (minus the seats because they are 2008 Miata leather but I did my Harley seat just two weeks ago). I even did my headliner in leather...

Let me know if you decide to take this on. I have a very good source for nice leather at reasonable prices. Not one of the larger retailers who will want $500 or more for the same quality hide...

I used Mirror Trim for my door cards, carpets etc all except the seats. They were expensive , the packaging was terrible for a trip to AUS, some bits were even falling out and appearance just fair with several faults mainly in the carpet edging. I had the seats done by a small local show and to me they make the rest look cheap. The end result looks OK but I was a bit disappointed. Denis
