    Anyone here with the saddle interior order one of these? I recieved mine the other day and their saddle color is way darker than my interior. I'm thinking their camel or tan color will be a better match. They are working with me to get the right color but I just wanted to see what others have done so I get the right one this time and can get rid of this crappy cover the PO put on it.

    I also ordered th door panel covers and I"ll probably go see how much it might cost to have a shop install them so the fit better than what is shown on there site. I got them black with the black stiching and they look pretty good color wise with the rest of the interior. Kinda hard to mess up black though lol. I had the steering wheel done with black stiching and I like the way that will look, just need the correct or a closer color to the factory saddle.

    Thanks!

    I think I was the first here to use them and always been happy. Only way to be sure on colors would be to order a color sample from them which I did to match the green I wanted.

    Sample color would have been the way to go.

    I don't think anyone has a tan steering wheel here. most people swap out the peanut butter interior...

    Show use how the door panels work. I want them, but the picture looks terrible!

    Ya I know I should have got a sample but I barely got my order in during the Christmas sale. I was hoping it would work out.

    Will do on the door panel covers. Hopefully I can find someone willing to install them

    I have their black and tan shift boot, ebrake and armrest cover and it matched really good IMO but I believe the color was camel. It has been over 10 years since I purchased so I really don't remember. My interior is empty or I would snap some pics. I doubt I have my invoice in my email still but I will check.

    No I checked my photo bucket to see but none. I probably had a few on my old computer but that took a dump.

    The arm rest is a nice fit. He puts elastic on the back. I took the back cover off and threw the screws through a couple of spots to keep it from slipping but its held up nicely.

    here's my redline goods armrest cover...imo the fitment was terrible lol. i had to flip the pad over and pull the cover tight while stapling it to the pad/lid. end result was super nice though and the leather smells delicious

    Dude [MENTION=17070]Tony[/MENTION] your interior looks brand new! What Steering Wheel cover is that? I think one of Redlines 10th Anniversary Cobra(Has the thumb knobs) wraps would look right at home. :D Still looks badass without though so dont get it twisted.

    Mine was pretty good but like these guys said it works best if you permanantly install so it fits tight and doesn't move.

    That isn't that bad at all considering a used FR500 will run you $400+ if you can find one.

    I have been wanting to have my old stock one done like my FR500 but with the thumb grips like on the Cobra wheels.
