Steering wheel and Doors are almost done. Jeff's daughter is going to college in the UP, and he has been pretty tired up. I will post many high resolution photos when I get the interior totally done!

Also, I sold my Y wheels to Yoram. I really liked the design, but never really loved the fitment. My LSS wheels are much better and the tread pattern on the A048's are sooooo cool .

Doors are being finished up and my steering wheel will be in the works next. I have also ordered a unikey which I am very excited about. I have thought about having Jeff wrap my seats similar to the ones pictured, but the jury is still out.

Thanks Ross!

The Unikey is made by a guy in the used parts section. His name is Terry. I get it on Sat!

Super excited! I will post pick soon.

Thanks,

ZW

Just got a used Weapon R header and decat from a LT member. Will be putting that one soon. Also, my headliner is starting to fall down. I am thinking of doing Black micro suede with a red stitch More to come on that!

New Mods that are in the works....

1. Re-doing roof headliner in Black Alcantara
2. Weapon R Header and Decat
3. Replacing Interior trim panel (Radio/center vent part)
4. Bought another Unikey by Fabrication. (Now I have a set to replace both keys)
5. Bought 4 nicer center caps (all 4 of mine were slightly different colors as seen in 05-06 vehicles)
6. Replacing Interior light/license plate bulbs with LED's
7. Painting brake calipers steel grey to clean them up

Picks to come!

Cheers,
ZW

Add some interior light while you are at it!

I can see inside the Elise at night now! Much needed lighting!
