    Yes mate - he's a very good friend of mine. I remember him having the seats upholstered by a bloke who worked at TVR (I think!) :confused:

    It'll go down just fine mate.

    As for my car, the wife made it look the way it does (Yes I do mean she fitted and modified the bodykit and then sprayed the entire car in our garage),

    I used to do 95% of the mechanics, but just recently don't have the time, as work is taking up a LOT of my time, so paid a friend of ours who is an enthusiast, but also has his own garage now, to fit my new tubbies and exhausts etc.

    Everything up untill the seats i think was perfect and like a dream i think the colour of seats n carpet is a slight letdown i personally would go for black leathers with the red carpet or black carpet with red seats or maybe ever black & red seats if it looks to much red
