XE Interior - thoughts please

People...just 'semi' finished the interior of my 'budget' project XE V8 and as you may of seen previously..i created my own white faced dials and extened the white them to the console. Now I think its prolly too much white and will get dirty very easily but it can be easily changed. Plus the Subaru Forester seats with armrests...bargain at $100 the pair..heeh..people you know ayy!

Looks pretty good to me , but I think you're right about the white getting dirty quickly.

I second that reply. in fact it looks great - I would leave it and see how you go - if it doesn't clean up very well after getting dirty, then spray it red (to match the steering wheel/body colour).

Dude, looks great to me. Say, what kind of seats are those? They look like EL XR, but then again they have armrests. Got any exterior shots of the car? Go the mighty XE!

EDIT: Just reread your original post. Forget about the seats. Still would like to see some other piccies.

They are original S-pak door trims..with fairmont door handles. They were in very poor condition when I got them. But now they are good as new with a vacuum and some protectant

And yes they are Subaru Forester seats. The exterior isnt anything special yet. Hornet scoop and removed boot lock, lowered and nice fat wheels.

Re: XE Interior - thoughts please

This already has a 302Clevo in it as standard. I will get some shots when its not raining. I sold my motor and gearbox to guy who need them...and I needed the money...worst thing I EVER did...regretting it now. So this is why im working on a new project, wont be as powerful as the XF but should be fairly tough sounding.
