    That looks real good man! How much did all that cost you? Where did you get the carpet? What kind of steering wheel is that? Thanks!

    nice job, I am switching my color to grey when I do it though. I am really tired of that tan color.

    Well, it's a Grant steering wheel. I'm not sure of the model number anymore though. Sorry. As far as cost goes let's see... I purchased a complete carpet kit from American Classics for about 275$ The wood to build the side panels was free since I build counter tops for a living. The carpet to cover the side panels was 45$ for 3 yards of material. I think I used about half of it...oops. I purchased it at a local upholstery shop.
    Most of the stereo equipment I already had. The only 2 items I purchased was the new head unit and the PPI amp. I got the Clarion deck for 195$ off of ebay. It is a really nice unit and at about 1/2 the price of retail a good deal in my opinion. The amp I also purchased off ebay. Hold on to your horses here.....150$. To me that's a great deal for a quality 5 channel amp that's only 6 months old. The wiring accessories ran about 75$ Also I purchased a Metra face plate adapter for the din style unit. I recommend this to anyone thinking of putting a din unit in their K5. Nice quality.
    I also replaced all the window felt and door weatherstripping. This was a little pricey. All of it was purchased through LMC.
    I'll post more pics soon. Still working on it daily. I'm also waiting for the rest of my wiring accessories to get here so I can install it first.
    Thanks for the replies,Chris

    Looks great! I, too, am redoing my interior, but I am going to grey tweed. I have a nice tan and polished alm. steering wheel if you are interested. It isn't going to match the grey, so it must go!
