Some of the NEPOC/RX-8 crew had a mini meet last night for a full interior swap. Marc (Zelse) owns a black RX-8 with the tan/black leather interior. His plans are for aftermarket seats in the future. So he swapped for cloth seats which also means all door panels and steering wheel had to be removed.

Marc, James, Oleg and I met up with Scott (SmokeHonda) and his bro Tony (G35 owner). Was a long night of comedy to say the least. Who's to say you can't have good fun in cold weather? I'll let the others chime in on juicy details so for now you can ponder on the photos. Vids will be up soon.

lol Yeah good pics. Too bad it was too dark out to really take more, but it happens. We'll take more pics of the final product at some point. Especially when my car is washed too. Looks like ass right now. :( Thanks for the help guys. :) Good times.

Hmmm... My interior is so comfy that I snuggle it at red lights. :) I think the cloth is a million times better, and the color is perfect so when I get these ...

it'll look awesome I think. And of course a harness and all...but that'll be a bit down the road. We'll see.. Maybe my new job will be better in pay :p

so how'd it go?

Eh, you know. A lot of nuts, bolts, screws, and those damn door clips that like to stick in the doors and not the panel when you take them off. We had a one car garage to work out of while the other car was in almost complete darkness other than flashlights. We made do obviously, and then as you can see in the vid Marc moved his car in to button that up. It's an easy job, just time consuming.

where was this??? i woulda gone!
Quincy, MA at Marc's friends condo.

wow total swap, very cool! looks good! after having black leather in my 6 I am glad that my speed3 seats are not completely leather. So hot and I feel you slide around more on it.

Good job!
