Damn!

I wouldn't change one single thing about that car. It's just right.

Great job! How many hours invested?

edit: what would you recommend to clean the Tri-color stitching on the "M" steering wheel?

Wow and that's for a vehicle in pretty good condition to begin with.

Attention to detail like this makes me all hot and bothered.

Good Lord. It must have cost more than the value of the car.
