John, what do you do for the carpet channel that goes along the lower door jamb area on top of some of those convertible only support panels? :-k

Anyone good at photo shop out there? I wonder what a lowered Arctic Blue vert, with my space savers, euro bumpers with a navy blue top boot would look like? Any help would be really appreciated.

Pix of the space savers are in the JJ/Creig/Tom vert thread? I would do this but I have no clue about photoshop and have never used it. The stayfast would be the same color as the trunk interior blue in this pic.

Anthracite pan, ivory steering column and wheel, seat frames, ebrake, gray headliner, Salt/pepper or blue like the pic square weave including floor matts, 56/57 panels like the pic.

Old school Hurst shifter

Seat color? contrast color (like red) or matching color :-k :-k :-k

That Porsche graphite metallic you considered would be my overwhelming choice

All great choices above but that graphite color is wicked.

Man, you gotta make some decisions soon there buddy, it won't be long now
