Talking New clothing for The Bull (Scorpio)

The Bull got a set of new clothing for itself yesterday. Matching the body colour, the 'pants & shirts' too are black but with a silver lining.

Before you all paste me, this is Leatherite from Microline with 100% PU costing me a cool 9.3K.

You are right Cyrus. Since they don't come in the regular set, stitching orders have been placed.

Nice looking covers, love the scorpio logo on the seats. only thing missing is door panels and dash need the same treatment [black color], than the job will be complete.

looks lovely gd!
actually a good upholsterer can add a lot of value by cladding the dashboard and door panels etc in matching livery
apart from looking cool, this will also save the original surfaces from scratches and tears!
cheers

Somehow that silver beading doesn't cut it. The rest looks good.

Looks cool gd! I noticed you have armrests on the front seats. Are these custom made?

Guruji! Nicely done.
Now, behenji will be in more comforts.

How much was the total costs involved?

Thanks Dinar, door panel under process. Somehow having the same thin on dash doesn't appeal to me. But am open to ideas.

I actually had no control over the silver beading. My upholsterer, whom I explicitly trust, did these covers without even asking me. He just called me this Sunday evening to come to his shop with the car and i simply drove there.

Looks great Guruji. Black/grey interiors look best IMO. Why not get the door pads covered as well?
And yes, behenji will surely appreciate the new clothes.

Can these armrests be retrofitted on the front seats of a Scorpio that does not have them? I believe the older models didn't.
