thanks! I've thought about those door pulls; touch choice, not sure if i actually want them as door handles; spending $20 on similar porsche pulls on ebay for some seat pulls did the trick just fine for now haha. might do the same for my under seat storage or something up front.

finally did my steering wrap. huge pain in the rear; my airbag simply would not unmount no matter what i did with the clips so had to do my best with the trim on and all that. all in all though didn't actually take all that long, for my first time trying it i'm actually pretty pleased with the result.

now to see if it stands the test of time... fabricwise, stitch wise..
