I have read about a couple of you and others replacing your original vinyl interior with leather parts.

My 99 C2 has the black 'basketball' style vinyl along with the hi-fi stereo option.

It appears that doing the door and rear skins along with pillars wont be a problem, other than finding matching black leather.

I am going to contact Oklahoma Foreign and may actually pay them a visit since they are 'relatively' close and on the way to family.

Besides the really painful dash replacement, any other big issues or concerns?

Thanks!

TC

PS: If anyone has any pieces they are looking to sell, please let me know!

Keep an eye on Ebay. On a regular basis you see interior parts, usually in black as this is the most common color. Sometines you see a whole interior from someone who is stripping the car for the track. Good Luck!

TC, I did an interior swap in my 2000 C2 a few years back. It is very do-able. I even went so far as to install an 02 full leather interior. This provided me with the glove box which I really appreciate. It has been a while but here are some thoughts: 1. my original interior didn't have door speakers. Every leather interior I looked at had the door speakers. This wasn't an issue for me as I wanted to upgrade to the Bose system (that has them) but you should expect that any leather interior you look at will have the door speakers (in case your interior doesn't have them). 2. If you go with an 02 or later dash, you'll need the 02 (or later) dash bracing and vent ducting that provides space for the glove box. 3. I also found and installed full power/supple leather seats to flesh out the interior. I put a post out there a few years back with some detail on the seat upgrade. 4. The leather Porsche uses can get dinged up fairly easily. I really had to look around for an interior that was in great condition. - it is good that you will have a chance to see the interior you are considering prior to purchase. Hope this helps, good luck. GA
