Customizing the Inside

So I went to a shop down here in FL and i decided im gonna customize the inside of the truck. Heres what i got so far
-Custom fiberglass dash
-new carpeting
-custom fiberglass headliner with built in speakers
-fiberglass replacing the woodgrain on doors
-fiberglass A-Pillar (front and back) and gauge pod

And I got some questions, I assume you can stain gaurd the carpet?
What are some good manus. for custom seats for the Super Duty, besides Katzskin, anyone have any pictures of custom fiberglass dashs for ideas?

hehe, the stock market was real bad and a lot of people sold good stock for cheap, and last friday the market did pretty good with new owners on some good stock.

Im thinking like a dark blue, midnight blue fiberglass head liner working its way down the a-pillars (front and rear) and gauge pods, down to the top, middleish dash then fading out to a black so it ties into a new black carpet. Also redoin the leather seats with black wrap, and a dark blue insert down the middle, maybe suede I dunno about keeping that clean, and double stitch with corresponding color. rewrapping the steering wheel, and whatever else I can cook up. Id like to make the headliner and back a pillars all one piece and cutting speakers into them and putting speakers tilted in the headliner towards the front and some little tweeters down the pillars. Im not sure if I want to reverse the center console color or leave it the same as the seats etc.

Yea they qouted me an actually decent price, and the work they do is outstanding. They cut me a deal on the carpet since the seats will be out already and it will be easier for them to do it instead of just the carpet alone. He said the hardest part to do is gonna be the dash depending on how I want it to flow and gauge location etc. So Ill be going back tomorrow to sit down and talk about all the locations, ill prob just leave them as is

Yea, im gonna wait for a while though(6 months-a year) and let everyone test out these new products on their trucks. Don't wanna invest this money in the interior and have something happen to the motor right now on a new product.
