    I've read just about every thread in PC and google and still see no consensus on the best color for the Bisque cloth interior, so perhaps you guys and gals can help me choose. Hopefully, those that have actually seen the colors in person will vote.

    I'm particularly concerned about contrast/compliment to the tannish seat belts, tannish plastic under the seat (ie levers & seat-base) and dash which is black upper and tan below.

    NOTE I HATE THE TWO-TONED. They are not an option. :p

    These are the 3 choices:

    Clazzio Ivory- entire seat - custom, not returnable
    Clazzio Beige - entire seat
    GT Covers Red - entire seat while I think this would look sharp with the Blizzard Pearl exterior, I don't know how it would with the tan plastic and light door panels. custom, not returnable


    Thanks everyone!

    I've always thought people should go for more exotic colors such as burgundy, blue, etc. when doing aftermarket leather/seat covers.

    I'd do red, but make sure it's more of a burgundy red rather than bright red. In fact, why don't you get burgundy instead?

    I would probably go with the red and hope it didn't clash with the rest of the interior, I don't think it would.

    I have never owned a blizzard pearl car but I have had white cars with beige and red interiors, I preferred the red.

    I would love burgundy or a rich caramel color, but can't find them under $500 with my own labor to install. this red is a brighter red. My brother actually owns a white car (BMW convertible) with red leather inside and it's beautiful, but Idon't remember the rest of it- probably black. I don't really want to be a copycat, but oh well, I've copied him all my life

    I went to the clazzio warehouse and tried different colors.

    Ivory over beige for sure. Don't know about the red.

    Have you considered either light or dark gray? I chose dark gray and am very satisfied. full report here:

    Maybe some day I'll get around to putting up pictures.

    I've had 2 white cars with red interiors, and LOVED THEM!! You can easily do door inserts in the same color

    You think that's necessary? It would still leave a lot of tan plastic and carpeting


    I like this brown on the landrover

    I like the red too,but my concern is all the tan- door panels, which I know I could cover, but seats belts, carpet and all plastic are tan. Every image I can find except that one I posted has a black interior to go with the red. I'm thinking there must be a reason..
    I don't want to look tacky and gross.

    Tan door panels are fine. You posted a picture of it above...?

    All tan with just red seats looks good, as evident in the photo you posted. In fact, I wouldn't do door panels unless the interior is dark gray.

    So I didn't like the red offered by gt. And custom wasn't an option due to cost. I went with beige clazzio leather from TRD. So far I've only put the front ones on. I'm hoping to get to the back tomorrow. I'll post pics when I'm done. The beige looks good.

    TRD has excellent customer support.

    Okay...cautiously, if those are your choices, go with red...

    But make sure it is a darker burgundy red. Anything brighter? You end up with the interior of the Campy Batman,- Batmobile.

    A dark red can look classy...a bright red...comic book. It's a fine line.

    I chose beige for that very reason, but not so well articulated as you :)

    I'm uploading pics for future buyers who want to see how the beige clazzio leather type looks in the bisque interior.

    The install wasn't too bad. The only thing that I haven't finished is remounting the rear bench. It's just sitting on the latches until someone can help me. It was actually really easy to unhook it and was very light. I thought it might take 2 people to carry it, but I was able to do it myself.

    I tried my best to put the side wings on but can't do it, so they aren't on. I was able to remove the side wings- there's a bolt that becomes visible when you remove the bench seat, but once I put the clazzio on, I couldn't get all the materials to squeeze back into the original space.

    The middle rear seat belt has to be unbolted. Use the bolt that attaches to the frame (I'll call it piece 1), not the other one that attaches the seat belt to piece 1. I had to work at it a bit, but used a standard rachet set.

    It's pretty straight forward. Perhaps the grey or ivory might match better, but I couldn't wait 10 weeks to get it. Too impatient! :) :cheer2:

    My dog already got muddy paw prints on them, so I'm happy! I'm going to see about ordering pieces to do the door panels and redo the front console cover one day soon.

    oh one more thing, guys, it helps if you clip you nails before you go tugging and pulling at the covers, as I found out unexpectedly. :cool:
