Lol. She says it's in the mail.

I gave up on disassembling the wood handle. I'm just going to break it. Am sending it to Alan Gun at Custom Leather Steering Wheel Restoration in Florida.

I'm going to use glooss black vinyl wrap on the other trim in the interior.

Still picking up some interior bits and waiting for it to get warm enough to disassemble the interior and install some of this. Just got a leather wrapped cowl. Going to rip oit the stitching and redo it in blue.

Lots of standing to do still. Waiting on more interior bits. Thinking of using the door handles from a Boxster with the silver bar.

Painted a Honda S2000 start button gloss black to match the buttons. I like how it fits in the wiper delay slot.

Changed the bulbs in the cluster to white and started changing out the switches to blue. Soo much better!

Wow, you have done some pretty cool mods already. Where did you get the hand brake handle? I would love to get one as well.

Thanks. I have a number of interior mods going on right now but few are finished. With spring here and the snow melting I need to hurry up.

The e brake is a wooden handle option. I wanted to disassemble it and refinish the handle in black, but I just could NOT get the handle off without breaking it, so I sent it off for someone to do for me. I got the handle off Ebay.

Jim,
Lots of great mods (as others have indicated). However, after reading the thread from the beginning it seems to me the title if 180 out. Let's recap, You are a Mustang guy, SHE found the car, SHE made the list of upgrades, she she she... It seems the title should be "(insert her name) and the helper" or "insert her name and the muscle" or well you get the idea. Just sayin' LOL

Really like the upgraded interior colors the orange is so dated. Do you know the bulb number/part number? How did you do this in the switches?
Thanks
