Hi folks

As we already have a thread/sticky which contains various pictures of external colour options that
folks have used on their TVRs in the past, I thought it would be useful to have a similar thread
which records interesting, different or unique interior colours and/or trimming options that people
have used as well.

The intention would be to provide examples of trimming work that others could refer to in the future
to see what options might be available to them.

So, to start the ball rolling, here are a few that I have collected over the years...





























































...and yes, not all of them are from Sags, T350s or Tams biggrin

Its called a Momo-Trek R and is quite a popular replacement to the Personal steering wheels that came with the original cars in both
Tuscans, T350s and Sags.

It was also used as the replacement to the Personal in the TVR Sagaris Mk2 that never was.

From experience of using both, its a heck of a lot better than the standard one.

Each to their own. It just looks a bit Max Power to me.

Loving the black quilted trim - looks amazing. With regards to the curved pedals - any idea where they came from? Were they a late factory upgrade?

Not a fan at all of the carbon or plasticky centre consoles/dashes etc, much prefer the leather and I think the shiny platic or carbon looks awful against the leather.

Hi Tony

The black quilting came from the Tagaris photos I posted a while back. It was trimmed by Dave the Trimmer in MK.

The driver's well stripping are pictures from Jason's latest completion of the last test effort built by TVR Austria before they packed it all in. Not sure you did it, but I'm looking into a costing of the effect now. To get the effect without removing anymore carpet from the well is cheap, less than 100 quid, but to ge the full affect you need to remove and repattern some of the carpet at the front. That is what I'm looking at costin up now.

Added: curved pedals are from the typhoon/t400 I believe. You could probably get some made up if you can use an example as a template.

Cheers

Seen this kind of finish on BMs and Mercs and it looks good aswell as looking hard wearing. Doesn't look too good over inward curves like the door cards imo, but I fancy this finish in mine in the footwell and maybe the seat centres....

Hi Alex,

I'm at work at present and my phone is a PITA to reply from but as long as they're at least as comfy to use as the standard pedals then I'll have a set.

Like religion or politics, I regard these all as completely subjective. Some people will hate them, some people will love them.

The point of this thread was to show various options that could be done. I'm not intending to offer a critique on what people like or not as we all have our own tastes - including me biggrin
