custom back seat:

the back seats that came with my UK CSL are trimmed like this - scheel panel pattern but all vinyl. the age, wear and known history suggest that it is original.. will be getting them retrimmed in scheel cloth in the middle but it is interesting to see a photo of a similar setup

Anyone else have one of these? It's wired to the fog light circuit, lights up when the fog lights are on.

While I don't love that it is pierced right through the beautiful wood veneer, I think it is a great idea. A more contemporary car would have a symbol on the dash that illuminates when the fogs are on. Good stuff.

I remember seeing something like this when trailer hitches were used on E9’s. The position was more central, but the purpose seems the same, to know that the t’hitch lights are on.
The fog light is ofcourse lit up by its under dash switch.

I am having a real hard time looking at the vertically oriented wood grain on the dash and doors. To my eye, it completely ruins the intent of this trim. Maybe it should be added to the "Never seen that before" thread. :D

I’ll add the color matched tool tray:
