I finally did it... put black leather with red stitching in my Accord
I'll probably put better pictures up on the weekend, $1500+tax at South Side Trim just south of DFW airport. Not sure how I feel yet... looks a little off since the console is tan...

black and tan works.

nice installs, fellas.

i had a conversation with a Katskin dealer while drinking in a hotel bar. he travels around setting up dealerships with installers to offer customers more options.

he was quoting $800 for full leather upgrade in a sedan. then adding heated and cooled seats was another $700.

i figured that i would wait to see how the cloth held up and upgrade when/if i feel it is wearing.

my custom interior piece is related to the dash
i added a fuse block and distribution behind the dash


i removed the lower pocket and modified it to mount an aftermarket HU






i still have more sanding and painting left.

i also modded the factory pocket cover and will add magnets to let it act as a aftermarket HU cover so prying eyes won't see what's up.

Nice work. One thought though - the newly added fuse box seems to be located where it will be extraordinarily hard to actually replace a fuse, but maybe it just appears this way in the photo. Looks like you have to remove the entire lower trim piece just to replace a fuse.

yes, you remove the lower trim/console - which requires pulling the radio out slightly. probably 90 seconds of work, so not a huge deal IMO.

if a fuse pops, that means i have problem that will require inspection of the wiring anyway. connections are soldered. wiring is loomed. wiring protection is as close to stock as possible.

alternate locations for consideration are under the driver's side dash. i considered that as well but this keeps the wiring in one location.

of note also, the fuse box is powered from the battery directly. i only tap the HU 12V ignition wire to power a relay coil. the relay switches the battery constant i ran separate. so everything there is electrically separate from the car's wiring and no load is added to the factory wiring.

I been wanting to add a aftermarket headunit like yours, even tho I prefer a double din. I wouldn't mind a single din flip out monitor tho. How do you go about adding another head unit? Just splice into the factory harness?

Ugh that katzkin looks so good. Anyone know how it holds up to dogs? I'd love to just wipe clean. My stupid 60 dollar Bench seat cover doesn't do it.

Awesome custom work on the head unit and all, but wow does it look busy in the middle lol. There's like 4 tiers of stuff! One day Honda needs to have a look inside a Lexus gs350, etc and get a hint. Not much we can do obviously, but just my opinion.

yea, there is a lot of stuff going on.

i made a cover out of the factory pocket door that is held with neo magnets. the cover fits even with the HU faceplate on.


and the illumination matches well - the Alpine is blue with white text on the BioLite display.

So how does it really work? I thought you would use the aftermarket unit but I see in the second pic you got a flash drive in the USB. Can you use both head units?

I think he uses the stock USB for the Alpines rear USB input.

Also, you read my mind on using the stock door for a cover of the Alpine deck. Reminds me of the 90s when people would recess mount the aftermarket deck and then cut the face off the stock deck and use it as a decoy cover while parked.

You mean like this? (see pics). Me and my Katzkin dealer went through all the samples he had and did our best to match the Katzkin leather stitching to the factory "leather" armrest and doors.

It was important to me that the installation look like it came right from the factory.

You be the judge.....


black katzkin leathers with grey stitching. Doors and armrest left "factory"

I'm thinking of getting a dark color with red stitching
Do all dealers or most dealers do the Katzkin seats or is it only specific ones?
I'm curious what leather scheme will look good with the Metallic gray car that currently has the gray cloth seats?

Leaning towards this:

Style:Combo
Wrap Color:Factory Match BLACK
Accent Color:Barracuda Charcoal (square perforated leather)
Options:Stitching: Red

I think most dealers contract it out if they offer it at all. I'm sure there are some interior shops that install Katzkin in your area. I'd look on Yelp or Google to see if you can find some and then email around for quotes.

Looks better than factory. But I guess that's the point.
