Re: Alcantara madness!!!

AWESOME STUFF MAN! I love it, hope to do something similar once spring breaks

I have the 3M Dinoc and tons of Neffy in both colors laying around as Ive meant to get to this for months haha but you know how that goes

Not to sure where to look for a good Alcantara type of material or if there is some comparable suede type of stuff I could use. Either way I have the grey interior theme so Im thinking of sticking with the light/dark grey shades and not black since that kinda ruins it. Again, nice work, love what you've done.

You're in the states, so go into any fabric store and ask for Micro-fiber or Suede Micro-fiber(They're the same, just some might not know unless you add the suede part). Should even be on sale. *Hint, the fabric I'm speaking of will usually be in the upholstery section, but not always.

...And Alcantara is Suede Micro-fiber, just so you know.

Thanks man! It's fairly easy to work with once you get the hang of it. I think I'm right in saying that micro fibre suede is more resistent to fading than natural suede.

My interior is a kind of dark charcoal colour, but black would never work either, so I went with a dark grey.

Thanks again!

Ahh thanks, thats good info, that's what ill do then. I honestly thought alcantara may have been some rare luxurious lambo only type of material but thinking of it, if it looks like suede and it smells like suede, its probably suede haha . . . well you catch my drift haha. Thanks again! Rep+

Re: Alcantara madness!!!

Wow. Thanks for the rep! One of the things I can't wait to do when I get back to the U.S. is start my youtube vid series on mods. I've peaked over the shoulders of some of the greats in the custom world, from hot-rodders to 4X4 crawlers to import tuners and everything in between. I've assisted in the build of quite a few cars that have been on the covers of magazines even. I'd do it here if I had access to even the simplest materials and tools, but that's not going to happen.

Ahhhh then you are in the wrong place my brother, you need to get your arse to a shop or somewhere with some tools and some automotive customization resources haha. Sounds to me like you're off in left field when you belong on the pitchers mound G/L with the youtube vids though haha

Re: Alcantara madness!!!

Oh, your not kidding! I'm a big believer in D.I.Y. unless you can't do it. That side of me is dying a slow, agonizing death here in Korea. It is the exact opposite. NO ONE does anything for themselves here. If you have a bad plug, you call an electrician. A leak, you call a plumber. But it gets worse. I swear I've seen people call a handyman to tighten a loose screw! No joke! My first year here, back in 2007, I noticed a broken hinge on a cupboard door. The next day, I brought a screwdriver and slightly bigger screw and fixed it during the break. You should have seen the look of awe on the ladies faces (it was in the teachers tea room). Each one of them in turn thanked me with homemade Korean food all week.

Modding cars is big here, but even then, if you want anything done, you take it to a garage. I can't even buy a shifter boot for my car to replace the worn-through one I have now. I'd have to take it to a "Car Beauty" garage and pay for them to install it. I can't stand that side of Korea.

Wow, thats horrible! Nothing against Korea or Koreans, cause Ive never been and I have no reason to dislike any of them, but Id hate that and I dislike that fact. I personally, just couldn't do it, I'd have to move in a heartbeat unless I was forced to for some reason. I dont know your situation obviously, but I assume its work related and I know job and financial security and all that good stuff comes first. BUT, If thats not the case though, I hope you book yourself a one-way ticket to the good ole US of A asap and get back to the land of DIY haha, sounds like you really could use it. People really dont realize how cultures and the way of life can affect ones mental, emotional and even spiritual mood and tone. You really would be surprised, so Im thankful for the rights and freedoms we have here in the US, not to take away from Korea, I just think the market and their entire economy isnt structured in a way that I could be as creative or resourceful and do the certain things I do with cars and my toys today Then again coming up over there, I probably wouldn't be into hardly much of what I am haha so goes to show, life is based on upbringing and location is the main factor in that game

That whole DIY and handyman, tinker around in the shop typa thing is definitely a personality type and Id venture to guess its most commonly found in the US and/or Eastern Hemisphere. I just feel like the Western Civilization is more of the have it done by a professional and do not get involved with things not of your profession. Almost like they have less hobbies and/or interests outside of work and whatever their main thing is. Again this is all speculation based on some of the Korean friends Ive had in the past.

Anyway GL again, hope you can get the creative juice flowing and keep from driving yourself insane over there. Hey worst comes to worst, you just keep modding those Vans or whatever that thing was you posted earlier lol, should get you through until you can get your hands back on the good stuff

Re: Alcantara madness!!!

Sorry, I should have clarified. This is one small aspect of life in Korea I don't enjoy, but you would be mistaken to think I hate it here. Despite certain drawbacks, I very much like it here. Every once in a great while I run smack dab into some huge culture clash, but I get around it. Yeah I want to come back to the USA, but for what? What jobs? Forced healthcare plans? Over-regulation strangling the small business infrastructure? Not to mention I have a foreign wife and stepson. Do you have any idea how outrageously difficult and expensive their visas are? Needlessly so.

Be mindful of your supposed rights and freedoms, more and more disappear every day Obama is in office. Korea isn't even my home country, and I barely have any rights or priviledges, but it's still infinitely easier for me to start a small business here than back home. I hear people talk a lot about the USA's freedoms and rights. The ignorance of what is really going on is staggering. My view from outside the country is far less subjective, trust me.

No you're certainly spot on. I thinks its more of a mind-state what Im referring to. Not to say there is one right or wrong way thats the great thing about life, no one cant control our mind-state per say, although they can factor into it haha. I hear you ,glad you like where you are then. Too bad you can quite partake in a hobby or yours but hey opportunity cost I guess. G/L with everything over seas, hopefully America and Obama or whoever the hell is in charge can get this big horse turned back around. We were headed there once and seems like we've gone off track. Someone just needs to grab the reigns and set her straight. Only time will tell but I have faith, no worries day to day though as I control my destiny for the large part and am pretty happy with where I am at and where I think the country is going haha. See you around the garage!
