i doin up my 83 s-10 interior pretty soon. i was thinkin of maybe a dark blue wavy velvet material with some white things in there. not sure what will be white but i think you can get the idea. my trucks actual color will be h.o.k candy cobolt blue, and will be runnin 14" wires. so you think it will look good. sorry fo the long post but i had to make it so you could have a picture of erething in your head to see if it would flow or not.

How much do you pay for suede then?? I can get it fairly cheap
i said ultrasuede first of all.....personally i would never upholster anything in actual suede because it wont last for shit..... ultrasuede is synthetic suede and the cheapest ive come across it has been 45$/yard......and by that i mean actual ultrasuede not that knockoff bullshit people grab up for 25$/yard

toray 10 yr warrantied fabric

you can use a different material, velour. its a bit stronger than velvet. yes there is a difference between the two. velvet tends to fade in the sun quicker. a good idea is use a lighter blue and a dark blue to accent the interior. light blue as your main color and the dark to bring it out. you can add a small detailed pin stripe of light blue on the outside of the truck, even on the bottom half of the truck. you would not believe what a thin line can do for a car/truck in your case. accent is what its all about, making the colors flow, from the inside out.
