Well fella's it easy to do and cost about $12 buck, it won't fall out unless you want it to come out and you can change it very easy.

No glue only scissors and thumbs.

I like those covers around your door speakers. Are those made by Ford?
Nope made by krylon, metallic silver paint. No biggie thou the cost about $5 if I ever want to change back to Black. Same with the door switches.

I couldn't be happier with the Silver Tinsel. It looks like it is a bit thinner than the stuff from YourAutoTrim which I like. If you hold them up next to each other, you can see they are obviously not the same material as the IUP but it's about as close as you can get. When installed on my door, you would be very hard pressed to tell it wasn't the same.

Here's the picture of my door cropped and full size.

What you can't see from the picture is that the welt is not actually a solid color. It is a braided silver tinsel color that has a clear plastic wrap around it. I think it looks super sexy but you may not like it. I don't know if the one from YourAutoTrim is a solid color or not. I will try to take an extreme close up later of the silver tinsel so you can see what I mean but I don't know how well it'll come out.

Looks good. I have it in my car also and I can confrim it is very easy to install and it will stay in place wihtout glue. I had to trim about 1/8" off the back to get a more flush factory looking fit. No big deal though.

The piping is close but not perfect. I never really thought of that when either buying or installing it. I just wanted to break up the darkness of the door. The welt is dull and darker but not overly dark. Yourautotrim will send you samples for $.25 cents each if you call them.
I never noticed the fact that Mr Mikes is smaller.
@stowestang go for it man just post some pics up when you get it finished.
@Aziraphale sorry to steal you thunder here, You door looks great, thanks for posting!!!

No worries, I always like giving people options :-) I agree 100% of why I bought it though, I just wanted to break up the door a bit and I think it looks awesome.

The silver tinsel is definitely more metallic looking than dull. I think that's why I like it.

I ordered the bright red piping for my black (dark charcoal) interior. I think it will make a classy contrast on my door panels.

Thanks for bring this to our attention.

Hey it looks great. I did the same to my doors a while back. I thought it looked ok and everyone that has seen them said they look great. Just don't want to go overboard and have itbeoverwhelming to the rest of the interior

I got the metallic blue from AutoTrim.com for my car. Goes well with the blue/black theme. The only thing was that some of it wouldn't go all the way in for me, so I will have to trim the spine a little bit in a few spots to get a better fit. Did you notice any bubbling at all? (parts that were harder than others to get it in)

Yea, some places in my door allowed the spine to go in deeper than others. When I get a few extra minutes, I'll probably trim the spine back in some places to even it out a bit. Even without that though, it still looks really good.

And I think some of the colors for contrast look really cool (like the red, and yellow and blue) but it just wouldn't have worked on my car since it's all black and silver.

Alright, sorry for the delay but here is the best closeup picture I could get of the welt. You can see how it looks braided. I think it's the sparkly braided quality that makes it match the silver from the IUP parts more than anything.

I really like the look but once you step more than a foot back, you can't tell it's braided anymore. It just ends up looking like this:

I went to my local upholstery shop and they sold me 20 feet for 10.00 cdn, he wanted 20 untill I told him that I can order it for 50cents yard. He did not have the tinsel but i got the satin silver welt to match the outside, it is a 90% match!, I will have to trim a little of the back so not to stick out so much. Wat a great idea! it looks great. I think I might also do the sunvisors as well.
