looks good, but you need to get a black instument cluster bezel from a 90-93 car for it now. The stock dark gray 87-89 version just doesnt look right.

i know ive got two cluster bezels here that are black but neither have the spot for the warning lights in the lower right hand corner like mine in the 89 does. i might get the dye from 50resto.com and dye it black you cant really tell it that bad in person, flash from camera shows it well. but is getting changed along with the rest of the interior.

Thats because 89 was the last year for those idiot lights in that position. You have gauges in the cluster, wtf you need lights for?

Just an FYI also the Sail panels for 90-93 have the seat belt holes in different locations so you will need to drill holes for them in the correct spot on the sail panel, the rear seat cushion attaches differently than the 87-89 cars and will require some work to get it right, the HVAC controls are also different, as it the dome light (if you get a 93 headliner).

i dont even pay attention to the idiot lights they never come on anyway and i watch my gauges. so ill probably go ahead and switch one of the ones that are black here out with mine. solves that issue. I have the rear seats out of the car im going to be installing a rear seat delete kit. ill prob. have my headliner redone to black.

id say if you want to make it look one of, paint some of the other trim pieces black so you have a tan/black interior, i think it would look good.
