two-tone (heated) leather interior was done through dealer in St. Louis. Those are "Katskins" brand interior. dealer also had someone do the power moonroof for me.
I added the TRO anto-sway and torsion - wish i had done the exhaust. haven't figured out what to do for wheels (or how to pay for them)

Yeah love the seat covers. If I didn't already have a custom interior I would have done something like that.
For wheels check out wheelsnext.com They should at least get you some ideas of something you like. Plus they have decent pricing.

How are you liking the moon roof? I really wanted one, but didn't want the RS Gold Rush color. Yours is much bigger, too, than what I've seen on the release series xBs. I might have to look for a quality shop around here to see what they can do.

Thanks.

So, I'm not the only one that thinks the xB interior looks like a 1940s/50s delivery truck . . . :lol:

I'm thinking of making my truck look like a "Streamlined" Railway Express Agency/REA X truck.
Probably one with a "special" silver paint scheme to reflect a "lightweight" body . . .

I now want to find large vinyl or magnetic REA or REA Express logos . . .

(Ironically, WHILE TYPING this . . . the UPS guy came. When REA shut down, UPS bought most of the REA trucks and some of the other stuff. I talked to him and HIS truck was built in the early 1970s and was originally a green . . . it WAS an REA truck! :eek: Funny . . . :D)

Moonroof done through the dealer (Ackerman in St. Louis) Don't know who actually did the work - Salesman said they order Camry roofs (maybe - - - maybe not) in any event I enjoy the light and the air, it has multi-settings, tilt-out, or open (completely) in. Loosing an inch or two of headroom certainly wasn't an issue.

so how much did the package cost you and did you do it yourself? If not, how much did it cost to install? Did the seat covers slide right over the stock ones?

I didn't do it myself -

got a package deal on heated seats with new upholstery- dealer sent it to a shop in St. Louis - they ripped the old covers off, installed heat, then the leather - leather comes from "Katskins" - I got them to do the door inserts while they were at it - I think the package, heat/ leather seats/ door inserts was $1400. (I think...I'd have to look back to confirm)

I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. Dog Odysseus rides in there with me all the time, and the white hasn't been TOO hard to maintain, I wipe it clean and that's about it., I've had it 8 months so it's due a good cleaning.
