    I don't think there is a "just" black trim for the Coupe. I could be wrong tho.

    Would probably be easier to get a set of cards and retrim them (or get them retrimed) with black alcantara.

    Nice seats tho.

    I think the standard black Texas cloth would be the best bet

    Good idea Rich, I`ll give it a go.

    The rear seats are going up for sale mate, no room for `em

    honestly the door cards are easy - make a template the same size as the material on the card, add an inch around that, cut out the material, coat both surfaces in evo stick contact adhesive (RED TIN), wait 5 mins then stick both surfaces together and push the excess material into the door card - 3 hours work max

    you will need 1500mm x 1500mm of material to cover shag ups (in case) martrim sell it - cost for the black around 100 quid - they will even supply a litre of contact adhesive
