    Wow, I've been looking for a sunglasses holder for my model 3 today, and saw your previous thread, and now this...I think I need to buy all the things from you...

    If there's a list, please sign me up for both things!

    These have an adhesive back which you peel off and stick just like the vinyl products. The Faux-rinthian leather is very workable and should suit this purpose well. The Tesuede is from a local fabric shop. It does not stretch well and the fibers tend to shed. I'll need to burnish the edges and figure a better way to install. Can't do much now. I am still enjoying the rich soft Faux-rinthian in my car. Besides, the kids have enough on their plate at the moment.

    @GDN, don't laugh at me.
    I got bored yesterday and installed the Uber-Suede. What do you guys think?

    I generally like the suede. Wish our headliner matched!

    Do the panels operate properly with this material installed? It looks a bit "thick".

    The suede looks nice as well! Are you planning on releasing along with your other items as well?
