    How 'bout this? The yellow break contrast is appealing, kinda like it on the diagonal, too... from Pattern Crew. Inexplicably called "GMC V6 Scotch Tartan Plaid Valve Cover"

    Lol at that name. Too funny. As always, you're on point, Russ—I'm just not bold enough to do red on red. Have thought about a light blue tartan with the red, but I think GT3 Touring corduroy between perforated leather bolsters (911S style) is the likely case when it comes time to redo the Scheels. But that's a ways off...having too much fun driving the thing right now!

    And yet another nice 914 posted above. Looks great. Love the silver simplicity.

    Photos never really do this color justice. It looks much brighter and richer in real life.

    A friend of mine has seats similar to these in his 914-6. The side bolsters really help keep you in your seat when cornering. You do need to be pretty skinny to fit, though!

    I think it's interesting that this color is more gray than white, at least in the pictures. Does it look gray in reality as well, or more white?
