    I'm doing a major modification of the interior of my 360 and part of the plan was to order up a set of these beauties from the great people at Ultimate Pedals.

    If you're unfamiliar with them.. You should definitely check out their website. They can basically do anything you want in terms of custom work. I selected everything here from the type of finish (matt or polished) to the embossing and type of grips. The options are pretty limitless. I also opted for a matching passenger side foot rest.. Why not right?? ;)

    What do you guys think? More pictures coming soon as well as an entire thread I'll start regarding all the work performed in the interior over the past couple months.

    Thanks for taking a look!

    Thank you! No.. Didn't refinish the dash leather. Changing the carpet to black, taking care of all the sticky pieces, hydro graphics to the silver aluminum pieces and door sills. Also have a new custom carbon fiber and leather steering wheel on the way. Finally in the reassembly stage.. Thankfully. ;)

    Here's a shot of my interior for reference. I suspect that yours will probably look similar when done. Minus the F430 GT2 door panels and CS sport seats. I know you have regular door panels and 458 sport seats.

    Ryan, your 360 is badass. Not to mention those nicely refinished interior parts :D

    Seriously, the entire car is killer - especially the center locks.

    The OP's pedals are very nice. Hopefully those are anodized for some protection.

    Well, I had to get ALL of the interior parts refinished because they were sticky. I sent them to some dude in buffalo who talked just like Rob Gronkowski. Gronk's twin made them perfect.

    Sorry if this is a dumb question but what are "hydro graphics?"

    Graphics that are transferred to sit atop a vat of water in which a part is dipped. The part's surface tension makes the graphic attach to it.

    Thank you. What's the point of that? Do you put logos and things on parts? Is that it?

    Actually it's possible to transfer nearly any type of graphics imaginable with hydro graphics. I removed all the silver painted aluminum pieces within the interior and had them treated to a carbon fiber graphic we designed to match the original carbon weave on my 458 Carbon Sport seats.

    In my opinion this is a great alternative to purchasing new carbon fiber parts. The cost is a fraction of those pieces and best of all, you retain the original fit of your oem stuff. Also, just like paint there's several coats of clear that get applied after the graphics which allows for years of polishing out little scratches etc that will inevitably occur. Here are a few photos of my parts all finished. I'd love to hear your opinion..

    What finish are on your seats. Here are the Novitec carbon pieces in my car and they look pretty different than what you just posted. Yours look like all the "carbon look" parts I see on eBay for the JDM cars. If you're designing this, maybe you can make it more like the OEM?

    Also, to do all the carbon parts isn't super expensive. I just sold some Novitec carbon door pieces (the large L shaped pieces) for a few hundred bucks. That said, you outlined good reasons to keep the aluminum and of course maybe it's possible that is just how they photograph and in real life it looks more realistic. A darker aluminum finish might be near, too, and it's not trying to be something it isn't. I do get the thought process though.

    I wanted them to match my 458 carbon seat backs and they're an absolute dead on match to those. However, it's possible to match any carbon weave desired.

    That is interesting. Can you post pics of your hydro graphics parts against the real OEM carbon? I would love to see. Clearly I am missing something and I like understanding all the options.

    Sherpa. THAT is FIRE. Did you get your dash recovered in alcantara? The look you have is how I want my 355 to look!

    And you're absolutely right about the manual looking more proper in the 360 than it does in a 430. No manetino.

    Close but not close enough. Carbon is black but reflects a gradation of black from different angles. The dipped pieces try to mimic that depth and reflection by throwing in some gray, which throws it off a bit. But to each their own of course.

    Love the alcantara dash too Sherpa.. How difficult is it to remove that upper dash pad? Your car is absolutely magnificent man!
