turbo-you created your own eternal jewel!!! I told you back then and I'll say it again, I like it. The interior is my fav, because I have the same red as you are using on my 2005 Pebble Beach. I've often wondered what happens when my leather fades or wears out-will I add black to it and make it two tone? Perhaps. Especially the bolster seating areas that get worn. The red might be too hard to find to replace unless the magicians at Sewell that have redone my seats in the past have red dye (which I doubt).

As big of a horse trader as you are, I can't imagine you owning a car long enough to wear it out.

Great thread Scdroptop, or should I say Wikiscdroptop?

Leathertique has red dye and also sells a product by the same name to oil the seats as well as another that is called pristine clean . I use them both twice a year and my car still smells like new leather and the leather is soft and looks great. Its a bit expensive but so are our cars.

Since my car is a 2005 PB I also over the years have been able to buy pimento red door panels center consols arm rests and other assorted interior parts to have in case I need to replace or repair a part. I bought them all on ebay very reasonable from salavge cars.
I figured my cars interior was only made in three year models that it would be a good investment.

I dont know what to say except " AM SO HAPPY TO READ YOUR COMMENTS MAN!!"
my insperation from the begining was the Pebble Beach edditions that are red inside like your SC!! I loved the redish inside and wanted to combine it with black. So, I added the black color and imagine it! it was perfect. Found a professional to do it and got it two tone

Thanks for this great thread and great job scdroptop

Thank you moderators for making this a sticky! All our cars are special and rare, and now that they are officially out of production the most unique, rarest and special editions will be even harder to find great information on. This site is filled with many more great posts that should be stickys too like common problems with the SC and others.

Maybe I'll start that one??? I will revisit soon with 2011 Eternal Jewel spy shots in Japan when we actually get them. I've been searching the web like crazy looking for them and still cannot.

I have an 04 PB - the light blue with ecru and black wood. I always admired the SCs but didn't seriously consider getting one until I saw this color combo and it was a must have. It took me about a year to find one.

would love to see your pics rustito and please tell us anything else about the car not posted or anything I might have missed. The 04 PB doesn't have much stuff on the web.

The Definitive SC430 Special Edition Thread-20783pb_430_interior.jpg

Trying a new method to upload a pic - this is interior on my 04 PB and no telling how big (or small) the pic will be - or if it will be there at all (this is a true PB SC in Wonderland experience)!!

OK - finally got it - I can post some more later now that I have it figure out. The lighted door threshold is a cool medium blue. Also I had the wheels restored to the proper color - which has a blue that matches the body on the outer part of the wheel (gives a more metallic blue look on the wheels). On the BIG pic if you look at the rear wheel you can sort of see the color. It is a bit more pronounced now. The pie plates were removed as well as the flatruns.

Have you ever seen the thresholds in the Neiman Marcus model. They are like electric blue. Very vivid . Would you say that describes yours.
