Joe “Burgy” did a writeup for us on how he teamed up with Sam “Green Poupon” and tacked his custom interior, step by step.
Warning: Long read
It all started with a late night chat online(no homo) I was complimenting Sam(Green Grundel/Green Poupon) on some interior work he had done and I told him that I needed to fix a spot on my soon-to-be wifes car. He said he would send a swatch of cloth to wrap the handle. I thought it was cool that he offered to help a total stranger…so I started talking to him more often and we both agreed that interiors were the single most neglected part of a US VIP build across the board. When he heard this he was shocked at just how much I had thought out regarding my own build and just didn’t have the skills to do it myself. He encouraged me to have a go at it myself and he said he could give me pointers. Then I shared with him My dream for the headliner and he about crapped his pants From that point on he hounded me about doing the interior ASAP. He even offered to do the sewing if I shipped the seat leathers to him!
When we last showed you Burgy’s interior, it was completely gutted. It is just about complete now. All the factory grey trim and a-b-c- pillars were swapped out for Lexus black vinyl. The seat inserts and door cards were done in white baby ostrich. There is more that has yet to be installed. Here are a few pics
This blog shows the power of what we are doing here at Liberty. We are trying to unite the scene for the greater good. Joe “Burgy” teamed up with Sam “Green Poupon” from Minnesota to get his custom interior done. Sam flew out half way across the country just to work on Joe’s interior. This is actually the second time he flew out there to help complete this one of a kind cabin. Check out the progress so far.
Diamond stitching has become very popular in the US VIP scene. It is a sought after style that was popularized by the likes of Bentley.
Big Ty has put in lots of work these past few months inside and out. He was willing to show off his elegant interior with us.

Paul out of Staten Island, NY has chosen an unlikely vehicle which he looks to VIP style, the Lexus IS300. Given his track record on his previous builds and history of DIY mods, we had no problem letting him in our circle. As of right now, he still has some way to go but he looks to tackle this one, inside out.
Check out the progress on his interior. Two-tone with diamond stitch suede inserts, suede door cards, headliner and pillars.
