Hi Melissa,
As you may have seen from our earlier posts, we have a lot of experience with finishing in general and matte finishes for wood, carbon and colors.
Matte is a good interior option, particularly with a bright color. However, the true look is a little difficult to capture with a photo. Lighting can look a funny. Hope this helps.

Very helpful, thanks. Something to consider when I take delivery of the jeep. I like both versions.

Any love for Bikini? Love to see sample pic before purchase, assuming it's available.

Who doesn't love Bikini? Particularly when it's on a JL interior!
Just one of the factory colors to upgrade your interior.

So are all the steering wheels you get just the white stitched wheels or can you get the red with factor heat also for fascia painting?

Hello Brian,
If you want the steering wheel trim in a factory color, we prepare the trim and send just that part to you for installation. You can keep your original wheel. If you also want color on the top of the wheel, then we have to build that for you.
We purchase the core parts from local Jeep dealers, currently the wheel with the red stitch is only available without heat.
We do change leather and thread color for some customers, popular with Raptor customers.
Brian let me know if this answers your inquiry.
Thanks,
David

Wanted to give a shout out to @Rau Racing Wheels for excellent quality paint work/finish and excellent service! It's always nice when you find new vendors who provide good quality work and deliver on things exactly as they promise!

I'd seen a few examples of folks doing gloss color-match Ocean Blue dashes in their JL, but I had kinda envisioned what a satin-finish Ocean Blue might look like in mine since I first got it. Basically mimic the look and feel of the stock satin red dash panels, but in Ocean Blue. Ran across this post, found them very responsive via a few PM's, and decided to pull the trigger on a set. They gave a reasonable estimated ship date, shipped exactly when they'd estimated, and provided tracking number the day it shipped.

Dash pieces were packaged very well, and the satin Ocean Blue finish is flawless!

...and of course, some pics:

I love how it turned out...exactly how I'd envisioned it! :rock:

Dave,
Thanks for your installed images and positive comments regarding your Rau experience.
A matte interior lowers the bling level, and becomes more livable.
I believe you were also considering the door latches in OB matte. The wear on the latches is no greater than a matte steering wheel, and we have made 100s or even 1000, with matte finish.
Another consideration might be the steering wheel done in a matching blue fiber, matte of course.
Why not be unique?
David

Just ordered the RAU rubcion red steering wheel set. Will post photos when installed for those interested in the products. In the interim, I just put in the American trail products bullet grab handles. I’m digging them

how do those grab handles match to the factory dash panels?

Not a perfect match. A bit more plum in the color but it doesn’t trouble me. Blends well. If you are super ticky on a perfect match then you will be disappointed
