Mr. Vijay, Sorry for Late Reply. One of my selection for upholstery colour tone choosing was wrong as Light Beige with Semi Dark Brown. The colour tone was not a big issue but both upholstery supplied by dealer was different brand and I notice one major issue of quality compromised in semi dark brown. that's why I used brown only with base panel of boot space and back side of passenger seat panel. Major part of both area will covered by Speaker Boxes and audio accessories. Rest I am planning according my concept.

I had started planning for the same by Dec-2011. I prepared thousand of layouts on paper by hand before start work and take measurements for most of internal areas of my car.
Still I don't have any time line due to time shortage for this work. I have my own ideas and concepts. only one car model is in my mind which is my own Maruti 800. I don't believe in copy and paste. I am trying to do best with my own resources.

I don't understand how you are going to plan for rest part of interior color tone. you should use some contrast, it is my opinion only.
This is only one aspect of my design. It is supposed to come out the other side of the coin. wait for some time.

Dear Jarpickle , To prevent it from absorbing moisture I will use glass silicon or rubber silicon on edges of MDF. All things will be water, heat, moisture resistant.
