Not the greatest picture of the interior - but you can see the colors. 7 years and 800+ hours. The leather seats have worn more than I would have expected. Definite abrasions on the top of each seat back (down to raw leather). I actually have a small hole worn about shoulder blade high in the seat back on the pilots side. Strangely, the seat cushions have worn better.

Thanks, everyone, for sharing your pics. Please keep them coming. I’m caught in a struggle between just replacing the current interior with an exact color and material match, or switching it up, and getting a bit radical with some of my choices.

I bought my 2008 RV-7 in spring of 2016 with 421 hrs on it. As of my last flight, I have 1411 hrs on the airframe. The seats are original. They are real leather and have held up fairly well, but are showing their age. They are dirty, and just like Dan, the tops of the seats reflect the abuse taken upon entry. Also, both front and cargo carpets are stained to the point of self-consciousness. Those are the reasons for exploring a new interior. That, and I think the newer side panels create better interior space. I appreciate all you guys helping out. You all have fantastic looking interiors, and I hope mine looks as nice soon.

Anyone with high time synthetic leather that can give us a comparison to the wear Dan and I have seen on the top of the seats?
