It's all good; I like knowing my ideas were pulled off the way I wanted them done, and that they inspire others.
I originally wanted to do the trim pieces in blackwood like you plan on doing (to match the center console and radio surround), but I could never find a 3-door in Europe with blackwood insert trims. Maybe someday I'll tackle it, but it's waaaay down the list. Plus I'm not too thrilled with the idea of drilling through my leather inserts. LOL
Whatever your ideas are, get them done before you reveal them!
There will always be somebody else who reads it and gets it done before you, and that's when it really sucks.
