I got my Baby back together today

Carpets went very well, it was a breeze...Seats were a challenge and while AI am not completely satisfied with my work I am very happy the entire project came out so well.

Time to drive some this weekend

Did you do anything to the dashboard to restore it? Everything looks great

Looks new again, excellent work Dwight! The problem with doing your own work is you know where the flaws are, it drives me nuts!

Ok... i'm not one for 'custom interiors' but i have to say, that is looking good.

As a personal view, i think what you have really scored the high points is in keeping essence of the car, not going wild or whacky but going for a finish and look that exemplifies rather than changes the interior.

Top work !

Did the carpet kit include the doors? Some black leather might look better there with tan stitching.

I want to get rid of my door carpeting ASAP and replace with dark grey alcantara (and on the steering wheel).

Yes

That is exactly as it came from the factory. I had not thought about Alcantara or Tsunami on the doors but it would look good.....or actual leather.....hhhmmm an idea for the future
