well if i'm haemorrhaging money...

Post by Nate » Sun Aug 04, 2013 8:18 pm

might as well retrim the whole interior. found a supplier of very close to original headlining, so that's sorted. then i started looking for cloth for the seats and accidentally stumbled across a supplier of VW leather. i may have placed and order :blush:

so now i'm thinking about the front door cards, which are manky to say the least. anyone had their cards redone? show me pics peeps, i need inspiring :hugegrin:

Had a parcel yesterday with a sample of the headlining. Compared it to a sun visor Ive got in the shed and its a perfect match :D just waiting for cloth samples to arrive now...

Samples finally turned up. Mostly they looked much better on the screen. But I'm liking this. Black leather outer and the patterned cloth for the centres. Yay or nay?

I vote for cow print!

Like the cloth, but the grain on the leather looks a bit coarse for a side bolster - puts me in mind of the 'antico' leather on a mate's Merc ML Panzer.
