Interior Work On Rose Is About Done
Over the weekend, Danny re-worked the elbow panels and continued working on the carpeting. The back sections are in and done, as is the front passenger side. He was working on the drivers front side when he had to stop to take his wife to the doctors. It is coming along. There are still some things that have to be fixed yet, like door panels that have to be completed, and some other things. But sometime in the next week or two, the interior work should be completed. We have been talking about what color heel pad to put in. It won't be seen because there will either be a carpeted floor mat there or a rubber one. We are discussing what color that should be. There is not much to choose from if I buy one from the vendors. Black, Blue, Red, Green, I think it is. I can have one made by Auto Custom Carpets in Alabama, but it would cost me $170 for a front set. I am thinking... With them, they will make it to the color I want it to be.

When he is finished with the interior then there are some other things that Danny is going to be doing in the trunk... If you need the link, here it is:

um, Ray...if you pay 170.00 for a colored heel pad that won't be seen, I would like to sell you some beach property in the Mojave

Hey Ray,
Carpet looks great! I hope you take you shoes off before you step foot in The New Yellow Rose Of Texas:D Please when you get her finished will you put these photo's in Technical library for later use?

Hi Cathie & Richard!

Thanks for the comments! The cost of $170 was for two custom made floor mats using carpeting material with the '58-'59 Tbird logo on them. We were thinking of having a gray front set made. For $60 I can buy a set of front rubber floor mats with the Tbird logo and spend the $110 on who knows how many cases of root beer if I want to! :D Besides those rubber mats should be a lot easier to keep clean. Danny is thinking of putting in a white heel pad so that if I have the rubber mats out, it will look pretty spiffy with the white heel pad in place.

Cathie, I am glad to hear that you are feeling much better, and finally getting some rest this week, after catching up at work. Check the posts, as one guy was needing help posting pix and I don't remember who it was.

Richard, I can put the web page on the Fortune City Technical Tips website so people will have it to refer to when they go through interior work on their Squarebird. Good idea!:p

Today, Danny covered the two side kick panels and they are in. Look under the pictures of the original ones and you will see the new ones. He also sewed a heel pad into the carpet, though it will probably not see a heel ever put on it directly. Then I took some pictures of the passenger door closed to show the continuity between that side kick panel, the door panel and the rear section. Because of the expense of custom made floor mats, I will probably go with the standard black rubber ones with the Tbird logo on them. They should be easy to take out and clean when needed. We are getting there! Here is the link if you need

Hey Ray,
She's looking good! What you said: Fortune City Technical Tips sounds better than what I said:D

Very Nice!!!

I like it Ray.
One thing about it . . . Depending on your exterior color "brightness" . . . When the Space Shuttle flies over they'll say "Hey look at the yellow TBird down there"
