Default Interior Work On Rose Is About Done

Cathie, you are gonna get me killed!!! You are about a day late or two with your suggestion that we put the yellow rose in the center of the white floor mats! What a terrific idea and how sharp that would look! I wish I had thought about it. I do not know if A1 Sports who did those roses, will be able to embroidery those roses into that floor mat. I am about half afraid to suggest this to Danny, but maybe he might be able to un-sew that plastic, slip the floor mats out and give it a try. I suspect that he will probably say the same thing I just did. "Why didnt I think about that!?" I think I will suggest it and see what he says.

Now, you just let the cat out of the bag about those seat belt covers! I was not going to say anything until I posted the pictures, probably later on today. Danny got one belt done before he ran out of plastic and white velcro. He should be back at it today if his supplies came in. Yes, Cathie offered to make the clear plastic covers for me, which was a great idea. However, Danny was at the point where he wanted to finish off the car so we can get on to the trunk. So I decided to have Danny do them. However, he got sidetracked for lack of material, and also had to concentrate on some other work that had to be out to the customer. So he had to put my seat belts aside for a few days. It was VERY much appreciated that Cathie offered to do them for me. I will post the pictures when he is done. This was a very good idea that Cathie had because the clear plastic covers the white seat belts from top to bottom, held in place by white velcro on the back side... BTW, I am still waiting for Shawn to get back to me regarding contacts in the Colorado area for dash pad repairs.

LOL - OK here's an easier idea.... the joint that made the roses? have them make two for just the front area, a little bigger than the seat ones, you can get double sided clear tape, or Danny can probably come up with a decent clear drying glue, and stick them to the under side of the clear covers - if they were sewn to the clear covers, the material would be compromised, and loose its effectiveness.
I think the rear floor mats would be OK to leave plain, although the same idea could apply, only with the same size rose as is on the seats...

Oops on the seat belt covers, but I am a little sulky I couldn't do them, LOL

Hi Cathie,

Thanks for the additional ideas! I am about to leave to visit Danny. I will probably tell him of your idea about the floor mats and see if he decks me or not for adding more work to this project. Those roses do not come cheap.. Yes, I think the front set would do the trick.

I really was looking forward to you doing the seat belt covers for me until I got pressed for time... So I thought.. As it turned out, he did not get to this project as quickly as he thought he would. My Tbird is not his only business. You would be surprised at the work he and his side kick, and his wife, have turned out since my bird has been in there! Luckily, he has a lot of other business. Since I have been going there, I have seen them do chair recovering and reconstruction, motorcycle seats, repairs on several car interiors, some I have posted pix about, and another full interior restoration is going on in another car behind mine! It is being done in white and blue ostrich covers...

I hope you live close enough to get some pix of that white and blue ostrich resto - sounds intriguing!

I can imagine they do a lot of business, talent is not easily come across, and these two have PLENTY!
I am green with envy and jealously

an even easier thought just came to mind...he could remove the clear covers, and spray paint an outline of the rose onto the clear cover, he can decide under or on top, depending on material or method of application....

And while I am on the subject of suggestions...LOL
for the trunk...thinking along the lines of as PLAIN as you can get, LOL - by this viewing point in time, folks are going to be over-whelmed with the color and flash
Picture this:
Black borders
A centered block of Yellow and White squares - kinda like the original grey and black trunk interior - only the yellow and black actually form a TRUE checker board!
Your playing pieces can be bought or made, to have handy at the S and S's!
( the rest of the trunk detailing will fall into place I hope, since I don't have a clue right now, just picturing you beating everyone at checkers, LOL )

I can get you pix of the blue and white ostrich door panels and seats that they are working on. They are all over the place in there. Seats sitting in one area, door panels being worked on by Danny. I dont know if it is real ostrich, but it looks like it.

As for the roses, I will see how the test comes out. If it does not come out well on the white carpet material, we will have to think of something else. I will keep your suggestions in mind.

As for the trunk, thanks for the suggestions. I have the trunk layout already laid out in my mind. I know exactly what I want to do with it. I am not planning on playing checkers in the trunk! But thanks for the idea.

I just uploaded a couple of pix showing the new clear vinyl coverings on my white seat belts. He used long white velcro strips on the back side to keep them in place. He is doing the back seat belts today. Click on the link below

Thanks, skyd! I am about to post what will probably be the next to last two pix of the interior. These two pix will show the white back seat belts encased in clear vinyl. That job is now complete. There is only one more thing, other than some cleanup to be completed. Sometime next week, I will post those two pictures and that should end the interior job. Thanks for all the nice comments. Much appreciated and Danny has enjoyed seeing what all you have said also. He hardly ever gets that kind of feedback regarding the quality of his work. His wife said he is walking around with the big head now!

Except for a couple of more things, the interior work on Rose is finished. There is something else we are working on and that will pretty will do it. I added a couple of pix tonight that you might want to see. I have already started a new web page on the trunk work and will post it when I have something I want you to see. You can see the new interior pix by clicking on the link below.

Default Interior Work On Rose Is About Done

Mike ~ gaffney1951 in Colorado was looking for someone to do some dash repair to his vehicle. It took awhile for Shawn, who did my dash repair to get in contact with the guy he needed to, but he called me today and said he had a couple of contacts for Mike and others in Colorado who might need dahs repairs. He said to contact Tim Honan, who he thinks is in Vail, at 970-309-3158. He is not sure if he is still doing dash repairs, but if not, should be able to tell you who is.

Another contact is Miguel, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, 918-277-3844. He also might be able to give you some other leads if you ask him too. I hope this helps.
