Default New interior!

Hey guys.

Posting up the progress on my interior. I had some guys help me out with the things I couldn't do myself. I've also had a few people ask me where I got my interior done and what it looks like. I had a little trouble getting things to fit nicely due to the vinyl wrapping but it came together with a little drawing and patience. I hope this answers some questions

I did the center console, pieces above the rear seats, dash and front kicks myself. Everything still needs a little more work (cutting, gluing and fitting) but ill be posting up photos as i go. I'll post some more photos tomorrow

Also, I decided to go with a different approach With the interior trim pieces..I went with a "landau black" SEM flex coat to give it some style and also soften up the look on the inside.


Also, I'm sorry to the mods...I couldn't seem to adjust the size of the pics right now. Looking to fix that within 24 hours.

Great looking interior. I like your willingness to do your own thing and the results are great.

David, that is beautiful work! That is really going to stand out well when you put it all together. Like the others, I am looking forward to see what the interior is going to look like when you are finished.

Thanks guys! It's a lot of work but i'm having so much fun doing it I'll be posting up a lot of photos.

I will be working on getting sound deadener and carpet installed soon after getting some surface rust off the floor.. have any of you had experience with this? I would really like to get some great fitting carpet to put down. would a carpet kit specifically for 58-60 tbirds work better than cutting one myself? what did all of you do?

Thanks for the support!

-David

Take it easy, Henry and don't overdo it... I am also a member of the "Zipper Club" also, though mine was a 5 way bypass about 5 years ago. It can take a toll on ya. So please don't try to do to much at one time...

I agree Henry, Take your time! I've been working little by little to get this interior finished the right way. Take some photos of your process if you can. I could always learn from people doing things differently.

So I have a bit of a problem with my headliner. I installed everything correctly (as far as I know) so far. But I'm having trouble with the headliner bars not staying upright..the ones closer to the back of the car are ok but it's the one closest to the front isn't staying up. Is it too tight? Or do you guys have a trick? It looks like its sagging. Here are some photos
