Hey All-

It's been a few months since I've posted on here but I wanted to post my latest weekend work. Last year or so I finished the body work on my 76 and painted the car myself. It was major project but until the interior was done, I still had a lot of work to do. I just finished it this weekend!

This was on my list:

- New Carpet

- New Headliner

- Redone seats

- Redone rear seat

- New Door Panels (front/back)

- Turn all tan interior items to Black

So here are the before shots:

My old Headliner:

My Old Carpet and Seats:

Thanks to Esty's fast skills with her sewing machine I received my carpet kit in no time (and the quality is outstanding). Made some MINOR adjustments to it during install but if anyone is considering a carpet kit, Esty is the ONLY place to buy from.

With some local help from my favorite interior shop, I had them redo my seats and headliner. For the headliner I made a risky choice and chose a gray color.

I just moved out of the Bay Area to Salt Lake City. If any 02ers are in SLC pipe up, I'd love to see what meets you guys have here.

Thanks again to Esty

that looks great. I really like the color combo.

Have you worked on your sunroof in the past? I have a sunroof that needs to be completely redone. I'm not sure where to start.

I'm in downtown SLC. That looks great! I'm not happy with the previous owner's carpet kit installation, would love to check that one out.

Nice work, but it looks like you installed the right door panel on the left door and vice versa.

Do you have more pix of those seats in their "before" state? They look like the seats I have now. I assumed that they weren't original, but maybe they are.....

I think you need a gasket under your door mirror.

Regarding the question about the original seats. It had a cloth fabric material with a vinyl backing. They were in OK shape... not sure if the fabric was factory or not... See more pics below.

Thanks

Did you get the headliner done in the bay area, or SLC? If in the bay, can you share where you did it and how much it cost? Did you have the glass pulled, or did they work around it?

Thanks!

I think your "risk" turned out great. Very nice interior. I too would like to know how much the headliner cost.

+1! If the work was done in the Bay Area, or nearby, please tell who, and how much. I'm in the process of redoing my interior and yours looks great.
