Excellent, you do have a good imagination.
This thread is really giving me inspiration, between this and watching "Smokey and the bandit" again, its time to pull my finger out!

Awesome! Definitely gives me some ideas for mine and Kevin's interiors. I will definitely have some detail questions for you as I go. How long have you been working on this one? I remember when you were first brainstorming the designs.

OKC Turbo,,  you have  PM.


Dragon,  Ive been working on this one since about the second week in Nov.  Since I relocated last year, I left the full time upholstery and got a daytime job to help pay bills.  Ive been wanting to start a buisiness here but am kinda waiting untill I get a permanant home.  Right now I am just renting a house.   So meanwhile, Ive been doing the upholstery thing a car at a time after hours at my home garage after the family goes to bed.

Nice work.
Did you put the foil insulation under the headliner?  If so how did you make it stick to the roof?

Sorry, I just now saw this.

Mark had allready had the foil insulation on the roof.  It is glued up.

Everything I glue is sprayed on through a paint gun, and it is WeldWood industrial contact cement.  I use it for everything from vinyl tops, to small whatever jobs.   His insulation seemed to be stuck very well though so I left it alone.   Also my headliner I made was plywood and screwed into the roof structure so the insulation won't be a problem even if it does turn loose.

I havent gotten as much done as I should have, but here is the latest.  I still have to do the rear leanback, kick panels, under dash panels and everything else is small extra things such as a shifter boot.  He is going to build a console for it, but since it may be a while, I am going to make a boot to keep things looking done.
