    had it out for a drive or two, seems I might have a vacuum leak and it needs some tuning. It seems like the trans doesn't shift into 4th. so some work to do. 137 094.JPG

    Decided to fix my vacuum leak with a new intake as the first one was a very poor fit, had some help with that. Next I decided to try upholstery. Made some paper patterns for around the windows, then made them out of left over sheet metal. 141 001.JPG 141 004.JPG 141 005.JPG

    Cut a panel to screw to the roof. The dome light will hold the center up. 141 009.JPG

    Then I did the doors. Foam then vinyl with spray glue, very simple with no pattern so it looks old car. 141 014.JPG 141 015.JPG

    Thanks redzula, I did not know what to use but it seemed that most of the antique cars I've seen had some kind of brown or gray so I kind of picked something that looked old. I glued vinyl to the metal and test fitted it on around the windows.I didn't put any foam under it here. 141 017.JPG 141 018.JPG

    Never done any upholstery before and I think it shows, but I kind of like the primitive A look. I got quite a few ideas from D-Russ and his Vicky, thanks for that. I think the doors should have some kind of pockets though.
     
  19. Not an easy task, came out really well.

    Carpet is cut and in, I did not put an edge on it because I did not know how, and I will probably pay for that later. 141 029.JPG 141 030.JPG

    The carpet is brown just a lighter shade, camera changes it. I glued upholstery 141 032.JPG material to the hump. The seat is still grey, I don't want to tear it apart as it is very comfortable now and I don't want to ruin it.
