This is going to be a first timers walk through doing a hot rod interior with no experience, but plenty of determination. If you look back at my 28 coupe build thread you’ll see I am willing to take a stab at most anything and really enjoy the learning experience. So let’s start off with getting a machine and getting a work area figured out. A pair of 8 foot folding tables was cheap and worked out well. I had been looking at used machines but bit the bullet on a Sailrite Fabricator when they had a big sale going on. Figured where I was going to need to learn from scratch, I’d like to make it a operator error only type of situation. I watched a bunch of YouTube videos from “Chechaflo” and “The Lucky Needle” , looked at tons of pictures mostly 50’s style interiors and got myself going. Bought some supplies to practice on as seen above. Tuck and Roll, hand stuffed pleats, top stitch stuff etc. just trying to get my feet wet with it. After a couple weeks of messing around, I just needed to start on something permanent for the coupe. Pulled the trans cover out, made a pattern and just went for it. Far from perfect but man it felt good to get going.
