Title: Door panels are here
Post by: 300rag on May 07, 2008, 06:22:49 PM
(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley1.gif) After  waiting since I dropped them off at SMS last October, they are finally here(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley1.gif).
I am changing the interior from Black/Gold to White, and will be painting all the interior surfaces the new exterior colour - most likely code AVE Daytona orange. I am still undecide as to whether I will try to get a good set of insert/emblems for the doors or just leave them as is, since it is not going to be an original interior anyway. Got some shiny new repro armrest bases too!

I think the seats need a little more padding! LOL. Seriously though it looks great. I really like white interior. Door panels look awesome.

Those do look like nice.(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley1.gif)
 
I'm too lazy for a white interior.  I can barely keep dark red clean. (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif)

I heard the wrinkled look was in this year...... (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley17.gif)

Doors look nice! How do they compare with the originals  (molded lines, accuracy, etc...)?

I'm surprised you don't have the whole car in the bed room. (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif) (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif) (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif) (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)

Do those seat covers have the black basket weave?   Are they in good enough shape to be reused?  Mine are split all over the place. 
The arm rests are still chrome but the gold pads are pretty dirty and a bit warped.

As best as I can tell, they seem to be correct. My panels had been repaired once in it's lifetime, and that repair consisted of glueing a new layer of material over the old. This had been stitched in a random width lines - nowhere near original. The molded lines are done quite well - but then I'm not an upholstery guru.
