well i finally got some time to do some work to my interior
I cut the seat to get a 40/40 and sewed up the factory fabric....came out great . my dash and seats are gray, so I went black on the new pieces
installed a shorty console since I have a manual and I think I am not going to get the leather arm rest part since I like it the way it is and since the supports break alot anyway.
In its place, I am gonna have a diamond plate square and a repainted ford badge (will be black where usually blue). I think it will look sweet.... pics soon...
MANY MANY THANKS to FRANK (*pastfinder) who gave me the console and helped me get all of the rest of the hardware. You're a swell guy!
where's the pics man! Sound swell.....Hey...there's another member here who uses the word "swell"....i don't feel alone anymore. lol. where'd you get it from?? I got it from "the beav". haha.....WHERE's THE PICS!!
sorry guys been on vacation... pics tomorrow!
I ended up with a black metal plate bc i couldn't find a reasonable source of diamond plate (ie not $1000000 per square inch...) and i got the blue and gel removed from the badge, and paint will be sometim next week
Alright Guys, here are the long awaited pics!!! I painted badge with model paint, but i would reccomend NOT doing that as it seems to be very fragile and it show wrinkles. I did the seat cutting, very straight forward, and the console was a little more complicated as i had to do some fabbing to get the bracket to match up. I also slanted mine a little forward cause i think it is more comfortable.
TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK...
Black Painted badge bolted onto a metal plate
no actually it was black when i got it and i got lucky with some 2001 to make it look good
I had to paint the little pop-in side covers cause they were tan, and yeah, some left over metal stock to cover where i didn't put the arm rest
