Awesome Ron! this gets me excited! Has it been out of the garage yet this spring? If not, you should test drive it up to my place on the weekend.

ok let's get back to the seats.....who likes coffee..?? A bunch of these sacks came into work one day and I grabbed them up...I didn’t know why at the time but, everything happens for a reason right?

....this is how they ended up....
Image

...the passenger side got a bit more padding...nicknamed the princess seat for the Mrs. Smile


....the rear took shape too....a little different though...

Image

looks all right...eh?

Nice Ron. I don't remember seeing the rear, did you finish that over the winter? Looks great! Coming together nicely!

Thanks!!.....the rear seat was done the same time as the fronts....it's lighter in color and maybe blended in with all the rest of the old interior. Smile

Or maybe you were so impressed with the cushy feel of princess seat you never noticed.... :-#

Even though I like my coffee bags I'm still going to make the interior nice & shiny new looking....something like this,but with lighter carpet...(pic courtesy of TS)....or something different??
