Cool. You go with the vintage style stuff?

I just got in a roll of vinyl for the rear seats. I don't have doug around here so I'm gonna sew them up myself.

...same fabric combo kevin used on the java '66, gonna look stellar \:D/

It's just the covers for the camper kit, nothing fancy. Pull the old covers off, use as a template, and sew together using one of my mother many high dollar sewing machines. I'll mess up a few times I'm sure. last interior I sewed up was my Nissan minitruck about a decade ago.
