    Clara makes all the interior stuff for commercials, that’s what’s in my dcab. Fits great and easy to install. don’t forget the sound insulation first.

      I’ve seen Clara’s, they are very nice.  Any recommendations on brand of insulation?

    We’ve used this a few times, personal and customers.

    No exposed foil to short out the fuse block or other wiring, doesn’t absorb water like jute padding.

    We will build it if it comes.

    It’s been awhile.  Loving the DC.  Expecting some interior panels soon, so I started the sound deadening/radiant barrier installation.UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_317b

    Nice Mike!!!! Looking great!!!  Who’s panels did you buy?  That rear roof piece is a trick to get popped in there…. Good luck!  😎

    Ended up getting the panels from SewFine in Denver.  The guys from West Coast Classic Restorations never got back to me.  I just got the panels yesterday.  They are tan vinyl, no inserts or tweed.   Haven’t fully opened the box with the panels, but it’s going to look sweet.

    The bench seat covers are tan with black piping to match the steering wheel and knobs.  The covers haven’t arrived yet.

    Finally, finally got some work done on the Double Cab.  I rebuilt and recovered the seats and installed the interior panels.  I don’t know what the trick is, but lining up those holes when drilling through the front of the panels is a pain in the ass.  Especially on those holes that are augered out from previous installations.  It took a while, but I think it came out pretty darn good!  Still need to do the kick panels and the roof panels.

    I think that looks great, a little different from stock but nice and subtle. Great job!!

    Looks nice!

    Trick is a rivet hole finder, per Clara on a thread on the samba:1508354

    Thanks for the compliments!  YouTube is an amazing professor and those covers had perfect fit.  Both made it easy.

    I wanted the interior to be a little different, but feel like it might belong. As if VW made a deluxe pickup, like the Platinum editions of modern trucks.

    I saw that hole finder gizmo on several threads. It looks like it would help on 80% of the holes, but there are a bunch that are tight.
