It's on Bitches
I'll have more to say on this in a couple weeks !
Truck is taking shape, New bed, new ZQ8 daily wheels and now the whole interior, all I can say right now is watch out Brian and Doc !
I should be taking the seats and gauge pod to the upholsterer this week for tweed and then doing the parts that I can do without fear of ruining them.
Then some shiny bits.
I got the seats stripped down and will be taking the covers in for tweed as well as the gauge pod on Friday, the rest of the interior has been stripped and is awaiting tweed as well. I figured I might as well start this because the truck looks ok on the outside now and I sit inside of it so why not finish it, once the upolstery is done it is on to billet goods.
And for those that did not know that I have a custom 3 guage pillar pod, I picked up one off ebay and trimmed it and reshaped it to fit my stock pillar and then used dura-mix and a few rivets to fasten it, i'll also throw up a pic of the underside so you can see how i trimmed it out.
notice that i still have the upper metal clip as well as the lower one (not pictured in this one) I wanted this to stay put and not fall down.
I ordered up some Black Marble tweed from Select Products and had a local upholstery shop remove the oem inserts and sew in my tweed with new 1/2" foam and also added the pleats !
Take a look, let me know what ya think ?
(I decided to leave them as high back instead of cutting them down, why.....I actually like them that way !)
The tweed I used is from http://www.selectproducts.com
Jasone and Brian also got their tweed there as well.
I cannot wait to see the 3 gauge pod when it is done !
My seats look so awsome now that sunlight is hitting them instead of dim livingroom lights !
Well I just spent some more money
I ordered up some billet goodies, here is the run down so far
Billet automatic gear shifter, window cranks, ribbed screw-on wiper post covers, roof grab handle.
Billet door speaker grilles, dash speaker grilles, defroster vent, dash grab handle, door handle cups (no lock hole and ball milled).....(all in stock, should have it mid to late next week !)
Billet hvac and headlamp knobs.
i just need to contact http://www.billetandacrylic.com/
and order the headlamp plate, air bag cover (without the hole), side defroster vents, fuse box cover and the hvac plate.
Still need the steering wheel from Billet Specialties, I have decided to get the Psycho with a black leather half wrap.
Just got back from the Upolstery shop and looky at what I got !
