So as if the dash alone wasn't an absolute miracle of old world craftsmanship, ingenuity and some OCD, Cesar was far from done. Indeed, a couple of weeks after (the flu slowed him down!) he sent me the following photos of the work being done already on the door panels I had sent him from my own car.
And as is rapidly becoming my habit, I'll let the photos do the talking...
|Obviously the white lines show where the stitching will go.|
|And here is a rough sketch of where the courtesy lamp would go|
|I had asked Cesar to cover the green spots in Alcantara. His response, "no problem"! Yellow and Red were the spots we had debated on where to put the courtesy lamps.|
|Door pocket guides have been removed to be covered in Alcantara|
|Adding reinforcement to that section of the driver door that had deteriorated due to one too many heavy elbows|
And it wasn't just the doors he was working on, he also sent this photo to show the difference between his brake lever boot and the Redline one.
|Cesar's vs Redline|
|Cesar's has the snap, the Redline is velcro|
Sharp eyed readers will see that the photos of the doors are only for those of the driver door. He sent a bunch over too for the passenger door but they are basically the same as the ones above and I am too lazy to post them.
He DID send some other photos, which I will post in my next post...
