Interior Modernization Project, Part 20. And Now Onto The Doors...

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...
