Interior Modernization Project, Part 21. The Rear Side Panels!

As I mentioned in my previous post, Cesar (actually his son Alex) had sent a few more photos, not just the ones of the doors being prepared for the leather.

Unlike last time, I did not receive 20 photos, just the following 3!




Then again, these are pretty simple compared to the door panels. No need for Alcantara, just some nice stitching in the right places... and then about 10 days later, he sent me these photos:

You can see he had pre-sewn the pieces

Then used weights to hold down while the glue dried

And this is how the vinyl templates were all laid out on the hide.
So with the center console and main dash done, and now with both front doors and the rear panels also finished, what is left? Stay tuned...
