For interior padding I agree with Godfather. Keep it as it is.

PS: You planning to get tinted film or V-Cool ? Because those panels might get crazily hot during summer.
Thanks aditya, I'm getting the windows and rear hatch glass tinted and get v-cool or something similar on the windscreen!

Thumbs up Great stuff

Hi Edmund,

Have been following this thread for some time now and I must say "What a great job!!". The entire rebuild has been covered every step of the way and i'm sure the car will turn out just great!!

Any performance or other mods in the pipeline - alloys apart?

Drive on!!
Shibu.

Exclamation The seats!

A closer look.............




Quality or comfort doesn't match the original Recaros or sparcos...... but it's a good attempt
at getting there........




A pic without the flash..... Back and front......

Exclamation Overview of the seats!

He did quite a good job, don't ya think? The quality of the second seat is marginally better than the first, he admitted that it was a challenge and a learning experience for him!

A challenge: I agree, think about it, someone who upholsters ordianary car seats runs into an assembly line like routine and then comes a seat that's a fiberglass shell and has no points to hook or fasten the material to........
The cut of the material has to be perfect so that it holds down without any hassles, and hold it did........ he will also be doing my rear bench seat in art leather soon after the broken frame of the seat is welded.

VFM rating is a 5*, In addition to his attitude to take up the challenge he gave me the best bang for my buck!!!

If anybody in pune is planning to re-upholster their seats or get new seat covers made.......... PM me and i'll give you his contact details!
