You have no idea how lucky you are to have a trunk mat! I have only seen a few and they are not that good. It looks fantastic. Great job!

Dave, you're doing some outstanding work there! The trunk mat is incredible. Those clips are notorious for rusting; apparently the factory didn't bother to coat or paint them at all. If you run into any more issues with them, many of those clips are available from RJ&L: www.rjlautofasteners.com

Are you taking this car to the Roundup in April?

Nice to see a 4 door getting this kind of love, not unusual in Sweden but very unusual here, great job!

This is the front seat that was in the car when I got it. I always thought it was a high quality redo on the original frames. My upholstery guy thinks otherwise. He says it's factory. The frame looks quite a bit like my 4dr hdtp one. Hmmm... not sure. The frame has an ashtray socket on the back. But when I got it the material covered it and there was no ashtray. Hmmm...

Anyone recognize what it's from?

Latest. Still need to adjust the trim a little. Not a whole lot though.

Rechroming isn't in the budget for this car. So I'll live with what I've got. At least for now anyhow.
