Here are some older photos I have of the seats and door panels that were re-done by the previous owner before I bought the car. They are mostly correct, though the door panels are missing the screws in the myrolene (I have the missing trim pieces to install) and the white insert on the top of the seats dips down too low. Because of the level I am restoring this car to, I am strongly considering re-doing the tops of the seats after the car is finished. The screws will be easy to add with the rest of the door panel trim. For reference (because these types of photos are EXTREMELY helpful to someone attempting to do a correct restoration), I am also including a few photos from another car that has never had the interior re-done and has the same trim code as mine.

Awesome, David! Not many folks would notice the extra "dip length" in the material. My hat is off to you for getting it right. It's a shame that someone went to all the trouble of making the seats over but didn't take the extra effort to do them correctly.

Work has been slow, but here are a few recent photos of the bodywork in progress. Again, the body and paint work is being done at Stellar Antique Auto Restorations in Kansas. I have kept myself busy working on getting patch panels cut out of my parts car and working with SMS for the last 9 months to get a correct headliner. The second attempt is in the mail this week, so fingers crossed it's finally correct.
