Ralf, is the interior from SMS? Where did you get the mylar for the door panels?

Thanks,
Carl

No Carl ,the interior is sewed at a local upholstery shop from vinyl off the roll. It is pretty close but not 100.
I could not have endured the SMS waiting...
The door panel mylar is not mylar , it is chromed vinyl I think. Not like the original but shiny at least and affordable.

Good choice Ralf. It would be very difficult to replace it if you sold it. This is another Sea Coast Aqua car.
