    The progress is looking great. The wheels look good as well. All my cars are labors of love and I fully expect to spend more money and labor than they are worth. Good luck and keep us informed.

    Those look great! Netted halo's should have lasted throughout the halo headrest years...they just look so cool. Kudos to your upholstery shop, they did a great job!

    Did you get the seats repaired? If not, how did you source that material?

    Material was available thru SMS and is all new. Foam was sourced from Late Model Restoration. The covers were sewn by a local trim shop who did a great job.
