    Thank everyone.

    As I said, I'm not concerned if people aren't posting, I just want to be sure people don't think I am going the wrong way with the build. In the end am building the car that I want to build I just want to be sure that I'm not ruffling any feathers for what I am doing with it. It seems from the comments lately that is not the case.

    Could we possibly get more pictures of the upholstery? I'm very intrigued by it and I'm even thinking of doing my interior panels like you did (well similar, not exact) in my 93 cobra.

    I'd love to see more pics!
    I'll get more up soon it's just hard to get good lighted pics in the garage. But I promise there will be more to come.

    I think if anyone was thinking you were going the wrong way,they would be more vocal about it.That being said,with the way the car looked previously, it is obvious your level of expertise/perfection/vision...that it will look fantastic when done---hell,it looked awesome before,and that was with some milder touches to the interior.

    Some people just have 'it' ,and whatever they touch looks great. You're one of 'those guys', consider yourself lucky.

    Tom, I do like where your going with this. I didn't post anything up yet as I didn't want to sound overly jealous, which I of course am. I think what you are doing is incredible.

    I was on vacation and stayed off the net for 5 days. And I'm rewarded with seeing the coolness of the work! I think it all looks great and I really like how the rear panels turned out. I'm not a big fan of the shock access covers but that's just personal preference. I think those would look better on the speaker openings only. Now it looks like you are calling out attention to the access covers which I think you should not. Just my opinion though. I would love to see more of the dash and final assembled shots though. Just don't get mad when I copy you. At least we don't live close to each other.

    I'll have to agree with Jeff. I am watching this thread daily, and while it is great, and dare I say "groundbreaking" in the Four eye world, I don't want to post up "looks killer" every 12 hours, but KNOW that I am thinking it.

    Yeah, my friend said the same thing about the access covers. Now I am committed though. I will be giving this some thought and see what I come up with.

    WOW, Amazing build! You've done a very nice job on this car and I also can't wait to see the finished product. I love seeing pride in people's work and it obviously shows in this car!

    Well these are the best pics I am going to be able to get until I get them installed. Everything is just sitting together in the pics not bolted up (for example: the dash pad, carbon fiber peices and gauges are just resting in place). The only thing I don't have pics of are the suede inserts that go on the rear quarter interior panels, but they basically look like the suede inserts in the door panel, I just picked them up tonight. After Carlisle I can start putting it in the car.

    The only way to really get the feel of how this looks is to see it in person, but I did the best I could with the pics.

    Damn!!! Just looks...WOW! As nice as the suede looks, I wonder what matching fabric would look like on the dash pad? Is the arm rest wrapped? It doesn't look like it? Also, is there an air bubble by the headlight switch? I can't wait to see it installed! Very nice work!

    That will definitely change the "feel" of the car inside.

    Believe me I went back and forth on the suede, but after getting done I think for my tastes I made the right decision. I guess we'll see once it is in the car. The arm rest pads aren't wrapped. They where in great shape so I didn't think it was worth the cost to have them done (lol, I spent a lot to do this but I do have a budget). I'll have to check by the headlight switch, I'm not sure.

    Thanks. That was the whole plan. I love the interior but I just wanted to class it up with some premium materials instead of all that fisher price plastic, lol.

    It's turing out great Tom! It looks to me like that's the way it came from factory! I wish someday I could run into you Tom and some of the other rides on FEP. I am soooo far away. With all that padding, it will be pretty quiet in the interior like a insulator.

    Wow, those door panels look incredible. I havent had much time to go through the last few weeks but I will get in there the next rainy day. My grass is also hoping for a rainy day. Nice job, Tom.

    Damn Tom. Looking awesome as usual. I like the quarter trim, and the rear hatch trim panels covered. I also dig the dash covered the way it is. I think I am on the fence about the suede dash pad, but it still looks cool. I think you are right about needing to see the whole interior complete to get the total feel of it. Maybe the suede on the dash just seems out of place with it out of the car, because it looks mint on the door panels with the carbon fiber instead of carpet. I don't want to be negative in any way, because my interior sucks bug time compared to the detail and quality of yours. Overall, I love this car, can't wait to see it again in person.

    Not at all, opinions are more than welcomed. I'll need to see the dash pad in the car to tell for sure. Keep in mind the headliner door inserts and quarter panel inserts (haven't taken pics of the quarter panel inserts yet) are all in suede and next winter when I do the custom console, something on that we probably have suede. Hopefully that will be enough to not make the pad look out of place. We'll see. And if it does I'm not afraid to change it and try something different.

    BTW, I'm glad you posted. I wanted to ask you what you painted your interior parts with? I think you did the door panels. I remember they looked great. Unfortunately for this year I will be running the stock and unupholstered console. So I may paint it to at least get a nice fresh finish on it. And I wanted to use what you used on your interior.
