Interior refresh

Removed my interior to have it re done in leather in the original color...as well as the GTV seats. Should have them back in a week or two...I went with a local guy. It was a cost effective decision. It was better than ordering covers and panels. I will post pics when I get them back.

You've mentioned that the interior will be done in leather. That's a nice option, however I would like to know if you will apply also the original pattern of the leather? Because the original Veloce leather seats have a specific hole pattern.

No I will not. The plan is to use perforated leather in the center but not the pattern in your photo. That's good information though.

Furthermore FYI, the rear seat on the photo looks like a Sprint GT not a Sprint GT Veloce.

Yes you are correct, my car is a Sprint GT but I like the GTV front seats. I do have the original front seats that will also get done once I get the rest back, as I'm using the car as is....without the rear seats and panels

Finally got the seats back plus door panels,rear deck,kick panel and rear wheel interior hump...I will post the rest of the pics on a later date. Looking for a seat adjusting knob. I'm happy with the turn out. Had everything done in leather. I used perforated leather for the center part....and the armrest....no I'm not a purist.

Some pics. The rear seats have not been installed due to possibly removing the rear sway bar(total suspension upgrade...winter project if all goes well). The leather is not as tight as I wanted but overall I love the way it came out. Probably with some butt time it will settle out. I don't have the chrome strips in the doors(did a search and could not find them) so double stitching was used.
