    Been putting this thing together as the new work ute. Only a mother could love the way they look but what a great thing to drive.
    Getting it a bit lower then she's done.

    The drive back to Melbourne from the pick up in Byron (thanks Kim) was a ripper. Went like a train on the open road. Couldn't live with the original brown interior so ripped it all out and started again.
    Perforated Black Nappa leather inside and a thorough Dynamatting and she's a pretty comfortable thing.
    The three speed snortamatic is amazingly smooth.

    Looks great in black. Did you replace with black trim or repaint.

    I love those door cards. Is it possible to get a set made for my 1989 T3 Caravelle in black except the diagonal stitched section in material to match my Recaro seats. I have the Recaro material already.

    I can't take credit for the styling with the diagonals. That's straight out of 911.

    But yeah of course. Sounds like a great idea.. Using your cards or newies from scratch?

    New from Scratch Also need cards for the sliding door and the panel opposite plus the 2 next to the seats. Could you PM your details so I can call to discuss. Have you ever dyed the OEM front carpet from a Caravelle, I want to change to charcoal to match some new carpet and my carpet is in great nik Phil

    Now Brad,

    You just know your awesome work on my seats just won't "cut the mustard", without a new headliner, don't you?

    And making 2 is so easy when your already making 1...;)

    PS. Driver's seat will be on it's way end of the month...when I get the chance to knock up another box for it. :)
