Really appreciate your work. Very stylish and very period. Porsche should have done as good

maybe take the supports off and put new, longer tubes in?

- find one where the tubes are a slip fit in the supports

or where you can buy the supports alone & make tubes?

I don't think your idea would be welcomed by my dog, so mine will be flat (if I ever use the piece of hexcell I have to make one...)

I decided to change plans for the look of the release knobs on the door panels. Instead of matching the dash knobs, I thought it would be better to match the window crank knobs. I happened to have some window cranks left over from a Vanagon Syncro project. They are a very close match, and should work out nicely.

I may use the chrome escutcheon between the vinyl and the knob as added trim depending on how it looks when I mock it up. The cap shown will be inserted into the knob once installed.

Started on some of the vinyl install. Wrapped the rear seat delete luggage/storage box. It still needs some tweaks and adjustments, as I'm not completely happy with it yet. I went with a color vinyl that is very similar to what the car left the factory with. I will most likely also change the black out as well to match the gain of the new tan. The carpet will be tan German Square Weave with the same vinyl used for the binding.

I also plan on changing out the brass ring pull to chrome.

Today I worked on finishing one of the door panels. I'm not sure if I'm going to keep the armrest black or dye it to match the vinyl. I also noticed that the weave insert is just a bit too short. There is a small gap between it and the top door trim that will need to be addressed.





Last week I fabricated a aluminum trim piece to frame the door on the rear seat delete storage box. It's getting closer to being finished. I need to smooth out a few wrinkles, and add a couple more tweaks.

Those door panels really do look sharp. Well done.

Very nice. What material did you use for the door cards?

I used plywood that is about 3/16 thick, I got for free at a local wood supply shop. They use it to protect veneer plywood sheets during transport.
