Well, being that this is such a concours/purist build, the Blaupunkt CR-8000 it is "period correct" for a '73 RSR. LOL

Couldn't be happier with the interior progress and these seats. The french seams are dead straight - not easy to do with the long curves in a sport seat - and the plaid colors are perfect with the leather hides and Mexico Blue paint.

No, it's not.

More interior progress. Leather on the dash and the single piece knee pad. The ashtray delete really cleans up the lines.

These guys. Steve and Don at the Custom Stitching Company.

I knew these guys were good, but I have been super impressed with the quality and creativity of their work. I'm almost about to start referring to Don as " East Coast Tony".

They're encouraging me to go with the plaid on the dash inserts rather than basket weave. At first I was hesitant, but it's really starting to grow on me.

That's awesome that they are in Charlotte. I go down there every couple months to visit my son. I will contact them about recovering some Scheel seats.

Mark, PM me when you are coming and I will get you connected.

We played with the gauges today. FYI, the gauge surround and area over the glove box are actually matte black leather.

Oh my! Absolutely love those seats! I get so many ideas from threads like this. Thanks for taking the time to document everything so well.

Absolutely stunning. I assume the oatmeal carpet is custom as well. Where did you source that material?

Roll bar and half of the rear seat delete are in. The custom seat delete nestles up nicely to the roll bar. If you can't tell, the delete will open up like the trunk of a conventional car. Never really though the dual glove box doors made much sense from a usability perspective. We made the decisions to carry the headliner material down the A and B pillars rather than cover them in the leather. It helps balance the interior. The headliner is Ivory and really draws the Ivory out of the plaid material.
