Ok folks here's my story:
I bought a 72 SB back in May for wife. It was in decent shape with a little rust here and there but not bad, probably because it had spent most of its life in FL and HI.
Anyway, we weren’t too happy with the very poor paint job and knew if we didn’t deal with the little bit of rust, it would grow like cancer and the work would be much much more if we wait.
It’s now at my local guys body shop almost ready for prime and paint. He said it might be ready as early as Monday so I stopped by the upholstery shop that I have the seats at and WOW this guy knows his stuff. He’s an older fellow who’s been doing this for almost 50 years and he loves old bugs so he was almost as excited about doing my interior at I was to get it done. Needless to say, when he offered to do a complete custom interior to include headliner, new door panels, all seats, kick panels and carpet for $800… I handed the guy $400 cash and struck the deal. I had seen some of his other work on a hotrod or two but he is going all out on the seats and door panels….. All custom fit and stitched from high quality materials this guy is amazing and I can’t wait to get it home and put on all the other new parts I have waiting in the garage.
Ok enough of my Raving…. I’ll post some pics after the paint and all gets done.. I just wanted to share all my excitement with you folks…..
