Thanks guys!
Yeah my side trims are fading like crazy. The paint is actually peeling off them so i think i'll pick up some new ones and sand and spray them.
The boot is gonna be fiberglassed and i will most likely chuck another battery in there for safety :D
The suede feels wonderful and i chose it, along with velour instead of leather.
The crappy blue vinyl on my dash and doors is coming off and is being replaced with black velour. Trying to keep it all subtle and clean.
I am in the middle of considering a respray as there are multiple chips, dents and scratches just like any other old car. I will more then likely retain the original heritage green to keep the car as close to original as possible.

Cheers
Sam

Did the doors myself. Overall the interior is costing me around $1500 including new door trims dash and seats done.
Just contemplating now whether i should go all out and have two blue stripes in black carpet to match the seats?
The rims are apec d-lox 2. Au-> offset with adapters. $2300 with tyres.

Cheers
Sam

Spotlight is your friend!
I just took the doors apart and found out how to take the panels off and sprayed them with adhesive and wrapped them.
A nice easy cosmetic mod

Cheers
Sam
