    Unfortunately the binnacle is only been dyed, with what is supposed to be a very good leather dye, but only time and baked hot summers will tell if it will hold, as well as the lower door panels, the knee pads and center console.

    The real leather parts are the seats, the shifter and brake boots and possibly the upper door panels.

    However, if some of the parts with the dye donít hold its colour, I will go with a king of vinyl wrap or leatherette...

    Thanks so much for all the positive feedback!

    Here in Canada, itís our thanksgiving weekend, so cheers! 🍺

    That looks GREAT!

    You did an awesome job on this. I also had never seen one other than black/gray. This looks just super classy & well done.

    Are you thinking darker brown strap or same light/tan.

    I can't state how nice I think this came out.

    I could not blow up dash. Did you have to hand punch out for speakers, delete them or sound just through material?

    Thank you!
    I didnít touch the front speakers, the sound go through the material no problem. And after a drive, I am happy to notice not much reflection or glaring from the dash material. So Iíll leave it like that.

    I have xtra material from the seat for the pull straps, so I feel Iíll use that, but noticed that there is another material in between inside the pullstrap.

    I could see where just the standard material would stretch or not last without the backing material.

    Hope you are having a great holiday weekend.

    Very satisfied with the upholstery of the straps and shifter boot.

    Picked up apple cider for my sister. 🍎🍏

    The headliners are still light gray, and several bits in the center console remain to be done. But itís a beautiful day today to drive an old car (itís cold and crisp).

    Thank you White out and Steve! I appreciate!

    Here are some pictures of the cup holder. Il is from DeloreanGo. I pay more to have it gray, not knowing I would paint it another colour anyway later. I also put a clear coat from a spray can of high temperature from the brand Procolor, availlable in Canada. In the bottom, I glued pieces of foamy faux tan suedes.

    All the plastic part are also spray painted with a high temperature paint but importantly from Procolor. I tried VHT but it does not hold on plastic. (of course itís not made for this) But for some reason Procolor High temperature is absolutely excellent on all the plastic parts. Even pressing as hard as one can with a fingernail wonít scratch the paint at all.
