I'm in the middle of doing a complete interior job for my 1967 6/260. I've taken a ton of pictures along the way and will start a story line here if people are interested. What I've done is nothing new but it may spark some ideas. Let me know...
Oh yes, we want your pics and story. Thanks for offering, we all will appreciate it very much!

Need help? Let me know!
OK. I have tons of pics so I may look at creating a link for people as opposed to trying to download them all here.
Good idea. Thanks VERY much for making the effort
Here's a first attempt to see if this will work...
great photos!! And your work is impeccable ! When you "vinyl wrapped" the plastic panel overlays how did you do that? It looks great!

That was my first attempt ever at vinyl wrap. Lots of lessons learned. But it actually wasn't too hard. A little bit of heat and some stretching and pulling and a lot of patience. The great thing about vinyl is that you can keep pulling it back and fixing a tough spot. And if it is totally jacked up, no harm. Just pull it off entirely. The prep only requires you to clean the surface with rubbing alcohol so it is still in it's original condition if you have to remove the wrap.
wow, thank you, this is headed to the magazine, I'll be in touch.

The same vinyl material used on the seats. I learned how from this youtube video....
In retrospect I wish I would have used real leather and I may go back and redo it someday.
Hey Kurt, thanks for the post. I have to go look at the video!
Wow. I am impressed. Great job.
OK.....folks. Here's the final chapter. Enjoy!
Wonderful job. Now you need a vacation. Excellent work
