It's been a while. But I was able to finish cleaning the carpet and headliner, and to install the new (used) seats from the parts car. The rear and passenger seats are in awesome shape, but the driver is only so so. The driver seat from the parts car had rips in the side bolster, but the original seat back was fine. So I swapped them out. It works for now but I will still be hunting out seat skins.

Thanks, Mark.
Next project is rebuilding the door panels, but that will have to wait. I have a big Capri project coming up next :D
