Carpet was from Late Model Restoration and was about 130 I think. It was totally worth every penny and so far the best purchase in the project. The floor mats locally were 125 just themselves!

I just finished testing SEM interior paint for a match on my saddle tan interior for the parts that cannot be replaced readily. It can be seen here...http://mustangforums.com/forum/detai...ml#post7952904

Yesterday I came home after getting temporary tags and 3 hours at the DMV and found a new present from UPS Claus. Rewrapped steering wheel The rewrapped leather part was fine. The vinyl part of the wheel and everything else was kinda nasty so I spent about an hour cleaning it up. Today I pulled the old steering wheel and mounted the new one. Here's the action

Oh no! How am I gonna drive this thing?! hehe

This is some bad wear and tear. Looks like maybe old steering wrap was used and peeled off at some point tearing the leather to shreds.

So here's the cool part. I didnt tell my wife this showed up. It was bothering her worse than anything about the car. I took the nasty old wheel, wrapped it up in the shipping box and put it on the counter. When she gets home tonight, I'm going to tell her she can open it because I've been opening all the new stuff and she hasnt had any fun. This should be a blast

Thanks! I appreciate the feedback guys. My fingers are crossed that the seats will be done today. They are going to look awesome.

The last thing Im looking for is new seat belt receivers. The old ones are pretty janky but Im having zero luck running new ones down.

PS - The look on my wife's face was classic when she opened the "new" steering wheel box and the ratty old one was in there. For a second I thought she might have crapped her pants.

85 to 95% done depending on how you look at it...I'm going to get the rear seat re done too, but I can drive without backseats. Couple of other little things to be done, but finally was able to get out and drive this! My wife and I drove for about 3 hours tonight.

And here's the action baby I'll get some better quality pics as these are from the cell and using the flash too, so these pics are pretty lacking, but you get the idea.
