    Default Small stuff...

    I didn't like the underside of the bumpers... Rough-edges, manufacturing-marks, holes. So I covered the area with a heavy-vinyl(adhesive-backed) material.

    Default Interior....

    I have sent-out the first interior panel to be covered - I intend on covering all the interior plastic. For the purists... I use double-faced tape so the panels can be restored to original:

    1) NOS matching fabric across the top
    2) New carpet (to be wrapped)
    3) Top of carpet and around latch-cover to be bound/stitched

    If this works... I'll have the other panels done too!

    Looks really good ..

    Is the FSJ in the background treated as carefully too ??
    I hate watching simplicity and reliability being ruined by bureaucracy and technology.
