Re: Upholstry

Ken Door panels should be easy, Mine have a stich line about 2 inches in, otherwise plain. Other interior panels should be simple, just follow your patterns or pics and should only go one way. Now the headliner is tricky, hard to line up stich patterns on a curve, and to avoid a saggy look. Also getting the right kind and amount of padding can be a challenge when doing the seat cushions. I put leather in my rumble seat cushions, so you don't want any expensive 'do overs' there.
