Been working on this for a few years now and it's 98% complete. Probably going to sell it soon to make room for another project

Jim,

That is a great looking restoration. I envy those of you who have that skill and talent along with the tools and space to work on these rigs.

Yes I agree, that is amazing! Any tips on how to tackle a project like that? Where did you learn to upholster so well?

I'm not that skilled. New England Trim (Shrewsbury, MA) did the upholstery and headliner. By the way, I have more of the flooring if anyone needs it.
