It was fun teasing them...but it did take a while...things werent going back on easy...tippical bedford style..
A lot of things were a muck around especailly the sliding doors.
I also kept find things that needed painting either purple or black.
I was really wanting to do a nice job  this time round.
Cheers Wendy & Ray

I reupholstered the grey kia carnival seats year model  2000
Found the last 9 mtrs of purple fabric that the xr6 and xr8 were fitted out with...the other colurs were blue, red, yellow, orange , green and grey...so stoked to find purple 😎😎😍
Made real leather gear stick boot and hand brake boot, and also covered a trophy box in black leather to house our stero that is mounted to our dash shelf were Buddha also sits.
We stripped out the old felt trunk liner from the internal ceiling and walls sine all the dust from the paint shop made it look shabby....
We really did a full make over except the engine bay, we left it in the origianl purple acrylic paint we did 7 yrs ago...too much work was required to do that ...
