it really depends on the type of fabric you will be using as to the method needed.

I just had my interior done in dark green microsuede and leather and the lady that did it couldn't do the rear panels. She said there were just too many curves. She would have to sew a lot and it would end up looking awful.

Now I'm just going to fiberglass them. :D

I agree w/ Jon. Too many curves equalls too many stitching seams.

well i did all of mine myself with furniture upholstery, its duraplush suede that is used by Benchcraft, it is manufactured by Culp Textile Co., but anyway i covered the vertical sides first then cut the peices for the horizontal peices and folded and glued the ends over. then glued them in place on the pillars over the edges of the vertical sides... it turned out good. this is the only pic that i can find but i will take better pics and post them when i get off of work

here is the link to my cardomain site... it shows all the pillars and the shift boot

That suede is kicking. How much would that material cost for someone who isn't in the industry? It looks great.

the stuf runs about $250 to $300 a roll... i am working on getting connections to be able to order it... i hada friend pull some strings to get mine... if i can ever get it lined up i will let you guys know but there is no promise that i can pull it off.

I used 3M High Strength 90 and then came over that with a layer of 3M Super 77 to help it stick quicker.

I had no problem doing the c-pillars and i did my whole interior by myself while i was on crutches with a broken femur
