I got the carpet from Trimparts.com. It looks really good in my opinion. I may have bought it on Ebay, but can't remember, I bought it some time back.

We're planning on taking it to Huntsville Dragway on a TnT night when we get it completed. I'll post a notice when we plan to go. Maybe you can stop by and we can tell some lies. :lol:

I bought them off ebay. Here is a link to an auction that is the same seller, but all they offer is the orange or yellow trim:

I didn't see the solid black seats like I have. Back when I was looking, there were several sellers offering something similar.

Yes, but they have been recovered by a local upholstery guy. It's a black tweed-like material.

A guy in Hartselle. He is listed under Curtis Slaten Upholstery. He has always done a good job for me. He's kinda' high strung, but he's a good guy. He is very reasonable too. He recovered the rear seat, door panels and rear deck, also a did the headliner for $300. Well, I thought it was reasonable... :-k
