heres a 32 ford I just finished ..... the material is allante, color is lt sand, door panels, head liner, kick panels were all padded with 1/4 inch closed cell foam to make the designs...... keep in mind now, I do this just as a hobby and this was the first time using closed cell foam to make these designs...... the head liner was made of fiberglass and removable..

Well you're very good at your "hobby"..... very nice workmanship. Is that an N&N body?

The chrome on the door panels are rivets? The chrome on the panel below the rear window are the tops of snaps?

Thanks guys for the compliments.......... I always try to do good work at whatever I try...... 327..... not sure what type of body it is.......and Thank you but I am still learning with each job I do but I'm still a roofer by trade always have been probably always will be ( full time roofer since 1980 )
Dan..... the things that look like rivets......hmmmm.... dont know that their called..... they have 2 flat legs on the back of them and work like a kotter-key, make a hole, stick them through the hole and fold one leg left and the other right or up and down, ever how you stick them through the hole and yes.... your right on the snaps at the back, good eye Dan.....

I like to see someone that can do a killer interior as a "hobby". I am starting to "hobby" at this myself. I have already done one for my 1926 Ford Roadster, getting ready to do a 1939 Chevy coupe next. Makes me feel like I can do it too...

Thanks lawless1 !!! and you can do it too !!.... my dad has a 39 chevy business coupe, its silver and we did the interior in black and gray, made gray inserts in the door panels, gray stripes through the back with a bowtie and even made a back panel and 2 side panels in the trunk with stripes and a bowtie..... turned out really cool...... theres a wealth of knowledge here at this site and if you need help, you can get it here..... good luck and just ask if you need help or advice

Thank you 57 !!! and you sound like me, do it, then look back!....lol.... my wife says "if you can see it, you can build it" and she has always said that I am one who can see it!..... and I've been blessed by being able to do most anything I have tried, from driving winning late model dirt cars, building some really cool street rods and even to being able to buy old houses, and fix anything in and on them....... I have about 60 different plaster molds and I can take one of them and just see endless things to do with it, so as far as any designs, they just seem to come to me and the closed cell foam has opened up a whole new world to me inside a car.
heres a few pictures of just some of the ideas I have came up with in my home........ cant wait to see what else comes to me in a car
