Nice work and a cool project. FWIW, be prepared for sticker shock when you price interior work. Quality interior work is expensive, but not as expensive as shoddy work.

That is very nice work, and it means that the whole interior will probably be custom work. It all depends on what material you want the work done in, what all you want done, and how fancy you want it. A bow type headliner is a lot less expensive than a custom "hard" headliner. Two fancy bucket seats are more than a plain bench seat. You need to be more specific to narrow it down.

basically Like the cars I see on shannons websites the higher end cars . so the full meal deal basically . but I will have all the panels made other than the headliner . so in other words if aluminum is alright to use for the panels I will make those unless some other type of material is better ?

Shannon Walters (Interiors by Shannon) and Shawn Krist (Krist Kustoms) will get at least $10,000 for a custom Ultraleather interior like that, and more if it's leather. Are you talking about making aluminum door panels, kick panels, and package shelf? Not a good idea. Let the person doing the interior do the panels out of what they normally use. I don't know if Shannon has changed to PVC foamboard for panels yet, but Shawn has.

You need to let the person who does the interior cut his or her own panels. If you're paying 15 grand for the interior, the panel board of their choice will be included. If you do it wrong, you'll just be out some more money, and they'll have to cut new ones anyway.
