interior prep work
Hi All,

I'll likely have my (custom) interior done professionally, but what could be done ahead of time? Should I make the door panels and side trim along with fasteners? What material? I'm thinking 1/8" plywood... What about door seals? My old '47 Ford has been apart so long I don't remember what the seals looked like. In fact, they prolly were already gone when I got it. I'm using aftermarket hinges in non-stock locations so new seals will prolly need to be made from scratch, is this something an interior shop would do?

:welcome: Before you do anything if your going to have it done by a proffessional Shop, you should consult with him, he will advise you of what needs to be done and what should not be done making it easier on both you and him. There are many issues that can save you money in the long run by doing this. Some people unknowingly create problems for the shop which, will cost them more money then job should have. Designs, materials, extras like consoles, insulation, etc. are all factors that need to be considered, and there are many more that can keep cost down or up depending on each job. So contact the shop you are comfortable with, if you know their work quality all the better, if not ask for references, examine their work, and get their input as to what you want, and costs. Good Luck
