monte carlo interior

i have a 1986 monte carlo that i am rebuilding and instead of piecing together a frickin interior which ive been trying for a year. im going to cover the all the interior trim in some sort of fabric vinyl tweed suede or something else yall suggest. maybe even paint

heres the hardest panel on the car. i have no idea how ill form it into the window i cant sew and i dont think tweed will stretch that much how about vinyl.

what other fabrics/materials would you suggest

also a good adhesive seeing that im in florida and interior temps will get to about 120

Use a high temp contact adhesive like DAP landau top and trim adhesive, or 3-M #08090 super trim adhesive, both of which come in spray cans or in bulk if you have spraying equipment.

You should be able to get most any fabric with a little stretch to it to form on those panels. Stretchy vinyl or leather or ultraleather or tweed should work fine.

This picture is the driver's door trim molding from a 47 Ford coupe. The covering is a stretchy vinyl glued on with DAP.

You could also paint it with SEM products, like Classic Coat, Sure Coat, or Color Coat which would be by far the quickest and easiest as long as the panels are in good shape.
Good luck.

there sun baked to hell so they got that nice powder to them. theres alot of sanding to get them smooth but i guess i could paint them.

is anyone familiar with slicksand and plastic i use slicksand on all my fiberglass projects. i would probably need a hell of an adhesion promoter.

i will have to by a-pillars whenever i can find them for less than 100 dollars.
