I found this construction shot which shows the underside of the console a little better (hopefully).

I'm a total rookie at interior work so others can better answer your specific questions. But from what I've read on prior threads, it is not out of the question to do an interior using a common, household sewing machine. The biggest problem will be getting the required foam and fabric to all fit under your presser foot. That is why I mentioned above that the Tacsew machine, like many other upholstery machines, have at least 1/2" of "lift" under the foot...so you can get many layers of stuff under there to sew at one time. Household machines normally allow much less clearance under the foot.
But with some well thought out design and planning, many say it is possible to do it with a household machine.

And here is the piece that covers that area. The holes are for the speakers. I have not installed this panel yet because the trim piece that holds it in place is also the trim piece that holds the top edge of the windshield in position...and I didn't want to install the windshield until the rest of the interior was finished. So that's why the area is still open in that picture.
Boy you guys have sharp eyes. I hadn't even noticed that area was in the shot. Hope that explains the mystery.

Hey CBoy& Dan, CBoy, interior looks first class to me. I've paid upholstery folks around here for work that wasn't 1/10 of the craftsmanship. Had no idea ya'll had moved in to a color debate. With my bad eyes, the colors look different in one light and the same in others. I'm thinking if i'm a shade or two or three off, as long as the color shade is complimentary to the interior paint, I'm okay with that. Just don't know if I'm that crazy about a two tone interior. The cream and black thing. Dam shame nobody has an interior simulator. Thank ya'll for getting me on the path. olnolan

Finished the head rests and installed the seats today.

|DanTwoLakes||Here's proof positive. This is another swatch card, and on this one the big swatch is "Sand".|
|01-28-2010 12:45 PM|
|DanTwoLakes||That is why there is no color name under the big swatch. That one is more to see the grain and the backing on the underside of the fabric, which is why the bottom half of the big swatch is not glued down. They also usually try to show one of the most popular colors.|

|cboy||Well, a bit of the mystery might be solved. I just got an email from Burch Fabrics/Magnificent and indeed, they do rotate different colors for their "big swatch". So it could well be that Dan's card has Buff and mine has Sand...and we all still have our 20/20 vision. Yipeeeee, I'm NOT getting old!|
|01-28-2010 12:24 PM|
|DanTwoLakes||Yes, the big sample could be any of the 28 colors and different on every card. If you saw my card, you would see that the big one is "Buff". In the first picture, it could be a toss-up as to which one matches, the "Buff" or the one below it, which is "Sand". The second picture is obvious with the big "Buff" sample on top of the "Sand".|
