    Some final pics of the interior. As you can see, even door edges were covered:

    No pics of the trunk yet as it was full of stuff :LOL: I hope post some pics soon.

    I received this week new parking brake assembly and '70 rear bumper moldings with backup lamps included, that I will use as turn lights, but I have to study how to do it right.

    Thats fantastic. It looks like the interior of a new car or maybe better than new. You should be very happy with the results. Keep it up and give us more pics.

    Im very happy with the results. Price just a little above other shops budgets but its really worth it. They do many classic cars every year and some customer (compulsive collector) has brought them more than 20 cars.

    Thanks. Apart from the improvement in look, even driving is more comfortable, as front bench was sunken before resto. Soon trunk pics Yesterday I went to a Classic American cars meeting at an open air cinema; soon Ill upload them in the "Post a pic of your RWD caddy" thread

    Thanks As I got the car at a low price (for a Europe located caddy), it left me a fairly good budget margin to leave the car in a good condition without expending more than its local value. A good upholstery -if the rest of the car is acceptable- increases the car value noticeably so I did not want to save too much with this part of resto... But I know that a good part of the decision of buying this car is sentimental and maybe at the end of the restoration process I will have to swallow my words :LOL:

    outsider, you are doing a great job considering what you have spent restoring your car. In addition, you have done everything by yourself; its something to be proud. In my case only little things were done by myself as I have limited experience on mechanics and no one who could help me, so I had to pay professionals.

    Holy crap, the interior turned out amazing!! It's pretty remarkable what new interior does to improve the look of the car. (Just like a great haircut)

    What's next to get done??
