I did this custom leather Corvette interior with leather braiding for my friend Doug. It's a 1977 coupe. I did the bucket seats, door panels, dash, and window moldings, T top, visors, steering wheel cover and a few other accessories. I haven't seen it in a long time, but, I fondly remember getting to drive it. The owner use to come to Bemidji for a week-end and he'd swap cars with me while he was here. I wouldn't mind going for a spin in it again. We worked on this together. These pictures were taken on at least two different occasions and, in some of them, my work is not as far along as in others. This is the same Doug that owns some nice braided leather duffel bags that I made.
Notice the leather side molding that the seat belt attaches to, behind the seat, in the picture below. That piece is very long and has indentations that the leather nicely formed to. I notice that the back window molding is not yet done in this picture - it too was covered with leather. I like this picture though. It shows my braidwork so well.
The picture below shows a piece of the original flesh colored counsel top. The whole interior was that color. This panel has been replaced with a nice wooden one that is shown in another picture below.
The leather covered Corvette T-bar is shown below.
The steering wheel cover is shown below. There are four braided knots on it and a laced splice on the back of it.
Below, the dash pocket.
Another thing I notice not finished on some of these pictures are the door handles. In a picture above the wood grain on the door panels is finished. This whole leather car interior looks even nicer now that it is completed.
