Re: 1967 RHD Canterbury pitt

Encouragement for me to start on my AWFUL Basalt grey and silver beige panels.. I reckon these as saveable but will PM for size and process details of how you fared with the New TMI material, glue and board. I may gradually make the "missing" panels myself..

Re: 1967 RHD Canterbury pitt

Finally made the front door cards. After having issue getting hold of the panels, it took nearly a month to get my money back from SJH joinery, who have now stopped trading C.A.D in full flow http://i549.photobucket.com/albums/ii383/dblenk/1967%20VW%20Splitscreen/IMG_4991_zpsvcyziwck.jpg Fabric prov...

Re: 1967 RHD Canterbury pitt

Used rear cushions in 90's inspired theme i guess, will do for now. I might not even dye them. Am missing the two smaller cushions. Hence the blue infills :lol: http://i549.photobucket.com/albums/ii383/dblenk/1967%20VW%20Splitscreen/IMG_5010_zpsoux2nycf.jpg http://i549.photobucket.com/albums/ii383/d...
