Everything up front Im going for the OG Kombi look, original seat material from the US covers fitted, meanwhile in the rear overhead clad in Oak, due to the rubbish quality of the cabinet latches available had to make one from a quality bog latch.

How annoying.... I spent ages getting leather samples, ordered a hide. Then when the seats were trimmed the chestnut was a bit too red for what I was looking for.

Since then seen several they look great better, yours being one of them....

Are they a plastic door card or the wood / pressed card type?

Did you plastic line them?
