    As I got started on the seat I decided I need a cup holder. Not much room so under the seat it goes.

    I was going to ask.. but I realized they do swivel out of the way. That's a nice feature!
    Something that NEVER crossed my mind when doing my interior. Cupholders! It still isn't even an idea I would consider doing..

    Just an observation on my part. Heck.. I don't even have heat or AC in my coupe! LOL...

    Needed to bend a piece of walnut wood for my head liner. After soaking over night in 50/50 water/ ammonia and then steaming it with a steamer (it was very pliable) I than clamped to the form block to dry for a few days . we'll see how it turns out.

    Your steam bending process is great! Nice job, great results! Folks don't realize how much work goes into bending wood, to make the forms, figure out the clamping needed, then being able to adjust the plan when all of a sudden you see that you need another clamp or three and need to adapt! Nice!

    Getting things done, headliner is just about complete, need a few adjustments or it would be done. Getting this headliner started has given
    me a new boost of ambition . The Bed is compete and now I'm just waiting for 3 guys to show up and help me put it on the truck, maybe next week ?

    looking good but all that tape makes me nervous just looking at it .
    trapped solvents can give you grief . solvents are not your friend .
    i use painters blue tape. comes off easy .
