Interior is also one big renovation. Leathers were in very bad condition. I’ve changed all set of seats. I made custom leather wrap on dashboard, airbag and shift knob. Still have to do steering wheel and door side panels.

Driver seat was very used . Airbag doesn’t look good too.

Old vs New (full leather)

Handmade leather wrap. I think it looks a way better.

Dashboard before wrap. With repaired crack on passenger airbag. Dashboard was damaged by sun. I bought and bring car from Africa.

Dashboard after my wrap. Looks way better.

I have question. If anybody have the same issue as me with ripping out leather on door side panels?

I will use the same leather as I used on dashboard soon.
