Head rest/parcel shelf
« on: 11 April 2020, 07:50 AM »
Details of refurbished head rests and parcel shelf. Used vinyl dye on the head rests as it was very badly faded. Would have liked it darker but that was the nearest colour available. Pity the the seat top has faded so much but that is for another day. Pleased with parcel shelf as that is entirely new. Previous owner had cut through it and the metal to fit very large speakers. Finally opted for the "whipping" edging as tried the sewn vinyl which did not look good. It is a little higher than original as I incorporated 10mm of insulation.
