Finally, the escutcheon plates, handles, drivers door panel and molding. Install the seat "flaps and bellows" which insulate the passengers from the trunk and installed the seats, tacked the trim to the package tray and installed the tray. Installed the carpet and brushed it all clean...5 hours.
The final pics are of the coupe ready for the customer to drive it home. Total time to install interior and prepare and woodgrain the 8 moldings...42.5 hours....of fun ! NEXT !

How is the lower part of the windlace as shown in photo attached to door frame?

I had some issues with my LB kit for my early 1930 coupe. For some reason the panels above the two quarter windows needed some alteration to match up with the pillar panels where the headliner meets them. It was fairly easy to peel back the cloth glued to the back side of the panels and add a small piece of backing board to make the panels fit correctly. I still don't really know why that happened but I know that there were seat frame size variations in the 1930 coupe.
