Default Victoria interior progress

This is what I have gotten done on my 31 Victoria interior. There is a lot of fitting to do. Lots of trial and error.

It looks like you are doing a very good job.
Here is a picture of my Vicky's interior to compare against

Very nice...Yes I'm jealous
I have no interior to speak of
My door panels are cardboard (I tell people the most expensive part of my interior was buying the refrigerator)
I covered the seats with cheap remnants, no headliner (you can see the chicken wire)
You are doing a great job, I'll be ready in maybe one or two years.
On the plus side I do drive it about 3K+ miles a year.

Bill, I'm curious is your Victoria an early or late model 190A?

Mine is a May car. Flat fire wall, steel back.
Last time I had it judged, it received 439 points.

Very , very nice job. I'm still working on my cut and sew interior. Very slow as I'm somewhat disabled. Lots of in and out trying to get the panels cut. My old interior was very old ( not original) so measure one and cuss twice.

Art,
You are doing a very nice job, And when you finish the restoration, I hope you will be able to really tour with it. That's what they were meant for.

The Chicken wire will make it a PERFECT Chicken Coop, in 41 YEARS from now!--LOL--It's called RECYCLING. Uncle "Mutts" '32 Dodge went from Family Sedan, to Irrigation Pump, to Chicken COOP, to Scrap Yard.

That makes me think of my six word obituary Mrs. Lucky has already written; "Art's dead, old car for sale"

You are doing a great job on the interior. A lot of work to get it done properly. BTW the woodgraining on the window is very nice.

I did the woodgraining in mahogany using the Grain It Technologies supplies. The base coat is a color mixed to match the paint chip in the Paint and finish guide. The ink for the woodgrain is Grain It's dark mahogany, and the pattern is stipple mahogany. The Grain It people are great to deal with. Thanks for the compliment. Art

Your 190A is looking good Art! I agree, putting a 190A together has a lot of trial and error. I cannot thank Bill Cilker enough for sending me pictures of his original 190A. My 190A is also a May Steel-Back with a flat firewall.
