85 GW Champagne Metallic

This one should be here either this week or next. Haven't had a gold one in a while. Can't wait.

I ordered some corduroy samples, trying to get as close as I can to the original. Still not happy with any of these, but running short on options.

This one has been on hold for a little while. Last night tho, I did get around to finally matching the interior colors so I can refinish the worn trim, armrests and make one of my consoles to match. After trying a lot of different cans, I finally found an almost perfect match or Leather, Vinyl and Plastic refinisher. What do you think?
(the plastic piece is the original and the armrest part is the refinished piece).

looks good jim,...

that will be a nice wagoneer, ...gold is cool.

i have seen that ribbed fabric before

when i was looking for alternatives,....

you know, the caravans and voyager vans of the 80s/90s

used very similar, if not the same, cloth inserts as wagoneers

i wonder if any of the new old stock suppliers has some for vans,....
.......worth a try.

Nice work, which technique, the rubber wheel or the heat gun?


And for the armrest which paint reference number did you use?


Thank you

Jim, do you remember which paint color you used for the arm rest? I desperately need to do that with my faded Honey arm rests.

Thanks!
