That rear seat looks like really good, when you looked at fabrics, did you come across any that looked like the Black interior ?

Need a full interior Wink

Nope, it's more difficult to find something close to the non-plain velours. I know it's possible to source something close because
AE86PreservationSociety (a more professional 86 upholsterer) posted up something that looks quite similar, but I havent come across anything
similar so far myself.

Got the rear bench done. As first attempts go, it's not too bad, but I did mess up a bit. The bench top ended up a few cm's too wide, causing me to run out of side bolster around the ends left & right. Just took it on the chin because I didnt want to pick it all apart again, it was quite a task to put together. I suspect this also causes the slight looseness around the seams at the front. Will know to look out for this next time.

Great going and it looks very nicely done! Thumbs up!
I haven't heard from the AE86PreservationSociety before, but they sure have interesting tutorials on their Youtube channel!
