    The seat have now been re trimmed and I'm pleased as punch with them. Barring a couple of small items the interior is pretty much finished. I thought it was fitting that the first person to sit in the car since it's arrival here in the U.K should be the owner......I think he's a happy man.

    I have a PPG paint scheme at the workshop so I mix the paints and tint accordingly as required. Any Mustang parts supplier can supply the dash pad, and for 64-65 there was only one red available.

    thanks for the reply phil, but i was lead to believe the interior red should have a satin finish rather than gloss, do you know if this is true. have you the initial ppg code.

    I always finish the interiors with a satin paint. I believe this is how they left the factory. You can buy a satin clear lacquer in a rattle can if you wish to use a base and clear coat as I do.

    Finally the 65 is moving under it's own steam. There's only lifter that refuses to pump up so they set will be swapped for "another" new set, but at least it's moving, steering and stopping when I want it to and I must remember to close the trunk lid when driving lol....

    For the first time since the car was imported, the owner has finally driven the car. There's still geometry and some minor jobs to do before the car goes off for an M.O.T, but it was nice to see him drive his Mustang for the first time.
