Restoring the interior
We are changing the color of the carpet to black.

Carpet ordered from Eckler's Corvette parts.
Luckily while waiting for the new carpet to arrive I found
some leftover carpet parts from the installation in my 1975 Corvette.
That way I manage to finish the rear hatches. Now they are nice and black.
