StiffSpeed Exotic Cars

Tuesday, 6 January 2009


Interiors are another aspect of car styling that are best left to professionals if you want to achieve show winning results. However, it's not as difficult as you may think and as long as approached with logic, initiative and above all, patience, there's no reason you shouldn't achieve satisfactory results.

The styling you decide on for your interior should reflect the overall theme of the vehicle. For a genuine 'Resto-Rod' it will be more a case of reviving or re-newing the existing interior rather than radical changes to the design or look. If however, you want to lose that moulded plastic panel look used in later vehicles, you might want to re-design the whole thing into something more sumptuous.

Some of the most popular materials used when upholstering interiors are:
  • Leather
  • Leathercloth
  • Suede
  • Vinyl
  • Naugahyde
and to a lesser extent these days with exception of Lowriders and the like:

  • Velvet
  • Dralon
Whichever you decide, take careful thought. It's what you'll see most of.
