I've admired your level of thought and execution throughout this build. Seeing a notification that you've posted something new always gets me excited to see what you're up to. But coming here today and seeing the car for sale. Sad day indeed. Projects like these take an immense amount of time, research and money that you will probably never get back. Hope the new owner can appreciate that. Best of luck with sale.

thanks man, much appreciated.. i'm really not happy to sell.

$85K - if it doesn't sell soon, ill send it to paint, hopefully by then i can find some long term storage that doesn't cost 2k+ a month.

Sometimes it's better to cut your losses and sell cheaper,if you can't get someone to keep it for you free. I put a boat in Peakes when I bought my new boat, ended up paying rent for three years before I realized it. Cost half the price I sold the boat for.

Not selling... car going to get AC installed, insulation, new door rubbers etc, new windscreen, paint, then rewired engine bay and alarm, maybe even some music.

Inspiration for the interior (and close match to the Porsche Graphite Blue I am thinking of painting the car)

Now ordered a bunch of stuff

Here is the leather I am looking at for the outside of the seats, arm rests and top of door cards

Here is the basket weave stamped leather for the seat inners, door cards and rear hatch, and lower dash

The brass grommets

Black dash skin (not that mine needs it, but it may use it if I decide to do the lower dash in the basket weave)

really inspired by the singer interiors
