Red Interior

With the rest of the truck together the interior was screaming for attention, so I added a little touch of the present with some styling upgrades. A set of custom seats from a van shop that swivel and recline were inserted into the cab. The carpet was a shag deep pile red to accent the seats. The door panels were fabricated and covered in diamond tufted crushed velvet. A custom overhead console was also fabricated to hold the stereo and numerous other controls and was also covered with the same material as the door panels
