classic 87 "Rainbow" Upholstery

Recommended Posts

Just bought the 87 with the "Rainbow" interior (only 588 hrs!) the wood needs to be all rebuilt. The floor and wood frames are being done this weekend but need to know whether I can save and re-use the original upholstery and or does it exist in some warehouse somewhere?? thanks for your help

jaker,

you might also think about replacing the cushion foam with the new/modern stuff while you're there. I did the same project years ago and it really made a difference. It's a little thicker. Getting all the materials through Chee was a lot less expensive (and better) than local upholstery quotes.

Just got power back from the storm! Thanks for reaching out, I'm having them striped now and was considering using the old because it will dry out. I'll ask about new. thanks...
