Question Custom Interior

On my 86 F350, I would like to customize my interior, since my existing interior is trash. I'm not sure of what I want to would cost, but who would you typically go to for that sort of thing? I'm thinking of having an aluminum dash, and then maybe getting everything else done in fiberglass or something. Any Ideas?

If you live in an area with a few race tracks around there must be at least one shop that could hook you up with an aluminum interior. Fiberglass sounds like it would require more time and skill driving the cost up and chances of finding someone to do it pretty slim. Unless you live close to a big city with custom shops around.

Thanks Scotty, I'll call around and see what we have in this town. Seems like cars are a big thing out here, and we do have a few racetracks in the area.

hey lem...i have a good uppholsterer by me, i see some of their work at the local car show, and it looks pretty sick...thats a thing like auto paint that really impresses me when its done well...i live in NJ though, so that doesn't help you...i think you should try to restore your dash and then die it silver to match your truck...or do a pinstripe outside and match the dash to that...

wes

p.s....underglow? why not?

i would consdider leather seats. you can get some prem. leather done on your ( i am guessing bench seat) for 500-700 bucks. a friend of mine had leather put in a car, and the leather quality blows any new cars away and is nicer than any couch i have seen. and the smell of the leather in the car is amazing, almost makes you hungry for a steak (haha). i will get my truck done before to long myself.
<<wont work on seats with side airbags though>>

Check the web for shops in Boise.... you can probably get better pricing down there! As far as the aluminum dash? Aluminum sheet isn't cheap and getting it rolled to match your dash???? $$$$$$

I'd go leather too!!!

Lem, for something like that I'd go to a good size car show and try to find some cars or trucks that have something similar to what you're looking to do and then ask the owners who did the work. That's how a couple of guys I know got their paint job or interior done.

You might take a peek across the boarder in Spokane. A friend of mine used to drag race and had some nice work done to his car up there. Wish I knew who did the work for him so I could pass it on. Are you looking to re-do or replace your seats? Upgrading with newer seats is pricey, but some of the new aftermarket drop-in stuff is well worth it.

The best defense is a good offense, and I'm really offensive!
