    you are correct; From the factory, the headliner for Nomads had the cardboard strip sewn in which when inserted into the bows held everything in alignment...

    So I'm back to working on the interior again. I re-installed it all a few weeks ago so Larry could see what he's going to have to do. I put sound deadener on the roof, and we plan to install insulation there too. I installed all the new tackstrips and located the molding and roof bow holes in them, and I installed the bows to check for fit. I finished up the dome light wiring and re-designed the console so we can assemble it inside the car, and leave the electrical stuff on the base. I installed the wired hollow door hinges some time ago and re-installed the door panel for Larry to check out.

    I also fabbed the top cover for the console and cut a small hole for the shifter for now, until I decide how to finish it off. Still a lot of work to finish everything, but it's getting closer.

    The front bucket seats and rear seats are going to have a design similar to this, with most of the seat tan and the accent inserts charcoal. The headrests will be gone and the panel immediately below the headrest will be charcoal with a "V" medallion as shown in my sketch. The console lid will also be two toned as will the sides when I come up with a design for it.

    I still have to figure out what I want to do with the cargo area. The tubs are wider than the panels I made above them, and I don't like that. So I may extend the panels inward and maybe do something like this....

    Larry got my steering wheel done that I bought many years ago when Colorado Custom was still in Fort Collins, Colorado. He tells me he's going to do the padded leather dash next, then the headliner, so I can install the windshield. I hope he doesn't take 5 years to do this interior.

    Thanks Troy, I know some guys don't like modern-looking interiors in Tri5s, but it's my car and I'll do it how I want to. The whole car is a modernized tri5 which has been the way I've viewed the build ever since I decided to go C4 suspension. Larry's getting off the hook easy imo, since I did so much of the construction work. Our deal changed with the second frame I built for him.

    I like the original-style interiors too, especially when the buckets are made with original materials. Looks like Ciadella makes some nice stuff.
