  • Interior in finished 51 Commander

    Long time coming. Finished interior today. Have a few final touches, Transmission hole cover , reinstall seat belts. Carpet went in OK, It was a little shorter on each side than I liked but worked in the end. Back carpet was a little short front to back but still looks good. Overall good for a nice driver.

      Looks nice, Jim.
      I do like the material and contrast you incorporated in to the seats and side panels. And the addition of the little straps to open the rear arm rests is cool.
      You mention that the front carpet is a little short on each side. In those years Studebaker didn't tuck the carpet under the door threshold plates. It just laid loose on top. Though I think tucking it under gives a neat appearance.
      Super job.

        I was able to get the carpet to tuck under the sill plates and the kick panels. Placing the carpet in the sun in 110degrees helps the carpet stretch a bit. The carpet is a dark grey, not black. I used the black vinyl to cover the inside firewall pad. It helps to tie things in.

              I think it looks great too. Very tasteful and not over the top. Nice job!
