Dash & Interior Modifications

I am at present looking into having my GTS Dash slightly modified and possibly a retrim of the interior for my HZ. Being a new comer to the world of car restoration I was wondering if anyone had contacts in melbourne that could help me.

I would basically like to re-vamp my dash lights and taco sets so that they are more visible and attractive than the standard hard to see green. Is this possible and does it require expert attention or is it possible for a home job?

Thank-you.

Try Sunshine motor trimmers, they have dome some quite good work and are local to me, they have done the award winning interiors for the coupes from the Hoppers Stoppers shop, particularly Peter's 32 Victoria, made from a Tudor.

The car is fantastic inside as I saw it while talking to Peter about a brake conversion for the Sandman.

They do top quality work, though I haven't used them. I have just ordered my originak Sandman trims from Eastern Auto Upholstery as no one else does them as "originals" in any part of the country that I have been to.

Heya,
When you say original Sandman trims, are you still talking interior, or can they supply Sandman Decals, I'm looking at Replacing my HX van with an HX Sandman.

No Krum,

Fletch who was on the Fastlane site made them, I can't quite remember how to get in touch with him at the moment. I had asked him about them before (12 months ago) and he still had them. Are you trading up to an original sandman, or changing your current van into a "mock" Sandman?

As such, Eastern only have the interior door panels.

Well what do you know, I come across this response to my post from nearly 3 years ago!

Rach, Eastern do change overs, so if you took the seats you wanted out and went in there, they could change them over for you if they had some made up. Best to call them and make sure. You can call them on (03) 9720 5444.

Cheers,

Webber
