    Believe or not, he told me that was his next item to do. I told him ... YES! he said he had a friend with a 77 r/t that needed some things that seemed impossible to find - HELLO- Hopefully this will be good stuff.

    That is cool.

    I'm surprised no one came up with a SMC plastic or fiberglass cover for the console lid. This fix for cracked or split leather lids is common on Vette's.

    I've heard ABC's parts are excellent quality. Console lid? If/when they become available,,,,,,,,,my order will be on it's way! Mine LOOKS pretty decent, aside from it being all lumpy, but it's got a few hours of work in it to get it flat again. Still can't for the life of me remember how I did it other than it involved a couple blocks of wood and clamps, the hot summer July sun, along with a couple tubes of super glue. It started out looking like a "U", lol.

    There was a bunch of chatter about sending him a good console lid a couple years ago. I have a few nice flat ones. But they are all lumpy on top too despite being "flat".

    Pad came today.... wish I had a way to post pics but it looks GREAT. Pliable, padding is great, color is great although If your like me, this car has a couple of variations of red due to sun fade from sitting in a carport, it may only match 80% ( or a percentage) of your interior, which I believe is to be expected with colors. Can't wait for the center rests.....

    Even when the cars were new, all the interior pieces didn't match exactly. Usually hard vinyl (aka plastic) was a slightly different shade than soft vinyl (like the seats) and cloth parts may have been a little different also. No different today on new cars and trucks. Like you said though, sun fading makes the difference more.
