That interior should be in my car, minus the piping and vinyl on the top of the door panel.

Standards look like this. I don't want a new interior until I decide what I'm doing with the car. I have since put new vinyl covers and new fabric store panels. The old interior was pretty gross. I am not responsible for the duct tape.

It should be an exact match. My car still had the original cloth on the rear seats and it looks exactly the same. Lenny gets the cloth from Germany.
