x2. i just didn't want to look stupid and get ripped on. the whole thing just looked nice so whatever they are i figured they were some pretty part of the car that he probably just re-did. thanks for being a better person than me and asking. now maybe we'll learn something.

Oh haha Im sorry. Mickey mouses are a slang term for the white walls. There the porta wall inserts, Aka mickey mouses. Sorry for the confusion. And by the way, theres no such thing as a stupid question. If I never asked questions in here, my car wouldnt be running

i knew it! while bonus points should be deducted for me being a wuss i did compliment you on your tires just in case that's what you meant when you said mickey mouse. they are sweet.
now when you say "insert" what do you mean by that? they're still just big ole tires with that pretty white stripe on it right? (obligatory stupid question, but i really would like an answer.)

Looks like you could check the fit of the padding under the seat covers. They look like the fit is a bit "baggy".

Other than that, nice job!

The funny thing is that I cant afford good seat pads at the moment. I covered the springs with very thick and soft material which will have to last for the next week or two before I can order pads. Oh and Im not sure what the name of the paint is. It was a sample at the place that painted her

Better make your Photobucket account private before people check out your other, less appealing pictures:
