Small update to share with some neat bling.
I am still going through alot of the clerical (and monetarily painful) work of getting things ordered and paid for. The upholsterer though is pretty close to complete on the seats and sent me a work in progress of the recaros. In my opinion, he nailed what I was after;
Also got my Mk.2 Trophy bases in the mail to mount these to (No pictures, they are not very interesting). I need to figure out if I need to go looking for some door cards to do white leather on to match, Mr. Driggs brought it up on my facebook feed and the idea has been on my mind before and since to get white cards like the red ones on my coupe. I will be matching the rear seat for sure, but was originally going to stick it out with the UrQ door cards because they are the only Coupe cards I have, and I don't want to butcher nice UrQ cards for my silly restomod.
I will be having a late dash, glovebox, driver's side column cover and bin, and the recaro base plastics dyed mocha by one of those mobile interior refinisher guys to maintain the brown interior the car came with and not have some black some brown. Top it off with one of the Audi Sport nardi's with the white works logo in the center spoke and thats the extent of my interior work (aside from steam clean the carpets, etc).
I am curious, to those who have converted early dash to late; can you use the early center stack with the late dash (the plastic surround that the radio, and HVAC live in). I'd like to keep this because it has matching carpet and will make life that much easier.
