never in my collecting i would repair someting, brain is sutch a handy man that shaires his knodlidge i gave it a go myself

the only thing that had to be done was restitching the rear visor
as the both ends were stil in place i did not remove those stitches
i even left the trim on it but when i had to stitch underneat the trim i removed it and passed it ,then put it back in place as it held the visor in place witch made it easyer to stitch the rest of it
the only thing that is a litte bit of bothering to me is the interior
it is fragile, the toplayer is verry brittle
any ideas on how to fix that or leave it as is

i am sorry not to have mutch pics to lead it to the end
i was to exited to start it that i forgot to take pics

either way for a rookie i did wel

Excellent job. Looks original.
Personally I would leave the interior alone.
