I am currently working on installing my frends interior on a 71 XKE OTS.
I thought that this would be the easiest task. Well, for those that have done this, you know nothing is easy on these cars! The interior seems to be most difficult! I installed the wheel wells and rockers with the thin foam, then the vinyl. I dont have a sprayer, so used a foam brush. While I took my time and it looked good when I finished, the next day I noticed an uneven “look” to these “signature” areas… Small air pockets and also seems like the foam did not stay level, which made the vinyl “sink” in areas. So, I tore it all back out. This is a redo.
Questions… does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to position the wheel well vinyl and then glue it down? Glue the thin foam down first, then the vinyl, or glue the foam to the vinyl and then glue both pieces down? Does anyone have pictures of them installing the interior? Any tips and tricks that you could share?
My friend purchased the entire interior kit from OSJI, so the pieces look very well made!
Thanks all for your help and comments.
