I'm glad I'm not the only fool thats gonna dig velour interiors til the day i quit lowriding. Everythings like "its old and trashy/ghetto now" just because stock interiors are easier to have any shop do for you.
i get pissed when people at work call stuff by the wrong name. I call it 'plush' interior and everyone knows what i mean.

I swear if one more person at work calls vertical stitches in 1/4" scrim foam a 'tuck n roll' I'm gonna beat someone

I hate when people call it too oldschool... coz then i feel like saying how come your rolling on 13's then thats oldschool.. and why you got hydros thats oldschool too.. doesnt make sense to me. People that call this interior oldschool should get airbag suspension and big chrome wheels just so they dont contradict themselves

it looks good props for doing it yourself but are you useing one solid color you need somthing to seperate the color to make it stand out at least the pipeing should be a lighter color

:) It's all good homie yeah it was never really finished. I'm currently adding light blue coffin tuck and welt cords all over to cover up that gold. I was planning on posting the updated pic's in a couple of days when it's done.

Alot of people call it "piping" it's the little round cord that goes in seam usually a contrasting color. Welt cording is the old term, it came from it resembling a welt after you get whipped. :biggrin: Sorry for being all technical, I grew up in an upholstery shop. :biggrin:
