<VV> Paint Verses Upholstery

I currently have the interior out of the '65vert.  The interior metal (but 
not exterior) has been repainted.  Half of the fuzzies (interior side only) 
have been replaced after the paint job.

Next step is to clean and transfer over the metal trim from the old door 
panels to the new ones and get a few pieces from Cal - like glove box 
cardboard and a few rubber items where the door is supposed to seal against 
the A pillar.  CA car - rubber turned to powder in Sacramento.

Later, JR
