A little blast from the past to this little job that was carried out on both these classic early 90’s Ford Falcons. The following photos are a couple of Before & After shots of the immaculately maintained green machine, and how it’s headliner looked, to now how it now looks. #excessinteriors #cus#customriors #custom #interior #interiors #auto #autotrimmer #autotrimming #autoupholstery #mot#motormer #motortrimming #motor #trim #trimmer #trimming #general #repairs #generalrepairs #headliner #roofliner #ford #falcon #spack #factoryfinish

Not all weeks include custom work. Some days are made up of general repair work that’s often left unseen. Here is a customers Ford Territory roof liner being restored to its original state. #excessinteriors #cus#custominteriors #custom #interior #interiors #auto #autotrimmer #autotrimming #autoupholstery #mot#motormer #motortrimming #motor #trim #trimmer #trimming #general #repairs #generalrepairs #headliner #roofliner #ford #territory #factoryfinish #thumbtacsbegone

I had a customer call up about his 1985 VK Brock wheel in need of attention. Not only had the leather aged with time, but the foam had separated from the frame itself, causing a common rolling/loose effect. The problem areas have been stripped from the frame, and will be reapplied/rebuilt and retrimmed to an original-like standard. Stay tuned. #excessinteriors #cus#customriors #custom #interior #interiors #auto #autotrimmer #autotrimming #autoupholstery #mot#motortrimmer #motortrimming #motor #trim #trimmer #trimming #lea#leather #handstitch #momo #steering #wheel #steeringwheel #leather #restoration #vk #brock #commodore #holden #hsv #hrt #hdt

The fibreglass grafting and reinforcing of a customers Ford Cortina TF grille into a Ford Cortina TE grille. I've maintained the outer frame of the TE grille, and cut down the bigger, bolder TF fins to suit, before eliminating any/all dead weight and glassing it into position. It'll now have a tougher first impression to match the cars engine notes. Now it's off to the painter to receive a once over and some paint.

Another Momo steering wheel saved. Retrimmed in Nappa Royale leather, straight stitched to mimic the original stitch, but hand stitched to ensure it doesn't pull apart over time. If you recognise the signature, feel free to shed some light with a comment, 'coz I've got no idea who scribbled it 😂 #excessinteriors #cus#customriors #custom #interior #interiors #auto #autotrimmer #autotrimming #autoupholstery #mot#motormer #motortrimming #motor #trim #trimmer #trimming #lea#leather #handstitch #steering #wheel #steeringwheel #black #leather #momo #nappa #grind #revived #restored #signed

With the amount of steering wheels I restore and work on, it wasn't long before I grew a soft spot for most things Momo. I was able to purchase this original classic woodgrain steering wheel that was released in 1985, but still presents like new. Very often you'll see these wheels drastically faded, split, or showing signs of wear throughout the clear. To clarify, I HAVE NOT restored this wheel, simply purchased it. #excessinteriors #momo #woodgrain #steering #wheel #steeringwheel #classic #vintage #oldschool #softspot #afeelforthesenses

The latest set of seats to be repaired, modified and completed. Black Nappa leather, combined with yellow carbon piping, and black Alcantara suede. The hexagon pattern through the inserts also flows throughout the car, and is a compliment to the cars grille (a predominant feature for this model) #excessinteriors #interior #interiors #aut#auto #autotrimmer #autotrimming #autoupholstery #auto #upholstery #mot#motortrimmer #motortrimming #motor #trim #trimmer #trimming #design #application #black #yellow #carbon #leather #suede #quilting #hex #hexagon #grille #rotary #badge #powered #13B #Mazda
