Finishing the Interior of the 1956 Corvette

On Friday, June 22, 2012 I finally took the 1956 Corvette to Sickel's in Escondido so that they could finish the interior.  Everything in the interior is either white leather or blue to match the Nassau Blue of the exterior.  Edward had previously done masterful work on: covering the dash rail, covering the seat frames, and fabricating and installing custom carpets.

Friday's goals were to fabricate and install the door panels and kick panels.  We started at 7:30 AM.  Nothing on the 56 has ever been easy, and little obstacles popped up all day.  Finally at 7:30 PM we were done and I drove the 56 the 20 miles back home.

Special thanks to Dan Schrokosch for fabricating attach hardware for both the shoulder harnesses and the door pulls!  And to Felix of Sickel's for all his support over the past few years!
