    Stitching costs $ if you hire it out. Flat panels and the right foam are a DIY kind of thing. I have around 2k into it and it's nothing extra fancy.

    Thanks. That looks like a pretty straight up task. I have dry fit to the axle tubes and had to get wider U-bolts for the 12 bolt tubes on mine. Think it is also Firebird.

    What size are the axle bearings? Kinda looks like a truck axle to me. Van axle even in the 12 bolt uses the 1.44 axle bearings. At least on my 65 it's that way.
