Finally got the car back,

I think paint job looks amazing

Been so long that I need to review every single picture I have when I took it apart

I am cleaning up all the parts as I go but so far re used all original parts.

Need help with the interior got a big budget for this part ; )

I was thinking ordering everything form Auto International and go with leather . never done a interior before and I know the top will be hard for me to do it but how hard is to install the kit from them? and how is the quality ?

My carpet kit and interior are from Auto's International. High quality. You might want to have a pro install at least rear seats and door armrests. Dick Weiss knows a good interior shop near Cincinnati,Ohio and I know a good one in Metro Detroit. I am sure there is a shop that knows 356s near you probably. Maybe ask Eric Wills of https://www.willswerks.com or Bruce Baker http://www.bbakerent.com for interior shops in your area. I think that you can send your top to AI and they will install and send back when done.

Hi Antonio, I searched this thread and did not see any mention of using the Precision Matters dipstick thermometer to measure your (oil) temps:

Interior order is placed ; )

Getting everything from Auto international , I went with black top , headliner gray and rest all black

The more I put the car together the more I love the idea of leaving all the chromes original showing the age, after little cleaning they still shine

Pile is getting smaller but I am enjoying cleaning up and learn more about 356 ; )
