For those that didn't know I have gone full-time with my motor trimming business, if you need something done (or know someone who does) give me a call. While I am located in South Australia (Lewiston) I have a lot of customers (50%) from interstate and can easily arrange freight for all items.

Some of the gear that I make or distribute :
- Roof Lining Bows, $25 each and $12:50 for the fixing wires (as at 16/09/2010)
- I have patterns for all FE/FC model roof linings, reproduction rooflining is still a work in progress but I have access to plenty of other materials.
- FE/FC Door Trim and Kick Panel Cards in original style black card $25 each (as at 16/09/2010), other models available is a template is provided.
- Custom http://fefcholden.org.au/forum/index.php/topic,17277.0.html
- http://fefcholden.org.au/forum/index.php/topic,16465.0.html
- Knox Carpets (and their other gear) generally a little cheaper than the delivered price advertised on their website.
- I also have access to Classic Glovebox products at great prices.
- MASSIVE Bean Bags, 600-800 litres to fill! Available in Black or Beige Vinyl only $90 plus postage, other colours or styles POA.

Added June 2011.

"Stinky's Seats"... Tongue Wink Grin
Out of interest, they have(had) a brand of seats called "Shitty Seats" in the US  Roll Eyes
Unfortunately the word "Stinky" in the title has limited appeal outside of the people who know me, I found Street Trim is popular there's a place in NSW and one in the States too.

Another product I have the dies made for is the embossed/welded line on the FC door trims.
No pictures at present sorry, but if you saw Peter Mitchell's (stapla) FC Sedan at the Nats, the ones in his car were done by me  Grin
I also have the black cardboard that matches the original door trim cardboard in stock, 2mm thick.

Good luck with the business stinky, will be in need of your services sometime next year. Light blue wagon headlining will probably be first   
with rear cargo bits to follow. A question about door cards, are the wagon rear door cards the same as the sedan ones  Huh
Cheers stewy.

Thanks  Grin

To the best of my knowledge they are, I see no good reason for them to be different.

Good luck with the business.  I'll see if I can get some photos of the door trims.

Let me know if you need anything else.

Cheers
Peter.

Door Trim cards, made to order.
Better than MDF or Masonite as they flex to the door curve plus they are the correct thickness which helps when installing the stainless tops.
$25 a card plus postage.
$30 a card plus postage with vinyl lining on one side to stop water soaking in.

Boxed up a set of 4 come to 3kg, 85cm x 50cm x 1cm.
Posting from 5501 SA, you can work out postage here -

or
e-go have great trasport prices, I can drop at the SA depot to save a few bucks - http://www.e-go.com.au

Here's a set of the door cards covered in Pearl Vinyl, the customer requested stitched lines, but I can also get them pressed in as per original.

Yep, have to agree with you Kathi. GREY would look heaps better, maybe with a little Blue trim to match the plug leads Grin.

hey stinky was looking at your site and the seat that are balck and red are the same as in my taxi i just bought. I was talking to the missus (must have got her on a good day) and said Id like to change the interior completely in the custom FE but keep taxi the same. Then she said "leather would be cool", i told her its expensive. She said "yeah but u gotta be comfortable". So, just as a guide for say doing the black and reds like on your website, what would it cost roughly to do front and rear seats in vinyl versus leather in same colours. You can pm me if u like or give me a percentage more etc. My sister is at Gawler and it may be possible to get them to drop them in when i take them there eventually.

but my father in law also does upholstery as a hobby.
