I was talking to my dad yesterday about this and he said his school teacher had a Mini and her Mini was sponsored by Levis and they put the decals on from boot to bonnet as a zip with Levis down the side he said it looked cool but I've never seen one with its interior in jeans it really is unique, can't wait for more pictures!

I'm sure there was a VW Beetle Denim special edition back in the 70's or 80's with denim seats and door cards etc.

Flying cd's lol, rear quarters have been re cut and fit perfectly now, making a 2nd set just in case.

Would be good to see pictures of Beetle with jeans inside also.

Peugeot released a special edition of the 205 Cabriolet with a denim interior in the early 90's, but I think that was the seats itself

Cheers.

It should look mint once finished, cant do the roof lining tho, would be too heaving, dash is next after the cards are finished, and other little touches as well

I really like this idea, and actually thought about doing this myself,

my old dear used to have a beetle with denim, seats, when she told me about it i thought it was a very cool idea.

Good Work!

I think it was a "Wrangler" edition, though rather than Levi's, but may be wrong, i'll have to ask her

Cheers for the comments, I am making some more rear quarter cards Mk3, so if you would like a pair then you can cover to your own style let me know.


Its easy to make a template, just get a couple sheets of fluted board and start, keep doing it till it fits, then copy the patten on to wood.

If I can do it, anyone can.
