Very nice...not sure about the wheel though. Where you have no other wood in there it looks a little out of place to my eyes. Normally when you have a wooden wheel there is wood in the dash or doors to tie it all together. Just my POV of course. Love the seats and door cards though. 2thumbs

Decided to try a black vinyl grip insert (same wheel).  I like the black better.  Nice to be able to change out the inserts with just 6 bolts instead of buying a whole new steering wheel.

Headliner install is next on the agenda.  I ordered some extra retainer clips today.  I kept the liner stored rolled on a carpet tube past few years so no hard wrinkles to get out.

Those trim clips need to come out David. Check my thread, headliner starts on page 22. Make sure you put screws in every hole for mirror, visors, coat hanger clips, seat belt snap. That way you can easily locate them with a Phillips to make the hole and put the accessories back in.

Been looking at my options for rear window trim. Some were here http://www.dodgecharger.com/forum/index.php/topic,19852.0.html.  With $899 for AMD repops, I decided to try and make my own one piece stainless trim.  I finished a template today of a one piece and after I finish getting it mapped out and converted onto a dxf file, I'm hoping to get a metal piece cut, refine it some, and see what I can come up with.  Anybody else do something similar?

Got it traced and cut out.  Trimmed it all out to fit and next to figure which way I'm going to use to clip it in hopefully using stock window trim clips

Thanks. Getting it buffed out to a mirror finish has been tough.  It's some hard stuff.  Trying to get all the scratches out, anything finer than 500 grit paper is futile for removing material.

Done with polishing.  Not a 100% mirror but not too bad for now.  In hindsight I would have been better selective of the 11g sheet to start off with.  There's a lot of reflection from the garage in it.
