Great Interior restoration reference!
This book started with two critical areas that most books don't: Where to find the best restoration parts, and, What tools will you need. The remaining chapters covered the entire interior plus the convertible top, in a step-by-step manner. Dozens of clear pictures for the main steps, and also for many typical issues you may come across from prior, incorrect repairs. Many of these concepts transfer to other cars from that era like my Chevelle.

This is a step-by-step guide to restoring Corvette seats, carpeting, ragtops, and door panels.
Great photos. Even if you're not about to start such a project, it is very interesting. Whatever you're working on, this book will warn you of the myriad ways to screw up things such as cutting holes in foam.

This book is perfect for anyone who is working on a corvette or is simply a lover of corvettes and would enjoy a beautiful book about the car. My husband and myself were so impressed with how thorough this book was. So many beautiful pictures and easy to follow instructions for every aspect of the interior. This book is worth every penny. Aside from the wealth of knowledge on each page, the overall quality of the book itself is wonderful. The book is big and has a nice glossy finish which also makes it a very nice display book.… (more)

I love these books! I'm not a "car person" per se, but I think these books are so easy to read and understand! He provides such honest comments that I trust him without thinking about it. I think anyone working on a corvette should have this book!
