While the rear skirt is awaiting further cosmetic work - I refinished some pretty neat factory option overhead speakers that are designed to attach to the lip of the roof at each rear corner.

You are going to have on sweet Civic when you're done! Those speakers are a great find!

Looks great Bob, How did you get the guages back to blue and where did you find some NOS hub caps?

That's the way the gauges came. I just gently cleaned them up. I found 2 from Kid in the Netherlands and 2 from Civic Duty. Slowly, it's coming together. :)

Spent the day removing the rest of the old woodgrain, preparing the dash for the new woodgrain and installing the gauges.

Are you asking about the gauge covers or the gauge faces? The faces are a lucky find. The covers I made from plastic and glass. Currently have the glass ones installed.

Is your carpet new? If so, where from did you get it. My car is heading for the upholstery shop in a few weeks and I will be doing the carpet at that time.

QD, I ordered the carpet from Aardvark one of the ebay guys. It's not a bad fit but not perfect either. You just need to be very careful trimming it out.

BTW: I really need that file soon. I need to get that done and on the car. :)

^^^ Gotcha. That's where I was looking to get my carpet as well. I'm waiting on the guy to resend the file through E-mail. I lost mine somehow a while back, just realized it and sent him the message. As soon as I get it, I'm forwarding to you, sir.

I'm gonna be putting the black Honda rubber mats over the carpet. If you do not want the heel pad matched to the carpet then you have to mention that when you order the carpet. I did want the heel pad to be black to match the original but did not know it would come blue to match the carpet. I'm O.K. with the blue heel pad now but took some getting used to.
