I can't express how much I love this! Genius idea to put the woven matting in the interior!

Thanks! The interior was that way when I got it from FreakyTiki. I'm definitely continuing the tiki theme though.

Another gratuitous driveway shot...

What mods have you done to the car yourself? I'm debating doing something similar to my classic Mini.

Personal Statement: Avoid the clap
Saw a guy at a show a few years ago, that had done ghost tikis under the paint. He'd found the stencil, and laid them down under the color and however many coats of clear he had on it. Couldn't see them until you got up close, but the effect was amazing. Figured if I ever get a bug, I'd try to figure out how he did it. I love the interior on yours.
