Here s a compilation of links and such relevant to my needs, I need to consider a lot of factors when pimping the inside of the Art Car, colours, materials, paints, overall aesthetic, contrast, imagery the list is endless.
I went to see what I could find on custom car interiors : http://www.acecustoms.co.za/custom-car-interior-ideas-and-interior-customization/ the staff at Ace Customs say :
Where is car interior customisation heading in the future?
The limits of interior customisation are endless and in this futuristic age with modern technology and some amazing products on offer, you can install just about anything inside your car. Some of the installation options are massaging seats, televisions, satellite radio, surround sound, bar fridges, soft leather, champagne holders and much more can be installed in your car.
If you have the money, the space and of course access to the expertise and mad skills like the interior gurus at Ace Customs, all of these dreams can become a reality.

Whilst I do not have the Money, the space or the access to the expertise and mad skills from the gurus at Ace Customs, I do have passion, drive and equally mad creative abilities, I am pretty sure I can do the cars interior 😀
Firstly I want to be sure on techniques which may be used, I am currently looking at seating options.
The other option is to spray them, I will look into this more later, I did watch a couple of tutorials last night but haven’t found one that is honestly informative enough, so I am still looking for a video which will show more experience with the media, rather than the trial and errors I have seen.
I also looked at patchwork designs, this produced slip or loose cover imagery like this one:
Overall I am pretty confident I could reupholster/cover the seats but will discuss the project with Bonita at Bournville to see if any of the sewing students need experience and would like to participate in the make over as well as approaching the members of the community with my open invitation. I do not wish to execute the interior solo, unless it is necessary to do so, as this would exclude the community aspect to the project.
