(If you did see it... can you tell ME what I did? Indifferent)

I have decided to go after the Pink Panther build first and want to duplicate the diamond tipped, tuck and roll upholstery. I want to hear all your techniques, every idea, there's no wrong answers. I do want it as close to actual satin as possible.

Meanwhile I'll start on the engine and frame and add progress to the other thread. The reason is the season!


P.S. I'll tell you all about the move as the build progresses. You won't believe it.

Looks like the pattern could be done using 1/2 round Evergreen strips. For the colour choice, maybe search paint chips 'till you find something close!?! Bill.

Some sort of pearl addition may give you the satin look.
