Looks like it's going to make a great car! I love the white with black interior combo - probably my favourite.

Replacing the roof lining is a pretty straight forward and very rewarding job. I got material from Woolies and it's not expensive.
Other than what looks like a tear in your drivers seat, looks like the leather will recondition pretty easily as well. The tear will repair well with Furniture Clinic products.
Just done both these jobs on my car. I've drafted a thread on the leather repairs, but still needs some editing. There is a small amount in my "job jobbed" running resto thread. Must try and get it finished and uploaded.
You cars going to look the business when you've done these jobs.
