    Corvette Interior Restoration Corvette Interior Restoration

    No matter how nicely the exterior of your Corvette is detailed, a complimenting interior is needed for the car to look completely finished.

    An interior makeover can do wonders for any Corvette. It can make a good car look outstanding. This 78 Corvette needed an interior makeover.

    The seat covers and dash looked excellent but the rest of the interior needed attention. Zip Corvette was able to supply everything necessary from large items like the door panels and carpet right down to the smallest pieces like interior mounting screws. Restoring an interior does not take a PhD. You do have to have some patience and a full set of common hand tools but the results are well worth the effort.

    Let's get out our tools and start that interior makeover.
