View Full Version : my 87 prostar interior???
12-09-2009, 11:02 AM
I just bought a 87 prostar. Needs a little love but the price was right.
I have seen some of the original interiors and they look good. But like things a little custom.
Should I keep the same scheme on the interior or bring it up to date. When I sell it some day I don't want problems because of the interior.
What do you think?

I'd go for whatever catches your eye, as long as it isn't too crazy. If you sell in the future, there will be very few people who would know if the upholstery isn't exactly "correct" to the year. Most of them are on here, and most of us probably won't be looking to buy! Joe public won't care, unless it's way out there, or done poorly. I think the scheme changed almost every year from 1987 through 1990, even I have a hard time remembering which ones are which. I'm slowly re-doing mine, and I plan to change it up a bit as well.
Post some pics, and good luck!

I would say keep it as stock as possible if you are thinking of resale. Just my opinion, but in my experience stock sells better than custom.

Don't forget about Lenny at Leading Edge. Did a great job on my boat.
And this thread has my before and after photos in it.
Good luck to you.

I've heard good things about Leading Edge. I called him yesterday and he called me right back.
I need to start with the motor then move from there to the cosmetics. I think I'll look around at the boat shows and find some dirrection.
If this were a plus 40K boat I would say keep it stock, but it since it is not do what you want. When I did my boat, I took things I liked MC did over the years and incorporated them in the boat and some ideas I saw on this site. I think it is all done tastefully and I like the way it turned out. I say do what you want and enjoy it. Probably the guy who will by your boat in the future will dig it too.

I met with Leading Edge yesterday. They have some of the older MC vinyl. They also can get newer vinyl that they say has better developed top coats that make it better than the older vinyl. You should see the carbon fiber vinyl they have. It's pretty sharp. Lenny has some great ideas for the my interior that will keep the original look but jazz it up a little.
They also have some great heavy wieght carpet.
Can't wait to get the engine work done and get the interior started.:D
