79 S & S Restore

All upholstrey pictures, just looking to see the original design of the upholstrey. I bought mine used and the upholstrey is not original. I would like to restore it to the original look. Any photos would help. Thanks

Here are some pics, there might have been some variations in interiors that year, my original had stupid buttons on the seats and motor cover that rusted underneath with time and popped off. I did away with them. This new upholstry is as close to the original in color that was available.. I do have a backseat but leave it out most of the time. Hope this helps...

That is funny, I have the exact same boat, same color. Thank you for the pictures. Did any of the S&S have the stars on the upholstrey in line like the engine cover? Your boat looks like it is in great shape. Did you have it repainted or is it all original paint and gelcoat? Thank again for the photo's.

In '85 it was considered a premium option (though, most opted for it), so it may have been the same in '78/'79.

I have never seen stars in a row on the engine cover, like I said earlier, mine had stupid buttons in a row on the middle of the cover that all popped off.

Thanks for the compliment on this boat, it was repainted, I worked dilligently on trying to restore original gel coat, just to far sun faded, so I painted it. The black metalflake stripe around the hull is original and looks like brand new....
