The Knight Rider Interior Collection

Postby firebirdta84 » Tue Apr 03, 2012 8:29 pm

Hey guys,

Having recently finished a complete OEM camel tan interior, I find myself with lots of fabric scraps left over. I'm thinking about offering complete sets of fabric samples in the correct colors/fabrics, so it's easier for people to get the right shades of tan for their conversion. I have enough material for about a hundred sample sets.

The 5 piece set includes:

-1982 Parella cloth (Front and Rear Seats)
-Piping (Front and Rear Seats)
-Vinyl (Lower Door Panel)
-Headliner material (Headliner and speaker covers)
-Carpet

Cost is $5, free U.S. shipping. If you are interested, let me know!

What a great idea! This would surely come in handy for those just starting their interior or redoing it. I spent about 7 hours looking at hundreds of sample books the first time I did my first KITT interior. I liked it so much, I did the exact same scheme again on my 82. This would be a real time saver for those looking for authenticity.

And...Joe, you have a PM.

Will it say where each sample is from? Or where to get it?

I've made this an Ebay auction to make it easier to purchase:

No, you are on your own for that. A lot of the fabric I've had for a long time and some I dont even recall where I got it

does anyone have any pic or instructions on how to replace the interior door panels. I tried today but could not figure out how to get past the lock and door handle.

Hey Joe, how have you been?

Just noticed you do not offer international shipping on ebay.

Any way we can work this out?

Awesome Idea Joe!! This is Really going to help everyone out needing interior help. One thing though.....what is the fabric/cloth that is on the upper door panel - where the L trim and door handle is? I know it has a particular type of cloth fabric almost weird feel. But I do know its not the paralla cloth or the fabric for headliner, so what is it specifically? Is it still made? Any and all info on the above will be most appreciated I am sure by all.

The correct upper part of door panel is parella tan. That is the accurate fabric. However most people who buy new door panels use sandstone which is what hawks recommends which is the same material as hawks seat covers

But it can't be the same stuff as the seat fabric paralla. The paralla has the little black lines in it and its a smooth feel. The upper door panel fabric has that sort of lengthwise bumps in it.

I don't know, I do know that my car did not come with the PMD seats, and if it didn't have them, with the parralla cloth, there won't be a stitch of that cloth anywhere else in the car. So I suppose that if the car had that style of seats from the factory, then there's a good chance that it also had that cloth on the doors as well.

Thanks, I did check it out but I also know first hand that is Not the same material. How do I know? I bought the paralla fabric Billy had on ebay and you can tell from a OEM door panel 82-84 that the two do not match in material type or looks or feel. You can feel the raised version on the door panel but the paralla seat fabric is smooth feeling or a slight fuzzy feeling but not velour type of fuzzy feel.

Parella is found on the door panels and the seats, the EXACT same fabric. The upper door panel material changed in 1983, to a lighted, almost plush material, similar to the hawks cover. It's as simple as that.

In 83, the door panel material and the seat material changed.

So if your upper door panel material is the lighter, plush material, they didn't come from a 1982 trans am.
