I’m replacing my original red interior on a ‘75 PA28-151. One Piper enthusiast referred to it as “whore-house red”...

Some rug scraps, lots of wall panel vinyl, the seat cover fabric & vinyl. Most of it is still in good shape and servicable.

If you’re trying to limp along your red interior with repairs or do a restore with the vintage flair in mind, these might work.

You can order a fabric sampler from Airtex that includes many color choices. I suspect they could match the fabric facing, vinyl trim look from the 1970s if that's what you really want.

I already have my new interior. I went with Shelby at TNWings. He was faster, cheaper and more flexable than Airtex.

The red interior is my old interior, in case anyone trying to limp along their vintage interior needs it.

I'm in the process of putting a new interior in my 74 PA28-151. Has same red interior. I've got the old interior out but haven't installed the new interior yet because I can't decide on colors and style. Do you have any photos you can post? I'd really like to see some photos of nicely done PA28's with new leather.

Call Shelby at (731) 658-7422. I sent all my panels to TNwings to use as blanks for my new ones. He’d prob just have you pay for shipping
