Guys,

I could really use your help.

I have acquired a 79 10th Anniversary Trans Am from an estate sale and pulled it out of a barn where it has been sitting for 8 years after restoration.
It's 90% done.

New paint, new drivetrain, brakes, lines, exhaust, etc.

Needs some electrical, matching T-tops and Dash area.

Here is the great but the odd thing.

Instead of painting the interior molds a factory color, someone stitched leather and glued it over.

The leather is silver like the seats and looks good!

I'll insert a few pictures.

What I don't know.

Does this detract from the value or add?

If it adds to the value, should I pay for a leather Dash from Justdashes.com for $1400, or get a factory vinyl Duplicate from eBay that uses new molded vinyl for $1000?

I'm new to this and want to spend my money wisely.

I'm trying to get the most value for my car when I am done.

Does anybody know where I can find the 6 knob set for by Anniversary TA?

Man are they hard to find anything at all.

Thanks!
