Arturo's Aircraft Interiors did an excellent job. They took care of all the details. Some that I hadn't even thought of.
Prior to delivery, I flew up and met with Arturo to pick out materials. I chose a dark blue leather (looks lighter in these pics) for the seats and side panels. The headliner and window trim got a white leather with a blue tint. For the floor, a dense pile charcoal gray carpet fit the bill.
Arturo painted all of the plastic trim below the windows. Instead of paint, all of the plastic and metal trim pieces around the windows wer wrapped in the same leather chosen for the headliner. I'm not exactly sure how he pulled that off, but it looks 10 times better than painted trim.
The seats were completely rebuilt from the frame up. The side panel inserts were cut from sheet aluminum (no more cardboard!).
Overall, I couldn't be more pleased with the results. The plane not only looks brand new inside, but it smells like new too!

(The new stuff)
The side panels are now firmly attached to the walls and no longer threaten to interfere with the flight controls. Note the refurbished trim on
The armrest well and even the lower air vent was spiffed up and painted.
The seats were taken down to the metal frames (which were sanded and painted). The new seats have new webbing and all new foam with
excellent contour for the lumbar area. They look about twice as thick now and are much more comfortable. The stitching on the leather is
The rear seat looks great. No more stuff falling off the walls. I would be proud to have passengers back there now.
The headliner and rear bulkhead look great. The old headlinder had water stains from leaky antennas and if you pushed on it, your finger
would go right through. In this pic, you can also see the leather wrapped window trim.
This pic shows the baggage area with the new carpet. The lower rear bulkhead also has a new battery access door.
