Default My Lemke Interior Comes to Life

It seems like ages ago that I began the process to design a new interior for my new-to-me RV7 that I acquired in February. I selected Lemke in Germany to supply the interior and spent quite some time working with Robert to help me with the design specifications. Next came the wait in the production que before I could see the transformation from artist rendering to the actual product.

Well, today was the day that I got my first look at the interior...all I can say is WOW! It should look fantastic once installed... I will follow-up with that RV grin photo when the job is complete and I have flown some long legs to test out the comfort factor. For now...looks = 10/10.

Interior looks great. Do you have a paint scheme that you are matching it to?

I had my seats made at Flightline Interiors and they did a great job, and was always interested in getting side panels to complete the look. I am not far from you in a Chicago suburb so the winters get cold so I'm curious if your side panels have any kind of insulation or sound proofing.

Default Interior is matched to original paint by Glo

Ken,

The aircraft has a beautiful paint job by Glo that I matched the red and blue to as closely as I could from the Lemke stock of BMW leather and Mercedes-Benz carpet. I will let you know how much insulation is on the side panels when I get them. We can certainly get together sometime so you can have a close look.

What's their current lead time between design finishing and production starting?

I was just quoted 33-35 weeks, presumably from order to shipment. I think the actual manufacturing doesn't take nearly that long; there's just a big backlog.

That is about what my lead time was...the fabrication for my interior took just under a week.
