I see what you mean about the color not matching, but thankfully it is all there and not half eaten lol. If need be you could always have it re-stitched with the proper tan color, plenty of that to go around in the world thankfully and it would only be that little section you need, cuts down on the cost.
If you are worried about it matching, you can always scrub or steam (sometimes both lol)the interior to brighten it up to a newer finish, but from your pictures it already looks pretty good so hopefully it would not need a ton of effort.

Fingers crossed the weather gives you a break
The end closest to the door is an engine stand I borrowed from a buddy of mine. It's built way over kill, and he's had it at least 20 years now. It normally sits up higher yet when the casters are on it. I'll have to get you a pic of the other end, as it's got a gearbox with a crank handle to do the spinning. It just clears, as I've had rolled it over several times, just to make sure it cleared. But yes, it's home built, and not very little.

As for the rear seat back, I've got no problem with it not matching. It kinda goes with the 350 I paid for it theme. I might find a tan cover some day, if it starts to really bother me. It's not a show car, just trying to be a reliable daily driver once I get things fixed like I want them. Eventually I want to take it on a road trip, but I've burned 1 tank of gas in it (after I found the fuel tank leaking), so that's my immediate priority...get it fixed. While I'm in there sway bar bushings and end links will be replaced too (already have the MOOG brand here). The only real bonus on this car is the paint looks fairly decent. Yes it's got key scratches, and other scratches in the paint, but it's also got some rust in front of the wheel well arches (right behind the rear doors), and the lip above the license plate on the trunk, being the bad parts.
