    Sure looks good...i like the detail's..
    And like the others have said, that floor looks great!
    Believe it or not, that was the first thing i noticed :).

    Nice too see the use of wood down there instead of tin all the time. Especially when it looks so nicely done.

    i was a bit loopy last night and couldn't get a good picture of it..

    It is a key fob my Dad picked up at a swap meet years ago...It normally resides in Regret (the Sedan)...

    The alum. part was machined in the tool room to the exact specs. of an orig.

    anyway, here is a decent picture of it, and a few more random shots.

    everything works well together, the wood floor , the color, the dash, even the trans tunnel, it all adds up and makes the whole package COOL!

    Nice job! Can't wait to see it complete....

    That is an absolute PERFECT hot rod interior... You can't do one any better than that. Period.

    Everything is just very well thought out and finished appropriately. Just perfect.

    that all looks really sweet!

    The bushing is silcon(sp) bronze, the drop was a stock Auburn drop...but we cut it up and added an inch to make it work!...that's always fun..hehe;)

    here are some pictures I took tonight, before the paint kicked in:D :D

    Awesome. It has the feel of a car that's really important and has been preserved as such. An elusive, intangible ideal flavor in my opinion.

    It also kinda' reminds me of a WWII fighter cockpit. The semi-finished wood floorboards and sort of zinc-chromate-like color give it a P-51 Mustang vibe, without slavishly aping that machine's details verbatum.
