    Thanx so much for all the kind words!!! means a lot!!! haven't been doing much on the cadillac since i finished the floors and firewall, my father in law took over the garage and is building the interior. :)
    he asked me not to post pics until he's finished, and he doesn't like to show his tricks of the trade, i can respect that . All i can say is it's built out of different types of wood, metal, fiberglass, etc..... the design is nothing i've ever seen before...... My wife is pretty stoked!!!!


    Thanx again guys!!!!


    Marten, gonna send you my adress!!!!:)

    It keeps looking better all the time. I'd be talking your father in law into stitching up some matching duffel bags to put in the trunk as I'm afraid that the way the trunk is setup regular luggage will end up scratching the rear panel up real quick. That is the only thing I'd have done different on the car in that I would have run the deck lid all the way to the back and not pancaked it. I think you will be cussing that decision on the first road trip you make in the car.

    It's all so space age which I think fits in perfectly with the rest. You're proving yourself once again to be a Super Hero in the metal world. It's the Kosmic Kahuna (Silver Surfer aka Noran Radd reference....former comic book nerd)
