    I welded up the seam that runs along the bottom of the body line that continues from the door onto the bed. The bed is originally in 3 pieces, top bottom and tailight, I welded up the tailight seam and the top bed seam but had to make that top seam flow the same as the door...Not sure I explained it very good:eek:

    Ok, I went a different route, repainted the interior with a Chrysler crossfire silver blue metallic and added a black metal flake to bring out the powder coated trim pieces

    Also got my seat back from the upholstery shop. I accidentally bought a seat cover for a 67-72 seat, so the shop had to cut and sew it to make it work
