    Understand your question....I am not going to install a headliner....I prefer the look of the finished wood ribs in a hot rod.

    I used to run those tinted clear plastic fuel lines 'cause they looked cool (as did almost everyone). but they supposedly represent a much higher risk of fire hazard. I decided it wasn't worth it....

    I haven't abandoned this project but chemo and radiation is interfering with progress. I'll get back to it soon as I can. Hope to have it VIN numbered, registered, and on the road this summer.

    Keep the positive attitude and good luck with your battle with that dreaded cancer! I am a 2 time cancer survivor and am still able to get some stuff done, although it takes me much longer to get thing s done now.

  16. My best buddy has one more round of Chemo for lung cancer. Seems like each new round another level in him drops and takes longer to recovery. He said his cat is jealous of how much he sleeps. Take your time and heal up first.
