Oxblood tuck and roll. I had some good support and tutelage from Nate at Vinyllux Upholstery.
And, it's done. Tomorrow Trent Sherrill is going to take some pictures of it. After that I get to drive it around and not worry so much about scratching it.
And a Corvair mill to boot ! Love what you`ve done !
Crazy work you been doing, looks real cool and you are very talented!
What a fantastic & well thought out build! Great display of skills and nice looking ride. Do you have more pics or the car to share after paint?

Amazing build,congratulations on a job well done! HRP
WOW WOW WOW!!!
So no gauges at all??
Can you show us the finished engine compartment please?
How's the ride - I would think pretty nice - huh?
Nice build! Last time I saw that it didn't have paint
HOLY CRAP! That was amazing! When you started I was thinking 'What the F***?"
You nailed it without going to The Dark Side
WOW just WOW. You sir inspire me to keep at it!
All your work is amazing! Especially the tubing work around the windshield and passenger area.
"Tucker 53 Speedster" . What a great vision and execution of a build. Looking at the build pix @ 1st I didn't know where you were headed. The Corvair power plant was something that totally threw me off. My thought is how is the engine gonna stay cool as the Vair's hood was vented in order to remove the hot air out of the bay?
Looks like its doing just fine. Great work and truly unique craftsmanship and ingenuity. .
WOW dude that thing is CRAZY COOL!! I'd love to see it in person. Great work, you have some mad skills and an out of the box imagination. Bitchin!!
I'd been hearing about this thing from Lucky1974 ever since moving back to MN. At first I had the same thoughts as many on here, but your execution is incredible. Well done Noah.
You just made my 6am morning coffee taste even better. It's refreshing to see a completely new take whilst still not letting go, that will no doubt inspire others.
YOU sir, have no fear. Very inspiring!
Of the almost 12,000 cars at BTT50's yours is the one I tell people about! Out of 12,000 cars you came up with something original, different, and very well built. Hats off to you and your creativity. Brian
Wow! gotta say, the first couple posts had me thinking "Oh jeez, this isnt gonna end well" but once you got rolling you really hit your stride! DAMN!
Check this guys profile, says hes a 35 yr old bicycle mechanic!
Super proud to have you as a friend and be next to this build. I know what you sacrificed to build it on a shoe string budget. It turned out awesome. You were smart to wait until the end to start the posts! Hahaha
Maybe I didn't read it, but you should mention EVERYTHING on this build was done by you. THAT'S what is even better!
Mind blowing, you and your ride.
As if I didn't already have enough reason to consider myself to be a slacker.......
you sir are a true craftsman I was one of those people who thought whats this idiot up to but im so impressed well done
One bad ass build. .
