    I've been on here for a few years, but... I've got some down time at work, so... thought I'd start a little build thread for my car... lol

    here's a pic of when I got it

    slapped some '56 caddy wheel covers on there

    had it half ass painted satin black

    thanks... got it back from paint, put it in the garage, slapped a cover on it, haven't touched it since... kinda sad

    need to paint/install dash, rebuild carb, and get a windshield, then I'll get her out of hiding... lol

    ok, I know this thread has been slow going, but... I'm ordering the carpet this weekend... it's down to these choices. I'm most likely going with the 80/20 loop in either -

    black
    [​IMG]

    charcoal
    [​IMG]

    midnight blue
    [​IMG]

    or

    dark blue
    [​IMG]


    I know most on here don't care, but... I appreciate your opinions... you guys have more experience with most of this crap and I'd like to pick something that flows and sort of ties the outside color in with the interior, w/out being bright ass blue (i'm colorblind as well, so I can't tell them apart)... lol

    Well, the 80/20 is most like what came in old cars.100% nylon is a little more durable,but looks more like a level field.Cut pile is a plusher look.I've sold and installed thousands of yards of carpets in my career.Good luck Jack

    I like that idea... I was thinking about doing a two-tone similar to this one, but there's just something I don't like about it

  22. I say midnight blue for the carpet would look great. Black would look boring. Just my .02

    Great project and I know it's a pain in the butt... keep it up.. they really knock 'em dead at the drive through when you're in a '62
