    I had been thinking of doing this for several years , so i finally decided to go ahead. I knew i wanted Tuck n Roll but didnt want it to "in your face". I had seen Busbys 5 window 32 and really liked the simple design so we tried to stay as close to that as possible. Steve at Limeworks hooked me up with Franks Upholstery in Whittier. After speaking with Frank and finding we are both the same age{70} i asked him where he learned his trade....where else but Tiujana !!! Not only that but he started in the same shop that i used to go to as a kid. So here we are 50 some odd years later and he is the one doing my upholstery.......dejavu?? Anyway i am thrilled with his work and thank Limeworks for their help in getting this done.

    It's always a pleasure being involved with friends like Randy & Barbara , as I said to Randy today he has nailed his coupe & I cannot think of a single thing to improve it now , the Perfect Hot Rod hiboy A .

    All credit to you Randy, you have a great eye for Hot Rod Perfection.

    PS Barbara's Stromberg 97's just hit my desk :)

    Thats a "Aristocrat dash Panel",originally made in the 30's ,mine is a re-pop,but the guy who was re-popping them doesnt do it any more. A few are floating around ,but getting pricey.
