    Guts....Interior....get it? OK, it's lame.

    Pedro brought the interior over to Alex's shop today. The blue fabric is '58 Cadillac to play off of the light blue pinstriping that will go around the panels. The white is regular old white vinyl. Ah, then there's the pearl insert that matches the steering wheel and the gauge cluster. The subtle secret weapon.

    I wanted to keep the interior pretty simple because the exterior is over the top.

    Anyway, here's this week's mini update...

    This car is turning out to be one of the slickest Starliner's ever built..
    Very nice choice of interior color's, and the added pearl is without a doubt a secret weapon..
    VERY nice Kirk..very nice.

    Simple, yet effective, looks good, the pearl in the panels will play well off of the steering wheel.

    This car gets better every time I see it!

    Right on with the interior being simple, but not too simple. Its not everyday that someone will come across and ivory wheel with matching invory pearl inserted door panels. It keeps the eye trained on the exterior, which is the cars point, but doesn't disappoint in the least when you move inside. Nice.

    Still going to try for Autorama in Sacramento? Or have to wait since doing it right the first time takes longer than planned.
