I went back again today.
She's looking real sweet Jer! Interior is a nice as the rest and whoever (whomever?) is doing the garnishes is doing a nice job as well. Will be interested in who that is at some point.
Told my 88 year old father about your signature line around a year ago, and it has been his favorite thing to say ever since. He says "that sums it up perfectly."
Nasty break, don't do that again!
Front/back carpet. Please excuse bad pic.
Getting closer all the time Jer.
Hope the elbow is healed up as well.
coming around Jer, nice
Well, it's time to prep the steering wheel, hang it out to dry and base/clear it.
Wheel looks great jer. Would you care to share the color code as all the "Ivory's" that I am looking at appear to be to yellow.
Sorry. no color code. It's a bench mix that matches the white vinyl upholstery.
Nice work on the wheel Jer - (no surprise). It belies the amount of grinding, filling and sanding prep that goes into such things.
Thanks Jer. I will most likely end up doing the same thing.
This came home the other day.

Another trailer swap with the JC coupe for a Saturday church parking lot show.
Slowly but surely, it's coming together!
I'm within 2"-3" of being where I need to be. There's glass, hood and bumper/grille yet to be installed. We'll see.
Wow really looking great Jer!!

Man that looks like the "Good old days" of simple interiors. Sure brings back some good memories.
Interior looks sharp...like the dark green
Love that interior and the chromed column and dashboard... yummie!
I really like your choice in colors for the interior, everything looks GREAT!!!!
Wow, the interior looks spot-on! Chris and the guys did good! The window garnish looks pretty spiffy too..
Did I miss where you solved your missing wiper parts?
A HAMBer graciously led me to the solution to that wiper problem. It's in the last (?) batch of chrome.
Here's the door garnish along with the solution to these type's of things.
Those garnish moldings looks great Jer !
Jer. I am correct in thinking that you had the garnish mouldings spray chromed?
If so how do they compare in looks to the traditionaly chromed dash? I have heard lots about this procedure but don't know of anyone that has had it done.
I have been watching this spray chrome thing with great interest like everybody else. All I have seen have been failure stories. A couple of months back I saw Mark from chopolds comment on having a good experience with this guy. The items will be integrated with each other (chrome/spray chrome) so we will be able to see the difference. Mark called the appearance "soft" compared to the real thing. He did mention that it looks almost undetectable. We shall certainly see.
I do know that it was the only way out of this jamb that I was in.
Thanks for the response Jer. It looks great in pics so it will be interesting to see how it compares.
What will those cost to let 'real' chrome? I also followed the whole start and technology so far of chrome spraying..just curious what the price-difference will be
ive seen a complete car painted using spray chrome few years back at a show in Vegas, the spray chrome was from, ELSA if i remember right
