    Outstanding work, I love it. Those gauges lit up are a work of art. Interior turned out beautiful. I like the Lyon caps as well.

    Slim38 thank you. I will post some pics this week. It’s been raining, so I need it to stop so I can pull it out.

    Okay my buddy Robbie hated the look of the ignition switch. So he made a little cover in 5 minutes. Haha. It turned out great. I wish I was as talented as he is.

    Peanut, it’s not. Since I already had it chromed we just used a key that fit into the ignition to hold it.
