    I decided to run the wires inside. I should get it all tacked together tomorrow.

    Got the gauges back in. Still needs some work, but should look good after I get it covered. Lots of wires in a small space...

    No more 80's anodized red valve covers. I tried the eastwood anodized remover save your money doesn't work. Did it the old fashion way with a wire wheel, took for ever. Then added some subtle pin stripping.

    Got the nerf bar welded, painted, wired and mounted. If all else fails check to see if the light bulb is burnt out.

    It is just a type of screw... My buddy made a jig to bend coins and then we solder the screw or snaps in the coin.

    A buddy of mine gave me some left over carpet that I tried to make the most of. I knew it wasn't enough to cover the tunnel so I had to come up with something else. I diamond pleated it with some light weight headliner foam. The diamonds looked good but I wanted more shape with the foam. Never giving up that I could use the carpet I bound all the edges and looked pretty good. But I was short on the sides and behind the seats. Because I cant seem to get anything done on the first try here is a picture of the Interior that is now in the trash. Better luck next time.

    I decided to slow down and do it right... So I had to add some sheet metal behind the seat to cover some dead space. That is the old carpet that was too short.

    I’ve been trying to figure out how to box in the back seat area and the rear deck lid. It took me a lot of trial and error and each pattern got better and better so this is what I can up with.

    I’ve got the Lexan ordered for the rear windows, then I’ll make my final pattern… The Jute for the next layer on the floor should be here this week. I also ordered the old school Trinidad carpet. Not cheap at over $80 a yard…
