I’ve been working on the interior over the last couple weeks. Cleaned up the rear kick panels and installed a 12v power source.
Cut out and glued in vapor barrier for the rear quarter panels.
Ashtrays for both side because chrome is cool!
New padding, covers and carpeted back for the rear seat back.
Rear seat base refreshed with all new bits as well.
Rear interior done.
We will build it if it comes.John JonesKeymasterOctober 31, 2020 at 9:10 amPost count: 7415

Out of the compound WOOHOO!!!!! Thanks for all the patience & support JJ & Franz.
