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 JonesModeratorOctober 31, 2020 at 9:10 amPost count: 11223

We drove this home today!!!!!!!!’
Bumpers still need to be body worked and painted, along with a few other this and that’s to adjust and tidy up.
Out of the compound WOOHOO!!!!! Thanks for all the patience & support JJ & Franz.
We stopped by Mamaw’s on the way home to show off a bit.
We will build it if it comes.
