Re: Fawnzie

Got the seat back today. Super happy with how it turned out. They removed some of the padding so it's not so tall. I also have the Full Custom Fab lowered seat rails.

Re: Fawnzie

The seat will really fit nicely with the paint choices.

Show us more of the interior, dash and other custom choices you are making.

This site does not give much in regards to folks interacting with the the builders but I am interested.

Thanks Robert. For the interior, the dash will be pretty stock looking. I am running the new Dakota Digital RTX-64C instrument cluster. I have the stock '66 radio for it but it wont be functional. It'll just light up when the lights are on. Running a full bluetooth system for sound. I have the panel that houses the Accuair controller in the dash and also the factory A/C vent where the ash tray goes. I also got a shortened tilt column from Kev's Classics and had him shrome it. Running a Mooneyes steering wheel to give it a bit of a 60's custom look. I'll have more pics of the interior as it gets finished.

Re: Fawnzie

That seat material looks cool. When I go to a vendor site all they show is super close up's, surprised the sell any like that. Looks great.

Re: Fawnzie

Got my rear inner fenders today. Off to be painted. I love the detail work on them. It matches the firewall.

Re: Fawnzie

Might want to re-check your rear brake calipers (bleeder). You could swap them from side to side and make that work. Or mount them on the rear of the axle.
