Re: Orson the 49 GMC ~ Chris C.

We found the right paint and painted the whole interior minus the passenger door (ran out of time).also the back headliner retaining trim was missing due to the sunroof, I’ll have to source one.

So we installed our own Precision cut full length door panel bases, you can have your upholster cover them any way you like.

Re: Orson the 49 GMC ~ Chris C.

We spent pretty much all day building the mini tubs, they’re not done yet.
These are some 6x9 boxes we are working on. They will be made from 18 gauge, and precision laser cut

Re: Orson the 49 GMC ~ Chris C.

We got the whole inside of the bed wet sanded
We found a huge dent in the Middle of your dash (it looks someone pounded it with their fist)
And we finished bodywork and painted the roof, it’s still wet in the picture!
