    Unique gauges for sure. The speedometer will take some getting used to, but after that it will be like me driving with a tach.

    I got the dash and steering column back from Paint friday evening and I waited as long as could to put it all together. I'm loving the color.

    Nice and clean unified look. No modern barbs that don't look like they belong.

    Its been slow going but Ive managed to get a little done in the Texas Heat. The dash is in and I've started the wiring and cleaning floors, roof and inside the doors.

    Good fun! I like your wheel covers. I was very torn between the cool look of a vintage wheel cover and the lightness of the new alloy wheels.

    Thanks!
    These are just the cheap re-pop Hollywood Flipper caps from the 40's.
    The are on stock GM 15x7 rally wheels. (Disc Brake clearance)
    Eventually I will get pair of original ones but the wheel fitment is a bit of a hassle.
