Who did the dash pads?
My Friend Anthony Nue , along with most anything interior related on this project . The stuff was quite beat down and he was able to salvage it. I am using wood restored/ made by our own Peter Coomaraswamy

i am amazed at the glovebox ... i sent that glovebox to Max ... basically for the shipping cost because it was not in that good of shape.

I'm totally the novice here but having fun sniffing all the paints and stains! I finished staining the dash this morning and I'll be spraying the automotive clear-coat before leaving work tonight. Here is a before picture- I hope it looks reasonable tomorrow morning!

The gauge cluster has new veneer but the other dash pieces were stripped and re-stained

the body work is progressing . Its been primed and they are doing the final sanding and blocking before it gets sealed for the color to be applied

I am really happy with how they molded the front spoiler in and blended it with the fender flares , It should be a nice detail when its finished

I love the look of the black!
I wonder, do you want the wood grain visible or would it be cool to machine it out of delrin sheets, or something like that? Super easy on a mill or saw.. Hmmm...know my mind is wondering....damn!

Hey Brendan -- What fasteners did you use on the wheels and where did you get them?

The wheels are actually being built at BBS , so the hardware is what ever they use , and David The rears will be 17 x 10.5 and the fronts more than likely will end up being 17 x 9
