Thanks guys, i do appreciate it, not bad for a guy thats spraying out in the open, that sheet is my booth LOL ....

Im hoping to pick up my donor car this weekend, so it will be more mechanical work for a while, thats why im trying to get as much of the running gear and male a start on the wiring etc.

The rest of the interior will probably be of a similar finish.

Well ive been really, really busy just lately and apart from general life, the " silly season " approaching and the snow, ive had a slight change of plan.

Ive decided to go with a similar interior to my other Firebird.........Its BMW leather made by Recaro.











Its only been mocked into place, the fabrication hasnt started yet, but it will give you the idea.

And if you dont know about my other 2nd gen heres a peak of its interior........

the front seats look great.  is there any way to lower the rear,  I am not to crazy about how close they are to the roof. The car is comming out great though.  i wish i had the courage to try and do what your doing.  you will def have a one of a kind car.

Thanks mate, yep dont worry the rear will come down, its still has the mounts i made for the 4th gen rear seats that i was fabricating.

Its all just mocked in.

They will sit more like the Blue cars tan interior when its done.

5 Series Bmw. They really are very well made seats, superbly supportive and comfortable.

I like the seats by the way.

Thanks Kevin, hows your seat search going?

Over the summer when I get my job back I plan on saving for a set of Pro Car Rally's combined with a 4 Point Schroth Harness that hooks up to the rear seat belt mounting points. The Schroth is perfect for me. Has the racing look, feel and protection without having to modify the car to make it work. Not meaning to steal the thread.
