That's coming together nicely, Mike!  Tell me -- how much of the "new car smell" goes along with the interior? ??? ???

Well suprisingly it has quite a bit of that new smell.  It is all new stuff including foam.  But once it fires up, all you smell is the alcohol fuel ;D

Great work, as always!

George, you'r not kidding on the glue!!!   That's got to be the most smelly stuff I have been around for the most part, and I have been around lots of paints and etc.   Honestly I don't really notice it unless I leave the building and come back later, but everyone else sure does.

Well the rear of the car is done!!   I still have to do a few odds and ends here and there, and get out a few wrinkles, but here is the back half.

Thats looking stunning, sometimes the sum of all the parts make more than individually .

Well he picked it up and loved it.   Here are some pics of the final results.   He is going to build some kind of  console to cover or paint and other than that, it is mostly done.  Enjoy.
