tonight i have painted my new creme white sun visors black with vinyl paint
they turned out real nice,

also installed the Horn's had to alter the brackets a bit to make it fit
now they will fit nicely under the radiator support cover that i made.

also painted the super charger cooler black so it wont be visible behind the grill later on Btw just got email from Danchuk the 55 grill is ready to ship

got the rear speaker grill finished up, i had an extra dash speaker grill emblem that came with the dash inlay trim.

also disassembled the bucket seats had to repair 1 spring on the passenger seat and 4 of the driver seat bottom , also changing the shape in front
to more rounded off corners

also bought a die to make fabric buttons have been fiddling a bit to get it right
due to the fabric i am using for the seats and door panels is quite thick
makes it hard to press them together nicely, but now 4 of 5 come out good,

Oh the buttons..... I remember making a lot of those back in the 70's-80's while building custom van interiors.

made 2 new hose ends for the charge cooler manifold
it had 2 quick connect fittings but could not find some connectors to my liking
+ it would look to complex and bulky

also hooked up the rest of the hoses to the cooler and reservoir.

paint on the Body .doors and fenders i getting along as well.
Body is in the paint booth right now and painted the Roof and rear in pearl white
but forgot to take pictures....

yes it sure does ! already took some small parts out in the sun
the pearl white is a base white with a separate pearl metallic you spray over on top. we also put it over the Dusk and realy pops the color even more
