I just picked up my 55 from the upholstery shop yesterday, tell me what you think. I went all black leather-et and suede mix. I totally love it. It has been over 2 years since I was able to sit in a seat inside the car. I'm going on 4 years building this thing. Slowly but shrilly!!
Sorry if i posted to many pictures, but I'm Super stoked

Oh yeah the door handles and cranks.....I told the interior guy that I'm going to install power windows and power locks so I told him to leave it blank. I'm going to poke my own holes for the new door handles and armrests myself……..Sorry for the confusion. Here are a few more pictures of the car as it sits right now. LOTS of work to do now! I'm going to start in on the chassis now. Set the engine and transmission in place run all my lines and wires. Need to finish the air ride suspension as well.

Thank you....Thank you...... Almost forgot, the glass will go in next. I found a place out here in california where I can get all 10 pc's of glass in factory smoked for $1070.00 I can drive about 20 mins and pick it all up.:D
