    Looks good, Bat! Good idea on the aluminum foil "masking". I'll have to remember that one....

    When doing the panels,I had a lot prob's with the back side of the prepleated yellow,it has a very thin backing that screws up EZ in the feet of sewingmachine. I found a work around by adding 2in. masking tape to the back on were my edge is and I'm going to sew. This work well,so now I did the seats too.

    Looks great, Bat. This is just a guess, but I'm betting this car is a lot nicer than when you built it the first time...

    There are for sure some nicer parts;,New steeringwheel n column,the high polish stainless steel was only some alum sheet way back,the rims were just steel,and my upholstery is a lot better now,I made better headers this time,,I've added the aircleaner on a 4bbl///had 2x4 set up wayback with no aircleaners at all,but there long gone n way too high $ to get back.
    The rest is pretty much as it was.
