    Or jump on the wild side and buy a Factory Five Daytona kit car. Been eyeing those for a retirement project. My cousin bought their Cobra kit as a father/son project with his 18 year old son! Or maybe a long road trip!

    these pictures were supposed to show the painted and stainless steel fender bolts comparison but the picture doesn't do so good showing that. I was looking for input on the choice which looks better but its hard to see. The polished stainless is reflecting the red so they look red vice stainless.

    I prefer the painted fasteners, for whatever my opinion is worth!

    Both look good, but I like painted better, too.

    Yup the painted it will be. The stainless are just a bit to much stainless in the bed.

    Thanks again for the inputs .

    Love the design of the seat. Tying in the exterior color was a great idea. Well done!

    I vote for painted bolts, and the seat looks great!
