    The bottom of the car looks great, nice job fitting the exhaust in there!

    Nice! Big block, three speed trans, and 3.50 gears. That should have an impressive off the line launch.

    Couple quick things we are working on, putting a ABS plastic headliner and back panel so we are working on forming, cutting and fitting them before they get upholstery, also trying to mount some 4x10 speakers in the cab corners.

    Next door the neighbor is hard at work on the seats, here is how they are turning out.

    That is looking great! On the headliner, did you have to cut it, or just heat and bend it after taking measurements?

    The headliner itself I ordered from someone it was already shaped, we still have to do a little cutting and some heating on the sides above the doors, the panels from the headliner down we are making from flat pieces.

    Speaker mounts are done and most of the interior panels are finished except door panels.

    Should finish up the panels this weekend and pull them back out for upholstery, then we can start running all the wiring, get next door and finish sanding the bed and get it on and out of the paint booth. My battery holder is located under the passenger front fender.

    All but the headliner are back out of the truck, need to figure out wiring, also headed back next door to finish sanding the bed.

    Here is the flux capacitor.

    some 4x10 in the corners, 6" was a smidge too big.

    Looking good, the finishing up details sure do eat up a bunch of time and money, don't they? I always figure when it looks like you have a couple of good days work left things should be wrapped up in a month or three!

    Very nice work! All the little things needed to finish a build sure take a long time to find and get so you can keep making progress. Did you cast or have the piece on the back of the rear end laser cut out?

    I think the rear panels are finished, everything needs to come back out.

    Yesterday I added a couple coats of deck sealer to the bottom side of my bed wood, plus some of the shiny parts waiting for their new home.
