The interior is coming up great, as is the rest of it as well, are you going to add all the rivets as well?

Yeah, Micro mark makes them in decal form..Robert Nagle put them on his cabover, And they look pretty convincing!! And the 3rd Dash you were asking about, Was a simple difference...A bigger glove box in front of the passenger seat... Thanks
