another shot of motor mounted in chassis:
long shot of the interior, showing stereo wires lying all over the place, dashboard striping, mexican blankets over stock upholstery pattern, big old subwoofers, all that stuff to make the earth quake:
heres a closer shot of the dash, showing clear rim steering wheel with suicide knob, cd player, hydraulic switches or something of the sort, Jesus picture, and lots of pinstriping:

this actually turned out too clean for what i had in mind, an authentic barrio ride. one day i will have a go at weathering it some but right now i just kinda cant bother with it. you will notice all kinds of touches like the bungee cord holding in the battery, one of the exhaust tips held on with wire, license plate on coathanger through popped out trunk lock hole. i need to drill an antenna hole still and stick a coathanger in there too.
kind of a high riding low rider:
OG checks out the motor:
close up of motor and engine compartment:
