Thanks guys! I've got the functional front suspension done and I'm working on a setup to make the rear suspension functional and still look like airbags. I'll post pics tonight once I have it figured out completely.

That's crazy cool and a huge undertaking, great stuff! Personally I think tan interior is more modern than grey, just my thoughts.

Thanks Albie and Dennis! a tan interior is a good idea, I was originally thinking black because the car was going to be silver but I think the tan will go better with the light blue I'm using now.

The front suspension came out great, very nice job. Just curious but I was wondering what kind of pins you used and if you had any photos of them?

Thanks Richard and Jason, here's the pins I used. I just drilled out the kit suspension to fit them and used pen springs for the coil springs.

Thanks for the compliments guys, I really appreciate it! This past weekend was paint time. The color is a custom candy blue pearl over Kustom Shop "Speed Blue" urethane with Nason clear.

I decided to repaint the floor since there were a few bad spots in the black. The color is really a lot lighter than the pics show.
Thanks for following along! I'll have this one wrapped up soon. Billy

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.  SHINY :) :) :)  SHINY :) :) :)  SHINY :) :) :) .  I love it.

 

What's up with the pins?  Are they different from plain old pins?  I'm looking for the pins that come om some new shirts - there's kind of a ball on the top.  I think they might work pretty good for dash knobs.
