Headers are handled. Rear dump block huggers I had laying around. Have not much ground clearance for long tubes

few interior pics.  saddle tan with a ford king ranch saddle leather look insert. it takes a while to make that look. Its kind of a distressed red/brown. I have used it on a few builds.

Great choice on the interior color. Really like the look of the leather. This is gonna be a beauty when it is done. Great job Fred.

Don

sure Don. Its pretty easy but takes a few tries to get it right. I use red oxide primer as a base then put a dabs of brown,red and black paint on a piece of masking tape. I then dip a brush in each of the colors. I brush it on the tape then onto the area I want to do,so its more of a dry drush technique.sometimes I have some thinner handy and just dip the brush from time to time to thin out the paint some. the colors dont completely mix so it gives the darker and lighter areas plus some are more red. I do this until I am happy with the result then I spray it with semi gloss clear to knock it down a bit. I usually try and have every part I want to do ready so they all turn out similar.  Give it a try.

Thanks Fred for sharing your painting tip with the leather seats.  Defiintely something I'm going to try.  Love that big old Cammer you have in your 57.  Can't wait to see the finished build.  don

Bugs me, too. I'm still debating over whether to clip the frame or not, but if I stick with the stock rails they'll definitely be smoothed up.

 

Which cammer is that, btw?

I really love where this is going. I built mine stock but I might have to borrow your ideas and get another kit!
