I have had my 1981 Cutlass for 26 years. The original paint was Deep Maple Poly. The interior although I don't know the name, is a lighter more red color than the Dark Clariat interior offered later in the car's production run. My car was built as a lightly modified hot rod. Cutlass's were everywere and police never cared. Now when I drive it I'm scrutinized a little closer.
The colors of the car go great together.The dark interior color seems to go good with the body colors. Maybe 2 tone it with another color. IMO let the period of the car speak for the wheels. If more stock with the modified 312 how about chrome reverse rims. Those were popular during that time period. Have fun with it it's your personal expression
Geoff, I am building a replacement Trabant for my friend as I ran into a problem. The problem is when the roof was installed it does not sit square on the body. Did you run into this? What color are the door panels and seat inserts you used? Trabant looks great its inspiring me to crack open the new kit and build it for him.
Great work! Where did you get the Mopar oil filter decal? Spark plug boots, did you make them or are they from a vendor? I learned to drive in a 68 Charger, I remember the dash being black with vertical lines from the gauges to above the glove box. Is the R/T model suppose to have wood on the dash? Again, your off to a great start
