Heres a few pics of the work that has gone on over the last few weeks. Painted the center of the wheels with flat steel. Got the cab and hood all smoothed out primed and painted, sanded and polished. On the interior, im using the dash, console and seats from a 2010 Mustang. Also scratchbuilt the door panels. Got a MAD distributor in and wired up. Enjoy!

I finished up the interior and turned an aluminum air cleaner on the lathe. Dash, console, seats and steering wheel are out of a 2010 Mustang. Door panels are scratchbuilt. Heres a few pics. Thanks for looking!

Very nice job! I hear that, I have 2 little ones as well, and when you just put a dab of glue on and are holding two pieces together to dry, and they need immediate attention. Kind of funny, you cant move.

Great job! I love that shade of blue. Are those billet-looking pulleys Kit parts or aftermarket?

 

   Thanks!

Mike, that is Duplicolor Electron Blue Pearl spray can from Advance Auto Parts. it is a factory Honda color. I had to dechrome the grille and front bumper as there was some flashing on them i had to sand off. I will be spraying them black then Alclad to get a nice chrome finish. I will post pics when finished. Thanks to everyone for the comments!
