Next I wanted to simulate that the original gauge face had been removed and a license plate was used to cover the hole and then aftermarket gauges were install in the plate. First I sanded what little detail was there off. Then applied a plate decal next I put 2 gauge decals over the plate decal. I think it looks a little to "busy" but it's done so it'll stay. Then I decided the inner door panels needed something so I cut a couple of signs off a cardboard background in a display case. and secured them to the door panels.
Overall I think it makes a conviencing rat rod interior!
The interior is complete. First I used the thread & tape method for making a mexican blanket seat uphostery then I searched through the stash to find a unique shifter knob. I found a suitable shifter and decided to go with a ballpeen hammer head. <a href="http://s868.photobucket.com/user/alangri_2000/media/20161204_110443_zpsjjo9xyuw.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i868.photobucket.com/albums/ab246/alangri_2000/20161204_110443_zpsjjo9xyuw.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 20161204_110443_zpsjjo9xyuw.jpg"/></a>
I really like that trick with the seat cover. Totally boss!!!! Totally!
Yesterday's gone and Tomorrow aint here yet. Today IS the best day we'll ever have.
Thanks Joe. I went on-line to try and find a mexican blanket decal but found a u-tube video on how to make a blanket using thread and tape. Later that same day I found out Les is doing the same technique on his 58.
