Well i finally started on it. As my granddad would say, im off to tear up a another perfectly good car. Its a fairly straight 67 with very little rust. The only real issue is it was hit in the passenger side and someone did a half assed repair on the heater channel. I narrowed the beam 4", added avis adjusters. 2.75 spring plates and one click in the back.

Gotta come up with a name- since it's an Outlaw style, you could call it Jesse James

Im going with this on the interior. Its a distressed basket weave and im going to paint some of the metal in the interior white. Pete's column and seat frames are white and im diggin that so im going to steal his idea. Im also going do some tooled leather and hammered brass on and in the car.

Yea, i like that car just not sold on the wheel color. I wasn't planning on doing hard lines but i couldn't find any decent line close by so i went to ace hardware.
