    It is tidier than my house :). Flathead and flames surely.

    Fitted the body and bed onto the chassis just to see what it looks like with the new wheels.Not too bad, pretty tall..... plenty of ground clearance. :thumbup:

    I’ve been messing about putting a quick coat of rattle can black on the various brackets and stuff for seats, handbrake etc. One day I plan to get them powder coated, but need to make sure it all fits and works first. Been down this road before...... never ending modifications and alterations.

    Not sure if I posted any pics of the dash, work in progress, need to “age” it a bit before it gets fitted with gauges and stuff.

    I cut a firewall cover from 3mm ally, ‘it will just be a quick job with the plasma cutter.....’. Turned into a whole days work.

    Have you considered engine turning as a finish?

    I did that to start with, but decided I wanted more of a weatherbeaten, worn look, so Scotchbrited it down a fair bit. It is still there, just doesn’t seem to show in the photo.

    Here is an earlier pic.
