Looks great! I think I saw a few posts on The HAMB about it if I remember correctly. Going for the 60's look I guess and heavy flake roof next to match the tops of the flaked panels? If not then I think it would look great and be a bit different. I'm not sure how many here are into that but either way you go will look nice. Great work!

Yeah you will be fine since your on the East haha. The East coast IMO is behind on the times or style I should say. Especially with the traditional hot rods and period correct vehicles. I am from So California and I'm sure you know that the style there is much different. Even though it's just a different state, for some reason style and people are different. Nothing wrong with it at all so please no comments on things like "go back if you dont like it". I like it here in NC or the east, it's cheaper to live, no crazy people and laid back. :devil:
As for the flat black thing, I am glad your not going that route. That has been way over done and was gone a long time ago but I still see people here talking about it and saying that it's the new style. :rolleyes:

I think that was quite true at one time. Everything I grew up with seemed to start in CA. Skateboarding, music, custom cars, and easily impressionable girls. Now everything seems kinda retarded in CA. I'm waiting for Cali to sink.

I am with you on this one! Unfortunately I have most of my family there still so I dont want it to sink with them on it. Also it's scientifically proven that the way the plates run that it's impossible for it to break off and float away or sink... :rolleyes: :confused: Oh well, there's still hope right? :D

That looks really good. You guys have some pretty amazing skills. What thickness foam did you use for the seats?

the foam is 1/2 " high density with 1/4" 8 oz polyester badding
