Post Aluminum interior Finally finished. Check it out.

I finally finished my aluminum interior today. It has been a pain, but I am pretty happy with it. What do you all think?

Chris

Ennis, Kennedale, Little River I will probably hit 'em all. They are also building a new 1/4 IHRA track in Abilene. No doubt I'll have to check that one out. Maybe it will be a straight concrete track.

Cool

Did you use a patern for your dash? How about the door panels? Are they screwed or rivited in place? Looks great Chris!

Thanks Todd,

Nope, no pattern. I just started with the top of the dash and rought cut it. It took about ten in and outs to get it all trimmed down. Made the front of the Dash and door panels the same way. the side finish panels were more like 20 times in and out. It took as long for those little pieces as all the rest of it.

I used small pan head sheet metal screw for everything. I dont like anything to be too permenant, and that way I can replace anything that might get damaged or need to be reclearcoated.

Well, I thought that was what I had up there. Yep, it is. Are you looking for a close up. I have not gotten the gauge holes cut yet if that is what you are getting at.
