C-Cab

Any chance that the O/Head console could become the place where all the switches and etc (lite switch, wiper switch (?) etc etc) could wind up? Maybe even where the head unit for a future stereo might live. (sort of aircraft type with all switches overhead)

I sorta see it with toggle switches for lites, fuel pump, wipers, ignition (key goes elsewhere, but you turn things ON with the key, then switch ignition & fuel pump on with toggles) Just a thot - but in such a tiny car, real estate is precious, and you have just opened up a set of new possibilities.......

Thanks.. I was thinking about put a lot of the switch's up top.. The piece in the middle of the dash isn't going to stay there... I'm adding my gauges there... And not sure yet if this car will have a radio or not... It would be more of a show car... I will drive it.. But more for the bigger show's... Not any local show's... Circuit show's..World of wheels, and so on..I may show some local, But I don't want it judged.. It may be the only car I ever had with NO radio..

Just curious, w/all that steel welded to or in direct contact w/ all that bracing, what are you planning to do about corrosion protection w/ all those inaccsessible surfaces? I do appreciate the effort/planning, but...

Well That's hard to answer... I will do my best to get primer in there... Might get the whole body dipped... One thing I can say... Is not every car that was ever built has primer on everything... Not all where dipped either... I said in the beginning that I wanted something that would be remembered for a long time.... I really didn't plan on this car to Last ''Forever''.... But I do think it will be around for a very long time,,SOME WHERE'S !!!! I do understand the point your trying to make.... But we can't have everything we want... If that's the case.. I would have built it all out of stainless.. But one thing you can count on is... I ''WILL'' do my very best to Make sure I get as much covered as Possible...



Plus I would have to drill a hole in every tubing and fill with primer.... I really don't think that's going to happen.... This will be a driver... (But more a show car)But I really don't see this car really ever being in the weather... So I think it will last my life time anyway..

Juast another "thot"

Just another thought (I gotta stop having those - they are bad for blood pressure! Doctor warned me about that! )

How about leaving the big diamond in place on the dash, (part of the overall theme of the car) and put the speedo & tach just below it - in the console if poss and putting the rest of the instruments (gas ga, oil press, volts, temp, etc) into a panel that would be slightly above eye level to the driver right ahead of the driver? It would be hidden from the outside as it would be up behind the curved-down portion of the front of the roof. A similar panel on the other side could hold a stereo head unit.

Bring a horizontal panel back about 6" from where the roof originally ended, and then vertically back up to meet the inner surface of the roof, melding the upper console into it where they meet. Then put switches into the existing overhead console to complete the look

If the car is to be drivable, but (for the first years anyway) its principal duties will be on the show car circuit, creative touches and (at least the appearance of) having a killer sound system will be important, too! (As if this entire beautiful car wasn't already the most creative thing!)

(Just ignoring Doctors orders and thinking again!)

All that has past through my mine already.... Great mines think a like.... But the gauge set I want to buy is too wide for the top and it doesn't have the same curve....It has to be a flat dash..To work... So it won't work up top,,, But things are still rolling through my head...

That little truck really has a great look, just perfect!
It is so cool that just a few weeks ago it didn't exist.

It hilarious, just a few weeks ago there was an empty spot there and some tubing and sheet metal leaning against the wall. It really is bizarre that was such a short time ago and wham, there is this cool little C cab.

Looks good.I like the way you carried it over the rear end tubes.Can't wait to see it in primer with some of the body work done.Just the primer will make it look even better than it already does.
