Don't know if this has been asked before (I didn't read the whole thread) but i'm wondering.
- Is where you got the seat mockup where you expect the seat to end up?
- Also was the proportions you used in your design based on any particular formula, or what you liked/wanted?
You have some fantastic ideas there, my favorites are building the top of the "C" into the windshield posts and the little diamond windows.

Well.. It all started out by looking At the Pizza wagon and Ice Truck for too many years,,, I never had a Dream I built a car before..(Not at night anyway)
But I dreamed I built this one... And Got the OK from my wife to start cutting the steel, I drew it out on the wood, stepped back to see how it would look,,,, It was dead on to me, So I cut it out, And this is the out come of a dream.....

The seat in it now, Was just something I was playing around with, I have a few wild idea's I been thinking about... So we all will see in the end..

The Proportions was just out of my head..
My friends come over to see it, and they ask me the same thing, How did you come up with the measurements ??? I just made them up I tell them...
A lot of the idea's on this build just come to me, It get pretty weird some times.. So I just go with it..... It's almost like I built it before, or someone is leading me..... I know that sounds crazy..

I'm pretty good at looking at pictures and being able to build it like I see it and the picture...... I owned a gym at one point in my life, And didn't have the money to buy everything... So I bought all the catalog's I could find, And just looked at all the machine's and built everything I needed to open a fitness club...... Everyone that was a member of my gym,,, Couldn't believe I built everything in the gym....A gift I believed God gave me.... So now I use it to the fullest.. And I share it with everyone I can..

You've got talent, there's no question about that. But here's a suggestion of something you might want to look into. My other hobby is woodworking and in that hobby I like to do like you, see an item or pic of an item and build something similar but to my taste. I've learned that the best designs are usually based on Pi. Example the width of your entrance is aprox Pi (1.66) times the depth of the cowl. Look into the Pi thing if you build another one and see what it looks like if you can work Pi into the proportioning of your design. I'll leave it at this as I'm not a automobile designer. I'f there are any who hang out here maybe they would be kind enough to correct me if I'm wrong.
