here is some of the new lining for the top of the lid. pics are a little dark . the blue buttons will be covered with the purple as well 1" HD foam glued to the cardborad . for the sides i was thinking of maybe just adding a few pleats, this stuff shines nice. still got to come up with a way to attach it to the body the factory used a cripper to attach the satin to the sides . i tryed to do the seat in diamond tuff but didnt work so i just used that spray adhesive and wraped it in the velvet put this on and with the polished alium floor boards i think it will come out nice ..... any one live near cherry hill nj area that has a pipe bender maybe help with a small roll bar? really didnt want to go to HF and spend 100.00 and use it once could be a decent investment i guess probably be the last thing that goes in the car besides me

what it doesnt look right or its just creepy to have in a casket? i am pimping my ride a bit just like the guys with the lowriders if you watch " munster go home" when they rebuild the drag u la the casket has the same pattern (only on half the lid) looks kinda kool looking
got my block back yesterday will start putting that back together this week everything seems to be going as planed i think even if i had a garage it would be darn cold to work in right bout now even with heat. only 2 more weeks and this winter is history i hope then hello springtime

It looks perfectly "right" in a casket, THAT is what is so creepy!

casket interior

oh little up date on my build we added more steel to the steering, added some gusets to each corner of the frame for a added support. i was thinking of adding some diamond plate to cover the steering rod and set gauges on top, with a key switch on bottom just wanted to see what the seat and some velvet looked like with the floor . test fit the top section of the lid. also put on the plastic or foam trim around the top of the lid putting a different patteren along the bottom then filler along the edges and prime jeepers creepers its coming along all the time is this gonna be a kool ride or what?...
of corpse it is

I did this helmet many many years ago, for a drag bike called "Bone-Zai". It seems like a natural for your project. ...less the samurai headband of course. :-)

new rims

got these mounted yesterday 15x8 rims got these off of speedway motors kool knockoff of a Rader wheel the center caps i was thinking of spraying black and adding a white spider web design.. The only thing is these are not deep dish type. and my slicks are only 9 " wide these will work fine cause the trailer im doing mods on is only 75" wide between the tires ... if they were deepdish with a smaller back space the car would fit on the trailer
