The interior was done by Ron Mangus Hot Rod Interiors. We started with a stock front bench seat and rear seat and modified them to give shape and contour to the interior. The factory seat were then covered in red leather with black high lights. The interior features, Dakota Gauges, Flaming River Tilt Steering column, New Relic Power Windows and a custom sound system based off an Iphone by Audio Shoppe
Just about every body panel has been replaced on the vehicle due to heavy rust and neglect. After all the metal work was completed we began to tighten all gaps for better fit. Next we remove mounting hardware for the bumper, re-shaped the bumpers, and then tucked the bumpers very tight to the body. We the focused on fabricating a custom home which is basically a hybrid of a Super Sport and a Cowl Induction hood. And lastly, meticulous body work for a beautiful finish.
