first thing we did was remove the horrible interior and toss the wood console and the 4 bucket seats. replaced with front and rear seats and the console out of a 1960 t-bird. they are in the car for mock up and for storage

next we pulled the motor to get ready to smooth the firewall and add a filler panel between the rad support and the front of the car.

Wow! Didn't realise you guys were taking that old Chevy so far! Guess I thought it was just getting a few minor changes and hit the road again. It was nice before, but I like the changes too!
