I like the look Robyn, real retro. The guy did a nice job on then install.

i think it looks great, your choice of headliner material is also very good in my opinion.

I decided I can live with the head liner, after blacking out the visors, clips, mirror and vents. im still concerned about the visual effects of twinkling stars created by the aluminum backed bubble wrap insulation that shimmers through the perforations. im seeing stars every time I slide into the drivers seat and I dont think I hit head.

committed to the headliner I installed the wide trim 68/bluebird rubber from datsport. I followed Byron's instillation guide but had to add a second rope to the outer lip as it wanted to curl under in the corners. man that wide trim is way harder than the 70s trim.

:lol: but with the rolls you get an off switch..... I should run some fiber optics up the b pillar from a color shift Christmas light, get the full 12k experience.

drilled out a 5/16th comp fitting with a 1/8th thread for the fan sw cathode. no more messing with it in the upper hose. glad I got the koyo rad.

they are never done. I even installed massive fuel lines because you never know what the future will bring.

thanks guys I just hope I can transfer the skills I gained on this restoration into some kind of living. the writing is on the wall and time is short to finish two trucks, two more 510s then find a work and a home to keep my 13 vehicles.

spent almost a week wrapping the center console in vinyl. arm rest feels great no need to lift an elbow to shift or turn but out of the way when the heat is on. not as pretty as I wanted should have used some foam. ImageImage
