So the final layers of 2 Pac have been laid down and buffed back to a nice sheen. Middle windows have been fitted with nice new sliding glass, and the rest of the glass has been fitted. This is the fun part of the rebuild, except when you come across a sliding door seal that has been put in upside down... hmpf!
We have a couple of nice basket weave seats that slot perfectly into the driver/passenger positions, as well as a nice set of cream/grey doorcards that tone down the interior for a nice balance to the flipper blue and cream paint job.
We are still sourcing a good set of tyres that will look good with the dress rims.The engine is getting a tune up, and we're doing a final check on the electrics, but it looks like Betty Blue will be ready for next week! I think at this stage we're going to leave the back untouched, as everyone wants to do something different! Build a bed, rock n roll seat, cargo area?
Whatever happens I'm sure she'll find a good home.
