Since I am changing the color of my '37 as soon as possible and have always disliked yellow and brown as a color scheme I decided a while back to strip the interior and go with a grey hammered finish dash, steering column, door panels etc and to change the upholstery to grey...

Today I finally got most of it back in... here are a few pics (and a couple of how it USED to look first)...

The way it was...

Another view

Dash and Ididit Steering Column now in Hammered Grey Finish

Side floor kicker panels done with lights installed

Another angle

And another angle

One last look

I still have to get black or grey carpet installed and get the upholstered side kicker panels installed, but I think it's beginning to make a little progress... grin

I'd be happy to help you with the interior, Todd... I'm no expert but luckily to make it look 100% better than it did, I don't HAVE to be... it was fugly! wink

Tell you what... I'll gladly help with all the interior stuff if you help with the mechanical stuff on mine... seem like a fair trade? wink

Trev, are you sure your in the right profession. Perhaps you should try upholstery designing. Neat looking job pal.

I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

I just took what was already there and changed the color, Alvin... not like I had to make panels for it or anything... smile

The thing is I need mechanical help but this is something I knew I COULD do without having to rely on anyone so like you, I just did what I could the past couple of days...

I really needed to do something... over the past year I have been taking the truck apart more and more and at times it looks more like a pile of parts than a truck...

I *needed* to put this back together and for it to look half decent to keep me inspired and give me a little hope and while there's a long way to go and a lot I still can't do on my own, at least I know I have done what I can... grin

With any luck I'll get a little mechanical help and it will be on the road this summer... smile

Thanks guys... it will look a lot nicer once I get black carpet and get those side kicker panels installed, but yes, she's coming along...

I also have to deal with a new issue... damned driver side window cranks up half way, then needs a little "help" as the mechanism seems to bind somewhere... luckily the door panel is off because I painted it so I'll be leaving it off till I can spot the problem... frown

The driver side window glitch turned out to be just one of the tracks the window rides up and down in out of alignment so I finished re installing the door panel and side kicker panel at the floor on both sides and then decided to check the new tube steel seat riser mounts we built to see how they fit...

After that, how could I resist dropping the new seats in to see how they looked and how they fit...

Now if I could just get the wiring harness done she'd look even better, but for now the interior is good enough... at least till that wiring is finished! wink
