This is right before my first real drive. I have a car buddy that is not doing so well these days so I took the truck to his house so he can take a look at it. The truck rides nice but the best part was seeing the smile on his face when he was checking it out.

Is that painted or covered with cloth?

I made this one for the '55 Chevy and painted it to match.

I like your idea of matching the seat. Looks sharp.
