To me, pics like these are inspirational to get mine completed... Yall have done a great job, and as with all things great it takes time and work make it that way... just wondering why yall elected to eliminate the door pull straps? Cleaner look?

Thanks.

The panels that were already installed did not have pull handles. So, I just went back with what I had. I may add them later....

Just an update on the interior. I purchased the bucket seats off Ebay. I'm afraid that turned out to be a big mistake. They are not built very well. I guess I should have know this, since they come from China. So far, we've had plastic trim come off, springs in the bottom of the seat keep coming loose, bolts coming out, etc. I'm at the point that I've decided to find some type of factory bucket seats out of a late model car. I am doubting the safety of the seats if involved in a wreck. :evil:

Any recommendations on "sporty" looking factory bucket seats that I can find at a junkyard?

Thanks. Seats are from Ebay. They are cheaply built, I don't recommmend them. I've been told the Scat seats (looks the same) are much better. The shifter is a B&M Hammer.
