I'll post more pics, but we did a latchless install with hidden hinges. Check the rear plate out. My body guy re-shaped the truck and recessed the plate with an LED lamp above it. Got some more goodies coming but it drives like a beast!
I have the most awesome wife ever for funding this project. My Dad and I built it to a point we could drive it and Jon Alleman of JRA Restoration did the body and paint.
I have to the thank all the vendors out there Breeze, Forte, Darkwater, Cobra Earl, Lodestone, Northcobras, VPM, Mass-Flo, Gas N Performance, ron morris, Micheal of replicaparts, Branda, DSS racing and of course Factory five for putting awesome products.
It's raining a up here in the PNW. I'll try to get more pics of the interior and trunk. We tried to keep a nice clean look! Jon did some cool stuff with the trunk. It is solid and has lifts to pop it open.
I noticed that you've installed Kirkey seats. I am about to do the same, but I'm not sure how to mount them. I got the Kirkey mounts, but it appears that several of the mounting points are outside the steel plate (would only be held on by aluminum panel). How did you install your seats? Thanks for the help.
