Almost there!

Almost complete!
The car now has a full interior including seats. The vinyl top has been installed. A big thanks to Vic Calvert for all of his hard work and advice through this process. The top was different than the original install of BB1 as a side note. BB2 and BB1 are different in several different ways. The exterior differences are subtle but in 1966 no one would really notice.
Wheels are finished as well as scoring new tires. The might go on this week. But first the brakes will be thoroughly gone over. New bearings, seals and pads are a must. The front gas gun door has been giving me problems along with its electrical motor. I have been getting electrical advice from Adam Savage of TV's Mythbusters. Thanks Adam for all of your help! Next up will be making the rear taillight lenses which I am not looking forward to as it requires a lot of installing and test fitting.
