In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
I like your dash. Everything looks good. Can't wait for more details.

Some times shit just goes wrong

After spending hours air brushing this, the clear coat wrinkled and really messed it up...so removed it and started over same brands and type of paint but it wrinkled bad....I think the clear was to hot for the paint underneath....

Parachute release lever

Made this up from flat stock and angle stock...handles came from Jegs and the cable and clip from a out board motor shop...had to figure out how much lever stroke was needed to release the chute...even if I can not use it on the street...total cost about $45 bucks and an afternoon to design and make...the holes really make it pop...love making shit like this

Seat frames

Since no one had what I wanted for the seats I was going to use...at least not at a reasonable price I made up my own extra heavy duty...cost for the pair was about $30 in materials ...flat stock and shallow channel stock for a seat capable of holding some one 300lbs. or more....since I am the only one driving it having them fixed is no problem....but they are tilted to where they are just right for me
