That is insane!

I used to know a bloke that's did the short arse conversions, they used to get lots of attention on the road as I could imagine this would!

That's crazy, love it though, especially the wood effect, how did you get the wood effect on there, is that vinyl stick on wood effect?

No, it's painted on and then varnished (really)

Really really cool car, I like how you did the seats and the column mount. 

 

Looking forward to seeing more.

Wow, there is some serious time and skill gone into this by the looks of things!

 

Will you need to get custom glass made up?

 

Are you a panel beater by trade?

 

Awesome work!

Headroom is fine.....Although the seat bases are on the floor.... and I'm only 5' 8" :gimme:

Don't do bright colours although 'Sunny', my 1380 is bright canary yellow. O_O

The wood paint has been a kind of signature scheme for quite a while, I did a mini van and a deseamed clubbie estate converted into a pickup a while ago......
