Dark looks good when someone else owns it. I own black cars that need to be washed all the time. The car is an oven inside when it's only 75* outside.

Its coming together

We've been hard at work. Tearing out the seats, flooring, air lines, doors, windows, speakers, wiring, heaters, you name it.

After the paint we gutted it. Tore out the metal skins, wires, old insulation. We have good momentum. Then came the insulation.

I like the ceiling shape! Seems like optimal head room close to the walls.
