All the work you see here, other than the media blasting /acid dipping,, is done by me, not even a helper, I do the mig welding ,grinding, sanding, body work, wireing, assembly, interior on seat etc. dont even have to look at a book to figure out this mess of wireing!

I build the seats up with a little more strength, seal the hair up in a cloth liner and add a cardboard stiffener
takes about 3 hours to put my interior kits on the seat frames.
