Thanks for all the compliments, I wasn't sure if my build would be of any interest as there aren't many out there and it is really out of the norm but I wanted something strange and different that could still be long, low, loud, and sinister!

Adding more structure and strength to the body



Have to do something with the doors, wood is old and dry.


Pulled the wood and bent some 1x2 to match the curves



Now I have a door that has a solid frame work and won't twist


I got a good set of stock bottom hinges with the truck but the upper I didn't care for so I found this old set of brass house door hinges and made them fit.


They open and close nicely and the body lines are good


Building the floor with 1x1


Scored some seats from a coworker for helping him remodel his bathroom
