Sub panel in trunk holds battery, audio shut of switch with integrated battery tender in car. Frame powdercoated black, sanded smooth then lighted recoated with clear power, now just as shinny as the quarter panels, LED lighting… Way too much to list.. This car is brand new with less than 2 miles, beyond the looks and beauty of this 50’s icon look. This build was quality with every nut and bolt new, performance and safety before looks… It just happened to end up beautiful as well.. No compromises, you will see and more importantly feel when you drive.
I Have over 150 Photos of the car from start to finish on the restoration.
