Cabriolet Center Console

Well, I finally chose a name for the Cabby. Meet, project “Luv A Dub” I went back and checked the original post about the car. It just so happens that Garrett was the one that suggested it. Thanks Garrett!

This weeks update is 2 parts. First, I am still working on the floor pan. Removing all the sound dampener, rust, and crud is very time consuming. I am still working on the driver’s side. I have been using a wire wheel on a drill to remove any rust and the remaining paint, and glue. Here is where I am at on the interior.

If you notived that the center console is missing, great job. I took it out to make removing all the dampener possible. Here is a video showing just how much “art” is on this car.

I am SO excited on how this came out. I will clean and restore the console so everyone can see how to do that.

As you can see, the console came out great! I just wish the seats were that easy.

Well that pretty much recaps the work this week. Congrats to Garrett! I have a little gift pack for you. Just email me your address and I will send it to you. 😉

Have a great weekend everyone.

      That would be a Sierra Nevada Hoptimum. It is a fantastically hoppy IPA. I think it comes in at 10% ABV. I highly recommend it IF you are a hop head.
