    I agree with TDW.The car looks fantastic.
    I would do a custom modern interior.Use your personal aesthetics & ergonomics criteria.

    I would do an f40 spartan style interior. Cage with foam padding, blue Recaro buckets, flocked dash with no center console, and no carpet (metal painted silver)

    Well the move into the new house and shop last July went great, I built out my shop with a separate woodworking bay to keep cross contamination of projects ( no saw dust in my car or grease on my furniture ) I was fortunately able to locate some original Alcantera material for the interior that didn't break the bank.
    I have been trying to get the car running properly, the idle has been really rough for a while now so I purchased a HP Tuner and a at home course from the Tuning school so have been doing a lot of reading and YouTube watching getting up to speed on GM Gen 3 cars.

    I was forced into redirecting my efforts into a few projects around the property building new cedar decks and replacing the pool and a big garden for the wife, So everything pushed back for a few more months.

    Ill ll update when I get back to the project!

    Looking forward to the updates. I am new to this forum but have several mid engine 914 V8's and working on an Audi 2.7T currently. I am really amazed at how much I like the shape of the body on your car. Keep up the great work and if you do end up pulling molds off it I might be a customer. 914's have the same wheel base.

    In the interest of giving credit where credit is due I want to say that the changes and current finish to the design of the car where completed entirely buy Frank Dunlop. We brainstormed back and forth on the design but he did all the work. I think he did a fantastic job! Thank you Frank.
    I plan on finishing the car as soon as time allows.

    Well Iíve finally finished all the home and yard projects that have be holding up my build since we moved, and am back to work.
    i picked up a lift for my shop which will makes working on the bottom and sides of the car much easier and perhaps even save my back!!!
    I am working on my interior the ultimate goal to make a more modern updated interior. Starting with the dash endeavouring to incorporate the 550 instrument pod I picked up from Riceburrer a couple years ago into a modified 308 ďPisaĒ dash. I didnít want to destroy a perfectly good dash so I molded the dash and layer up one to cut up to add the pod.

    For the centre console Iím using one I picked up from Don that is for a 355 I picked up all the switchers from him as well. Iím running a 4T65e auto I wanted to eliminate the shifter Ē takes up to much real estateĒ replacing it with a PCS paddle shifter and controller.
    The seats Iím replacing with some APR racing seats , much more support and allows for a 4 point harness install.
    ill post some pics as I go need to figure out how to post them , itís been awhile.
