wow that wheel is pimp. I really like your's as it is though... it's more retro with the shiny plastic I think.

The vintage benz game makes corrados look like small cake. Send me that side pic ;) I wanna do that chop.

Luckily my headlights are great and don't need replacement.
And after seeing that price, Rick, care to do a little 3m cover job?

Randy, you can smoke whatever you want. But you should smoke long thin cigarettes with a plastic mouthpiece. and wear white gloves.

YES!!!!
Upgrade your grey matter 'cause one day it may matter.

Don't be in such a hurry to condemn a person because they don't do what you do, or think as you think. There was a time when you didn't know what you know today...

I've been without a throttle pedal since I bought the car.

Not for much longer.

:D

One of the few untapped modifying resources. beltbuckles... the options are endless.

It works out perfectly being taller than it is wide!

How do you plan to attach the pedal?

I will drill out a small block of aluminum for the throttle rod and use a set screw to keep it in place. The pedal will be epoxied to the aluminum block to keep the face free of screws.
