Very nice job! Who makes those wheels? How about some more info on the interior too? What seats did you use? The headliner is cool too. Is that something you made yourself?

Thanks! the front wheels are caltrons (ancient) and the rear are ansen knockoffs. The front seats are from a honda civic (of all things) and the rear is from a pontiac grand prix gt coupe. The headliner was homemade and uses the factory metal rods to hold it up by sewing channels in the material and gluing on a foam backing. I also ground off the factory headliner clips to give it more of a clean look. Everything inside is texture coated with gravitex (as is the pan and under the fenders)
