Well, we're finally seeing things come together on 'Betty', with the interior now finished. I'm really pleased with how it turned out, especially the colour combination of 'Wild Cranberry' and black leather. The red piping on the seats looks good, and the headlining, which I hadn't been too sure about, looks great in the closely rolled tuck n roll.

Behind the seat the firewall has been covered in black leather/carpet and houses the stereo and speakers (stereo will be operated with a remote control). There;s even some storage tucked down at the bottom, hidden away from prying eyes and if you didn't know it was there you wouldn't see it.

The boot was kept pretty simple and the idea of having '32' etched in the centre of the carpet was ditched as there wasn't enough floorspace to get it to look right; might look for an original 'Ford' logo to put on there.....

So, what next? Lights, brake lines, coil-over shocks, electrics, pin-striping..........should be ready for the Christmas run!
