Default PT Panel

Haven't been around for awhile. Coming back from the the PT show in Phoenix in 05 we were in a multi car pileup. The insurance company totaled the car and trailer but let me keep them. Sold off a bunch of the custom equipment and the trailer. Then the PT just sat. Took the insurance money and bought a Pontiac Solstice and did some custom work on it. My wife and I do car shows all summer long and have had real good luck with both cars. However I got to missing the PT so decided to build it into a Panel. It's under construction with a long way to go. If you are interested, go here to see.

Very, Very Nice Job!
I'd have to be retired to take on such a job. What do you do for a living - auto repair related?

Thanks for the compliments guys. It's appreciated.
Soonercruiser: While I'm semi retired and only work 3 days a week, to be fair about it, the installation of the fiberglass panels was mostly done by a body shop. I was merely a helper. I'm doing the interior now. Once it's all ready for upholstery, the car goes back for paint and the interior panels will go to be done. I'm lining the entire interior and floor with automotive insulation before installing the wood floor and the interior panels. Long way to go yet.

In order to make the floor all flat and extend up to the back of the front seats, I built a steel framework in the area between the ledge where the back seats used to be and the back of the front seats. This will have two areas that I can open to get to the floorboard. My auxillary battery for the lights will go in there. The other side will be for storage of jack, etc. I have drilled a hole through the interior side panel trim which will allow me to run any wiring under the trim along the side clear to the front. Hope to get the insulation done this weekend. Will post pics if I do.
