I picked up some wooded door panels to copy and will be mounting my window switches and made these leather door pulls.

And I was able to find an original bicentennial (76) flag and put it on my headliner. Weird but I'm really happy with that. It finishes the space between the 2 wooden strips I put on.

I took the rear brackets off that lock the doors in place when you shut them they are being chromed as well as the bolts. Also jacked the front end up off the ground, tires went flat since being in storage since Nov. Getting new wheels anyways and tires, otherwise I'll take these off and have them redone and keep them or sell them.

Yesterday I twisted up 25 feet of 8 awg cable for my Solar charging circuit. Should allow higher voltages to make it to my MPPT charge controller and thus more amps into my Batteries.
