Step 20: Final Assembly

Now the parts that had been removed for painting could be reassembled. The fenders/headlights, wiring, floor boards, floor mats, seats, mirror, dash, flame effects, palaquin and LED lighting were all installed. A custom stick shift was hand forged, tapped to fit the metric threads on the old one and a ball welded to the top. A final adjustment to the angle of the shaft was done hot on the car to make sure it was just right. An old military spotlight from a Navy ship was added to the palaquin. Seat belts were bolted to the front seats and more attached to the floor for the rear seats. a few throw pillows LED candles....

And finally it was time for a test drive.
