Driveshaft is in.   It is a slip yoke 1310 CV with  2" .120 wall tube  and a 1330/R3 conversion joint at the rear.

Started work on the interior.

It will be a combination of automotive carpet / tweed and vinyl.
I contacted the maker of the seats and asked if i could buy the vinyl fabric.  They sold me 3 yards. 
I also bought automotive jute carpet padding.

Interior is done.  Glass installed in the windscreen.

When the weather breaks its time for some tags.

well today was the shakedown

drove 66 miles with a top speed of 78 mph.    8)

no issues whatsoever,  smooth and solid.

this thing is a blast to drive! 

next test is a trip north on 390.
