Not one comment on my gauges. Like or dislike?
It's hard to GAUGE what your interior theme will be.
I'm a big fan of the shiny parts that come with the early flat dash roadsters. Maybe consider chrome/stainless bezels?

My theme is still a secret until I get my plates (plate in Florida) approved, but I'm really excited about where we are going with it.

Okay, I can now share with you my theme. The Nissan GT-R Godzilla got me thinking.
I have always been a Japanese monster movie fan. My little Fairlady will be named Mothra. I have purchased art from one of the artist known as the Godzilla Bro's. I will be embroidering the art on the seat backs and grille will have the art displayed as well. The long wing Mothra's will be facing each other on the seats. I was able to get the Florida plate MOTHRA. The trick is to make the art look like it blends with the car. Attached are a few photos of what I'm planning. So those of you that don't know it, Mothra will be in a major motion picture very soon. If you waited after the credits on the last King Kong movie you saw the cave drawings...

Push button start will replace the key so I am having a new sleeve made to cover the steering column. the button will be on the dash. hands free phone microphone will be built into the dash. top of the line stereo with no glare screen.
What is the benefit of the push button start? I've been trying to decide if I need to do that in my build but haven't thought through why it would benefit me. Appreciate understanding your logic.
My dash is custom and want to clean up the steering column. Also it's cool.

Forgot to look at my Spriso brake kit until a couple days ago. Good thing my old brakes are painted too. Sorry Michael Spreadbury you have saint like patience! I should have had all my brake issues taken care of a long time ago... For all of you who will be buying brake parts from him in the future, READ THE DIRECTIONS before calling for help. The kit includes everything he manufactures but not the stuff he doesn't make. That you will have to purchase after you get your kit. He makes it easy if you just look at the shopping list included with an email he sends after your purchase.
