    So here is my new project im starting to kill some time. sorry for the crappy pics it was late when i took them. still not completely done gonna go to home[​IMG] depot today and find a stain to match my steering wheel and gonna put the chrome trim around the edges. i know it doesnt look like any of the stuff junction or vipdout puts out but its my first one it can only get better from here. let me know what yall think.
