Fabricating the interior required quite a bit of work before the  "professionals" were contracted to install the insulation, padding, carpet, inner panels and leather. 

One can rummage the salvage yards for seats, but a '34 Ford is very narrow  and its difficult to find something that fits!  Can't beat these seats from Glide Engineering!  They come with all the foam.  Get their fold-forward passenger seat frame as well.

Not a good idea to bolt the seat frame directly to the fiberglass floor.  This 3/16 inch steel frame was welded and bolted to the side frame rails.  It also holds the Simpson harness eye bolt mounts.

This is the rear seat and harness eye bolt brace in place.  A 3/16 inch bar was used for the front mounts with large fender washers under the floor.

With the seats bolted down it was driven to the "pros" who installed the interior finish material.  Excellent noise pads were used on all surfaces.

Here the padding is seen over the transmission tunnel.

Flames were made from two tone leather to match the dark silver on silver flames on the outside.

The flames on the headliner were a surprise from the fabricator.  He thought they looked cool.  We agree!  The "stereo wall" and tubbed wheel enclosures still need  finishing in this photo.

Have a Welder?   Improve Weld Starts and Have Shielding Gas Cylinder Last at Least Twice as Long! 

Note: Our Patented GSS is Not Available in "Stores"

A home shop fabricator in Georgia with a Miller TM 175 amp welder purchased a 50 foot Gas Saver System ( GSSTM ) so he could use a larger cylinder and mount it on the wall of his shop.  He wrote:

A Professional Street Rod Builder Had This to Say:

With their standard MIG welder gas delivery hose the peak shielding flow at weld start was measured at 150 CFH. That caused air to be sucked into the gas stream causing poor weld starts.  With the GSS replacing their existing hose, the peak flow surge at the weld start was about 50 CFH.  Total gas use was cut in half.

Kyle Bond, President, quickly saw the improvement achieved in weld start quality as a significant advantage!   Kyle, an excellent automotive painter, was well aware of the effects of gas surge caused by pressure buildup in the delivery hose when stopped.  He has to deal with the visible effects in the air hose lines on the spray gun in his paint booth!  The paint surge is visible and creates defects unless the gun is triggered off the part being painted!  We can’t do that with our MIG gun!
