Wow, this is going to be great! Will you do paint or a wrap?

The search for a 1992 steering wheel is somewhat complete. Found this one at the junkyard for $10 and will serve as a good stand-in until something near perfect comes along. It actually wasn't as hard to remove as I thought it would be. Just a little wiggling and pulling, and no need for a steering wheel puller tool.

Got my hands on a screen accurate King Pelican Case. Im nowhere close to really getting into the props on my build but the price and condition made this hard to pass up.

Was curious to know what the sealed beam bulb looks like. I mean I know what they look like dealing with the C-300s. But does it have 4 holes? Cause my sealed Baja bulb has four holes and the back of it says 12v and then 1?0 the Question mark meaning the stickers ripped. So I'm just trying to figure out what watt bulb I have is all. Keep it up!

The bulb that’s currently in there isn’t the sealed beam kind. Definitely gonna but a sealed beam for it and might go with a 150w.

That is a really nice looking case!

Probably a good idea to grab it when you had the chance. Felt like it took me forever to find one I was happy with.
