OK, now we can see the last few details come into focus.  And we begin with a place to sit!  6 way electric leather Cadillac seats should about do the trick you think?  Shoulder harnesses are built in.  Very safe, very comfy, very cool.

Another view of the restored ’57 panel truck seat installation “In progress.”  At Doug Jenkins Garage we use Cadillac seats for a lot of these hot rod builds because they look great, are very comfortable, they have the shoulder harness built in, and the electric installation is quick and almost easy.  I don’t know of a better seat for this application.

And then there was light.  Purists may notice the updated four-headlight front clip.  This is a hot rod outfit, after all, so whatever is coolest is what happens.  The customer located this later clip, likes it better, so it’s the one.  This week saw the installation and wiring of all lighting on the ’57 Ford Panel Restoration Project.

Tail lights were optional, and unattractive, for the ’57 Ford Panel Truck.  So part of the restoration/hot rod project here included the custom ’51 Pontiac tail lights.
