Looks like you will have to remove the rear step, to lay it out!

Re: Tot Rod: Mid-MO Style

Finally time for an update. It's been a busy few weeks as we tried to get everything buttoned up for a local cruise and the Magic Dragon show this week.

I had a talented buddy do the interior for me and it turned out amazing. He was a fairly recent graduate from Wyo-Tech and man did he learn some stuff. We kind of gave him an idea and let him run with it. We are more than please with how the interior turned out.

Re: Tot Rod: Mid-MO Style

The pushbar was done by another buddy that is quite talented as well. I go over to his house and wasn't sure what to expect, and I was smiply blown away. Metal breaks, lathe, english wheels, and the list goes on.

The bar requires little effort to bring the front of the car up a 1/4" and the allows you to turn the car in any direction. The car was a hit at both shows and our little guy loves it to say the least.

What to do next....

Re: Tot Rod: Mid-MO Style

Here's a few pictures we took at the local cruise-in last weekend. The car was simply a hit all around.

A big thanks goes out to Kyle, Keith T., Greg A. and Jeff C. With their skills and talent, they helped me bring home my idea to our little man. Thanks guys!

Trust me.... it's on the list of things to do.

Going to see what I can come up with. I could cop out and use a similar setup like they use in highchairs or I might try something a little different.

Nate,... look here:
http://www.seatbeltstore.com/category-s/6.htm

You should be able to find a single seatbelt to match the cool new interior.
