Polished panels and interior carpet

Polishing the aluminum turned out to be a lot easier than I expected. I used a standard paint polisher with wool bonnets and Rolite aluminum polish.

I spent a lot of time on the interior this time around. The bare aluminum was very “racerish” but not very attractive. Previously i had painted the console top and it got chipped up a lot from the safety harnesses when getting in and out of the car. I covered it with a combination of truck bedliner and automotive carpeting you can buy in bulk from any auto parts store. The same carpet is used inside the side panels to prevent buzzing.
