10 switches, why so many?

are you going to have them on a wire like the lowrider boys or mounted somewhere?

just a test fit, still need wheel nuts

you have a switch for each move, they come on a wire with a box.
ive spent today taking the wiper motor out as it don't work, whilst my dad polished the chrome on the front
my new workshop is a bit empty at the moment. Razz






my plans are to get the air and the wheels on before bug jam.
these are pics for inspiration, this is the style im going for. i might flake the roof next year and maybe some old skool patterns. the head lining is going white fur and may get a 10inch wheel.
