Try searching on the UK forum; they have a lot more finished cars over there and some are very well done:

What are you looking for in an interior?

Here's the interior of the Seven I got from Gene, that fit Gene and not me. I had to remove the seat and raise the steering column and shifter to fit into it.

We're sorry to inform you that LocostUSA will be down for repairs for an extended period of time. We had an unexpected lightning strike that fried all our equipment.

How about some large lightening holes on the top of the driveshaft tunnel. Then you can also check to make sure that part is moving while you drive around.
:)

Maybe one of those bright red tow ring things you see mounted on the front of a car sometimes... Hold it to the bottom of the dash with a wingnut for emergencies...

I would recommend a blonde, brunette, or redhead in the passengers seat to hold a cup for you.

Great idea!

This reminds me of a story. A couple years ago, when I was building my car, I had a blonde over, and I was showing her my car. She noticed that it didn't have cup holders. She tried to convince me that I needed some. I disagreed with her, because I didn't see the need to bring drinks into my car. A couple of minutes later, she asked what kind of engine I had in my car. I told her that I had a 5.0L V8. First, she asked what a V8 was, then I needed to explain to her what the 5.0L meant. :roll: Good thing my girlfriend understands these fundamental things.
