My original plan was to do the interior in red and black, but I have changes my mind and now do it in a two tone brown. More or less identical to the interior I did on the Hudson.

Super smooth finish on the bodywork Jesper, and I like the interior scheme. Very retro.

Looking forward to more.

Cheers, D

Jasper,
Just caught up on your Nomad build. Boy does that bring back some memories from my college days in the late 60's early 70's. Nomads and Dune Buggies were popular even here on LI NY once the surfing crazy took hold.

Outstanding job on the custom work without making it look like a custom. Excellent choice of colors for the interior.
