Chevette Update 2: It’s what’s inside that counts!

Despite the rush of the fast-approaching holiday season, the Chevette build continues apace! Right now, the body is drying, and that’s still about a week away from being sandable, I think. It still smells like Future, regardless. In the mean time, though, I’ve been busy working on what’s inside the Chevette, and I’ve gotten the entire interior bucket finished! What goes well with a boring beige stripped-down exterior? Why, it’s a boring, stripped-down brown interior in cheap vinyl with an all-black dashboard, of course! Silly you… you had to ask?

Stay down and stay brown. This is the not-so-exciting interior of the Chevette Scooter. Note the black "unpainted" wheel wells, as well as the all-black dash and armrest-less CARDBOARD door panels. Cheap-o!

Simply Dashing! Literally! The no-nonsense, cheap-as-possible all-black dashboard has only two vents for flow-through ventilation; no A/C here!

Keep on rollin'! These are the thin whitewall tires that will one day soon adorn the Scooter. These are actually styrene, not the rubbery material usually used for tires. The third from the left has yet to be given a satin coat.

Chrome! Ha! Chrome is for big-money Chevettes! Scooter only gets sliver-painted bumpers and grille! I still have to wash the grille, do the headlights and do the indicator lamps in the bumper, but the budget-ness that is Scooter is shining through here. I might satin coat these, too.

    Speaking from experience from hauling these gems .. lol .. I am familiar with these . The floors had Rubber Mats from W/B in Automotive Manufacturing . The dashboard was the same tan Vinyl and paint as the rest of the Interior . Monochromatic not counting the Rubber Mat . Plenty of Painted Metal and Cardboard as you have it . IIRC , The chromed interior parts were silver painted instead . Door handles , turn signal stalk IIRC & gear selector .
