Our latest addition!
“Candy” we want to create into a “Respectable Gentleman’s Lounge”.
This would come complete with your choice of Bourbon or Whisky locker including snifters and cigars. Plush is the aim.
We like the idea of Chesterfield sofa style upholstery in Ox blood red or tan for the back row bench seat as well as the bomber front bucket seats.
The plan is to naturally go through every mechanical function, inspect absolutely everything and give her a fresh brand new look.
The look we have in mind is how she got her name. “Candy Apple Red ” is her full respective name. All trim peaces as in all the galvanized structure could be either high gloss Silver, Tan, Gold…
To really set off those trim / capping peaces we would like to also Hydro dip them all with a transparent Burl Walnut patter. The gold powder coated peace would come through nicely ghosted with the walnut. We would like to include in this technique to the dash board / gage cluster panels and any other accents, possibly even the tire rims and bumper if so desired.
The front seats could be aluminum bucket “Bomber” style. The back being the Chesterfield sofa / bench.
Being a short bed, and long full cabin, it would be ideal for heavy whet gear outside and the family covered up inside. Although, we do wish to build an aluminum pipe “role cage” and fabricate a soft / canvas top over the bed in either tan or dark red. (and believe me, i know what quality canvas work is, given that i have worked on the very best private sailing yachts of the world half of my life. I have very clear and clever ideas to make it tight and tidy, function and simple.)
Candy is right hand drive at the moment. We can leave it this way or change to left hand if you like.I personally never see an issue either way in functionality or drive ability on or off road so this is entirely up to you.
Of course we welcome all directions of artistic and unique personality you wish to convey to us and we would love to brainstorm up a ride you will be proud of.
