Where abouts are you getting your chroming done?
I've always loved the look of the rear of your Van Steve, and the glovebox and inner guards have come up a treat! hey where did you get the blue crushed velvet on your console? I've been chasing that electric blue shade here in Brisbane but can only get a really light blue, a really dark blue or a splotchy mix of the two.
