yeah, that blanket seat is a nice touch.
I've had serapes on several hot rod seats over the years. Thought it would be a cool nod. Back in the 50s when you had your hot rod in the shop getting a sweet upholstery job they would give you loaner seats with mexican blankets on em. If you were riding around with serapes on your seats it meant you had a sweet tuck and roll job in the works. Soon the poor kids just used the blankets as a look

Cool build. I remember having a set of those grips from the Esso station when I was a kid. CONGRATS!
