    Fuel gauges are below the cluster on the Burnside, so I thought I may as well keep that feature. While I am not sure if I can make it actually functional, I think that I could have at least textures of the gauges.

    Update : the I8 engine is in! Still just a stretched texture of the Bluebuck I6 and needs waay more work, and I should also give it its own distinctive sound.

    This is how the interior looks as of now. Still not much, just a long slab with two gauges; very early WIP, I've never done dashboard work so this is new to me.

    Just an idea but why not raise the bottom of the windscreen up a bit to make the interior a bit more cramped and, you know, '50s style

    And have you any plans for a two spoke steering wheel, just chop the lower spoke on the current one and use it for the basic models and leave the current wheel for the higher trim ones

    I don't think a low-price car should be sharing parts with the more expensive brands.

    The two-spoke steering wheel is definitely on the list!

    no I mean different trim levels of the Special ie: Special 170, Special Super Custom, Special Deluxe etc... Same car different trims
    and also parts sharing happened a lot back then, it just wasn't very obvious like the body panels, seat and dashboard, it was rather things that would keep costs down and maintain build efficiency and to make the customer believe it was a whole new car they were buying a not a basic Chrysler Saratoga that was heavily souped up

    Edit:

    to make the I8 fit easier why not just make the car a longer, lengthen the space between the front suspension and doors and also (gee i'm asking a lot) lower the roof by about and inch to go with raising the bottom on the windscreen to give the car a real racy profile. Maaaaaybe some slightly lower, wider suspension to make things look right (although i'm just being lazy I could chane the settings my self)

    Edit 2:
    and maybe give the C pillar a bit more "slant" or whatever you call it and whats the year this car is meant to be manufactured

    I think this is too much difference for something that is supposed to be an experiment in upmarketing Gavril. The HQ would likely just slap the bodyshell and frame straight from Burnside.

    I've let yall unupdated for a bit too long, here's my progress so far.


    A column mounted button shifter for the 3-spd auto (more expensive one)


    A 2-spoke steering wheel and simpler dashboard (screwed textures, but not bad for a first attempt at interiors)


    And a set of intakes for the i8 engine as well as properly turning fans and whatnot. Still sounds like a V8, maybe I'll make a sample close to the I8 today using Automation.

    By the way : This car is still in need of a name. I codenamed it the Gavril 8, but that will not be the final name for it. Any idea folks?

    They sound goog (I particularly like Talladega) but they honestly sound very late fifties. A bit out of place

    "Talladega" does indeed sound like it, although Fleetworth or something like that has a more early 50s ring to it imho.
    Or we could have a number derived from the displacement, but I'm not sure how common that was back in the day.

    Well look at Chevrolets and Cadillacs, it doesn't have to have number that designates the engine capacity, it could just a simple two or three digit number with maybe the actual named trim levels reserved for the top-of-the-line models
    --- Post updated ---
    also could I recommend some kind of small gauge along the side of the speedo for temp like a little vertical strip, I get that its meant to be a base model simple dash but still. Or better yet... Warning Lights ! for oil, temp, and other misc early fifties related things

    I've had an idea for the dash: use the stile of the nash airflyte's gauge cluster. It has a specific distinctly early 1950s name (for an example the heater was called the "weather eye") but now it escapes me and for whatever reason i can't find it online. basically all the dials are in 1 cluster. Now Nash's design is an external "pod", but the cluster itself could be used in this car

    I'm sorry if i'm clogging up the thread but i had an idea for the dash: use stile of the nash airflyte's gauge cluster.

    Have you even read a little bit of the thread? also don't steal the name, neither from me nor from Oldsmobile

    People, READ the thread before posting: it's not a Burnside, it's a Gavril
