Phaetons came carpeted but Paul hand-cut mats from black rubber matting for a look more befitting of a hot rod. He made the heel pads from ’41 Harley-Davidson floor board inserts. The knob atop the shifter and the accessory handbrake extension came from a ’32 Chrysler. Paul sectioned the ’37 Lincoln Zephyr steering wheel and adapted it to the smaller ’32 Ford shaft. He also used the ’32 light-switch rod and horn button, a task that required an adapter to make it fit the larger horn-button hole.
