Not having any rear seats so made some ply panelling which will mount some of the music system.

I'd bought the wheels some time back so thought I'd go ahead & get these on the car to check stance & any clearance issues. The 2 on the rear I got banded to make them the width I wanted then all 4 powder coated black, then got some rubber on them.
Car off it's dolly's & let it sink to the floor. Rears are bit too close so although Limebug say discard the Bump Stops luckily I kept them so I'll modify them to give bit of clearance here.

The wife went away for the weekend so luckily it gave me a chance to use the dining table for a clean workbench to upholster some of the panelling. She'll never know...............

I 'm impressed with your build by the way, you do work quick.

I bought this just under 2 years ago but haven't worked non stop on it. There have been spells of inactivity:
  • Limebug order
  • Replacement door sourcing
  • Grandchildren..........
  • Wife.............................................. .....
  • Etc
When I'm working on it I'm 'on it' and work fairly quick, but I also have periods of inactivity!

Your seats look ace, I love the way this is going

You seem to have some imaginative ideas as well, I'm well impressed. I do try & be on it & work quick as well but I find jobs seem to take a lot longer than I was expecting. Does sometimes get disheartening when you spend hours doing stuff but don't seem to have achieved that much. This is my first total car build though so I shouldn't have expected an easy ride.
Thanks I love how the seats turned out as well. They took weeks & weeks, all the cutting, shaping, drilling & polishing, let alone fitting all those screws washers & nuts.............. as I was saying, a job that took way longer than I was expecting.
