Today’s efforts was the remote, I should have taken some before photos, it really was in a state , an extended soaking in gunk and a good jet wash would not remove the dried oil and grease, I had to slice it off with a blade and scrape it before it was onto the bench grinder , worth the effort as it’s turned out so well . Just the gear knob to sand down and varnish to finish, I know it’s not the correct original but it was on the GT when I bought it and I kind of like it to be honest.

Great result! Try and get hold of some saddle soap, works wonders on leather!

Stripped the seat covers off So I could fit some new foam , drivers seat was very sagged , discovered a damaged squab on the back rest and that the foam had ripped across the rear on the seat base and also the springs for the base squab had worn away the seat frame so some welding repairs to do before they get reassembled , may as well get the frames powder coated while I’m at it !Attached File  36B30564-1132-4405-8F59-EF237039D1E6.jpeg   50.12K   0 downloadsAttached File  4C9FC1D6-7044-47E1-B8AE-AF160FBA9382.jpeg   50.67K   1 downloadsAttached File  1B590EE4-02D2-4795-9A8B-8CA35589B57C.jpeg   41.24K   2 downloadsAttached File  2437A5C2-3BD5-497C-A731-F48EC8AED464.jpeg   43.32K   1 downloadsAttached File  EBE3DE1F-2FF3-470F-A700-4A4CD258D5B4.jpeg   31.23K   0 downloads
