With new yokos and deep-dish mambas.
Just about fills the Group 5 arches now
Happy with that.

'chop' this is simply stunning work, read that you're really disheartened by the BIVA and it'd be such a shame to see all the work you've done come to nought.

you need to beat the BIVA for the sake of all minikind !!

Upholstery foam arrived today, so thought I'd have a less taxing day in the garage making my door cards.....

 

Well, 3 hours later and I've barely scratched the surface of the 1st one!

 

I've got the making of the beer bottletop buttons down to 2 mins per button- 28 taking me over 2 hours >_<

 

Trouble is, I reckon I need 700+ to finish it..... Much patience needed O_O

Hard to explain......

 

So I did a sketch ;D

 

Attached File  Picture 156.jpg   165.46K   47 downloads Button made up of split fastener pushed through washers and bottletop crimped onto these

 

Attached File  Picture 155.jpg   21.44K   64 downloads sort of close up of how it's attached. The bamboo forces the split legs of the fastener apart and stops it pulling out (and yes, I do know you can get 'fir tree' interior fasteners..... but they are like 10 pence EACH- one VERY TIGHT mini owner :gimme: )

 

Clear as mud, eh? O_O

I love the idea with the interior.
And the paintwork is stunning.
This car is just the kick I need to get my own chop project finished.
I'm debating whether to take the roof down again. Currently 3 inch chop, but love the look of 6 inches. And so does the missus, lol.
