May have been a pain, but the carpet looks great.

Making steady progress on the interior..fitted the isolator and made good the carpet around it with a couple of stainless finishers for the cable and carpet where it touches the floor support..Headliner had the usual glue stains so decided to cover  it with some Alcantara and the rear light cluster covers ..came out really neat and easy to apply...

more top-class work as usual - the detailing is exceptional!

 

headliner looks really good.  was it really a straightforward job ?  tempted to give it a go myself but it's uncharted territory for me

Thank you..its time consuming but  little features like these make all the difference..As for the headliner it was one of the easiest jobs so far ..i was unsure myself at first as it has all the potential to go wrong ..The material is very flexible so follows the contours nicely..i simply cleaned  the face of the headliner with brake cleaner ..cut the alcantara oversize to allow for trimming later..applied some spray contact adhesive from screwfix to one half of the headliner first just incase it went wrong ..held the material slightly taught and worked from the middle out..just where the headliner noticeably dips i made sure i used a bit more glue..any creases came out with gentle pressure..repeat for the other side.. trim off he excess and i even re-used the metal clips which hold the original headliner to the frame ..job done in roughly 1 hour..give it a go you will be fine.. :-)

Ok - i get it; you just glued the alcantara over the existing headliner

 

i had to take the headliner off mine to straighten the frame out, so may have to get my wife to show me how a sewing machine works

 

just ordered some alcantara samples to see what works  :proud:

Excellent work on this build. When you repaired the rear doors, what did you do regarding protection on the inside to stop the weld from rusting?

I am looking at the bottom 7" repair kits for mine but not sure how to best protect it after welding as access is limited.

Thanks.. I had to replace one door as it was to rough..and the other just required the return edge repairing..both have been treated inside with dinatrol so should stand up for a few years..

very nice.  static belts are a nice period touch too !!

 

..maybe a period (non-sealed) battery to finish off and provide the inevitable yet authentic acid stains and odour  :lol:

Thanks..the belts are jag not sure which model..they have been in my brothers stash for years..as for the battery I've seen a neat small one used by a guy on another car forum ..he has used them on all his car builds and never had a problem ..power sonic PG-1221B..Have a look see what you think you being a wiring guru.. :-)
