got both bins removed and the headlining lip, the lip was awful to do because i didnt want to go through to the roof! shame about the thousands of black metal debris on the windows though (didnt anticipate the grinder spoiling them like that!)

Today i will use thinner on the floor to remove all tar traces, ready for primer! - this time not leaving it a primer finish :dozing:

weight reducing the servo mount too, many holes to be drilled! (thanks MOWOG for that idea!)

If you want to junk the heater you can get heated strips in the glass to demist the screen.

carpets???????? they were out about half a year ago :P

the heater yes i want to do something about it of course, but in the winter the entire car will steam up, not just the windscreen (which i do plan to fit one with heated strips to)

well all tar is removed now, time to cellose it :teehee: this stuff is so strong its incredible

Custom subframes should be done by tonight too, pics will come when i get a chance! Also test fitting my new wheel nuts for my new alloys - 10 x 7 splits
