Default Interior Finished

I have been rebuilding a 5exi for nearly two years now. It was in a sorry state when I bought it and IMO, one step away from the scrapyard.
Anyway, besides completely refurbishing the suspension, one of the other big jobs, was getting the interior done.
For all intents and purposes, it is now complete. Phew!
Some before & after shots.
Now to fit the windscreen...

Looking good, well worth the effort I would say

What did you do to the dash, is it wrapped or painted?

Hi Alex, thanks for the kind words.
I wrapped it with 4-way stretch vinyl material and used high temperature contact adhesive. It's about 1mm thick.
It was my first attempt at doing something like this so although I can pick fault, I am really pleased with the end result.

Thanks :-)
The car was SVA'd May 2006 (not by me). I bought it in April 2016 in a terrible condition and have been working on it ever since...
Getting to the end of the long slog now and I'm hoping to be at Stoneleigh with it this year

Ok cool - had a look at that stuff, might have to try it out!

What’s next in your agenda? Time to remove the dust sheets soon and blow off the cob webs
