Make sure that the opening catch and the lid don't touch the bodywork when yo open the cap, otherwise, it will damage the paintwork. It doesn't look as if you have enough clearance.

No worries. Plenty of clearance there.
Good point for all to follow.

Getting ready to order the flocked door aperture bulb seal trim from CBS,
How many meters should I get for both doors?

hi there.

here at c.c. we buy it on the roll and cut off as needed but as a general rule for door trim/boot trim/seals
measure doors and 15 cm extra to be trimmed off when you're happy with the fit ��better too much than too little

happy building

Should have made my question more clear.
Is the complete door aperature trimmed with the bulb seal, or just the upper area where the Z3 door seals are present?

Thanks

Best to do it all Jack,

Less chance of a leak with only one join plus it will all look the same and be uniform.

Good luck with the build. I am a month in, very slow Iím afraid but trying to sort out the interior first. Want modern features in a classic form.

My progress has also been quite slow as I am fixing things after "help" by some friends.
Good idea to get the interior finished first. Mush easier than doing it later (as I must do).

Working out what to put where on the dash and centre console is causing me some headaches. I am going to put the electric seat switches behind the handbrake and hide some switches in an ashtray. Double din head unit looks great but. It at all in period so may try and conceal it.
All part of the fun in building a car 😁👍

Be persistent and try to accomplish something everyday.

Weather permitting, of course. Facing new or unknown challenges is part of the feeling of accomplishment!

Hi jack, sorry for delay its chaos here since taking over from Nubodi ref the tribute builds and sales so I am a little behind on forums!

Jeff H is spot on, keep it uniform, looks better and less leaks.


We shoud be online more soon, with advice and more build info, we are just about to progress the build of a 250 Koupe as a demonstrator and will log the builds finest moments for the home builder,

I realise this doesn't help you with a Kali, but our Kali (bought before we started company) is having the super duper interior treatment soon and there will be more info and pics along the way.

Feel free to pop to website www.classiccoachworks.org, or call me 07986 291525, if you have any questions, always happy to help, free advice etc, regardless if you bought direct from tribute, from us, or were a previous customer of Nubodi


happy building, sorry for huge message, watch this space and we will start to list more info.

( plus complete kit car mag running a news flash introducing us 1st feb, and should be in TKC next issue or the one after with a hello world interview and an amazing Kobra rep)


Belle.

WILCO!

Weather cleared, managed to get my small bonnet mould finished and make a part. A little left to do on it. Fit is now perfect.
just propped up with paint sticks in pic.

Nice work.

But can you remind me why you needed to make your own?

Good luck, Paul.
