Progress at last,
Have managed to form the dash in ply and fibreglass then cover in one piece of vinyl including the instrument pod..


.

.

.


Still needs trimming up and the final veneer laid to the right of the pod, then its varnish and rubbing down and a final bit of edging trim along the bottom, mocked it up with the dials just to see if it works..
Please ignore the fact the car looks more like a skip at the moment, long overdue clear up to come soon.

Cheers Pops

Very nice Pops, love the veneer and vinyl dashboard

I did a herald convertible in 2008 with a similar dashboard. Loved the walnut veneer.

That looked good. This ones Chilean laurel i hope it will look the part when varnished and trimmed. Maybe a grab handle on the passengers side will break it up a little.

Dash looks good to me.

And the inside of your car looks a lot tidier than the two shells on my drive.

Good luck, Paul.

Now i have the engine running it quickly became apparent I had mounted my exhausts too close to the diff as it hit when turning, when i dropped it down the cut outs in the rear valence were going to be way too big,


therefore some Sammio remedial action required,
.


Bridged in glass and formed with u pol and resin mix i have begun forming the new cut outs and eyebrows, hope it will look the part when blended in.
.

.

.
The good news is I have started the sanding process, slow but steady progress, I am sure i could have been finished if I didnt get so hung up on details..

Do you mean the compressor on the left or the Herald Convertible on the right?

Looking very nice 'Pops. Can't wait to have a four car Norfolk cruise this summer.

Just remind me, what colour are you going for?

Hi Towed this week its Silver again last week Candy red, previously old english white.
Jaguar Rhodium Silver, black stripes is holding favourite position at the moment. I know you are going Silver but i think the difference even in similar colours will be huge.
