Looking good Gary, those alloy seats really suit the car and look to be just the right size.

THEY DO LOOK THE PART ...A little thicker material and they would be excellent ...but as they are , as long as they are bolted down nice and securely ...they work out ok ..

Fibreglass trans tunnel on its way and we can pretty much sign off the interior as done ...

My customer sent me a Herald style gearbox tunnel cover he bought on ebay ..




It needed modifying to fit the A352 ...I had to cut reliefs for the fire extinguisher etc. but the main issues was it was 50mm to low at the gearstick.
I cut this section , splinted it with a 40mm gap and fibreglass the join...this allowed the stick to protrude through and the tunnel to sit down correctly ..

The car is now ready to go back to Denmark .
The bodywork and final detailing etc. will be finished off over there ...

The car will be painted BRG , which was its original colour ..the black wires should compliment it very nicely ...

Can't get enough rivets


Inner wheel arches needs trimming to fit the 15 inch dunlop alloys.


Trimmed and ready

I chose to fill up every rivet with filler to make them look like the real thing. Sanding down everything

Using a matte black industrial grade filler. Was thinking about keeping it in flat black for a while

Nice. The Dunlop alloys suit it, not cheap though...
