Agree from asthetic perspective but sorry thay are staying, heated and electrically adjustable, right size, right colour and comfortable for longish french trips!

Laon it is!

I do know what you mean but my drivers seat has a hole in it so something will have to be done. I was intending to swap the heating pads over. I'm not too worried about the new seat not being electric, I'm not letting the wife drive it so it will only need adjusting once.

Jag - Please do a thread on your seat and transfer of heat pads.

I want to do similar but need heated seats for the frosty morning trips :-)

I was simply going to peel off the heat pads from the original seats and fit them to the replacement seats.

Good youtube video for aftermarket heat pads.

Try mine in Laon - only thing missing from list is heated part - they're on the original electric runners. I think the cheaper buckets are definitely not comfortable for long trips but these are really comfortable - honest lol.

Got a new set of these off eBay for 500

Thanks Scott! I appreciate the offer and will do that if you don't mind.

They really look nice, problem I had when fitting the Rover 75 ones was it lifted the whole height so my eye line was the top of the windscreen, therefore I was having duck down to see out, these look a slimmer profile on the base.

Cheers.

Thumbs up Some detailing

Hi all,

Really trying to make use of the lighter nights, managed to get some Campagnolo detailing on the spinners, and added 2 rear number lights, as per original, inspired by Nubodi's No.7.

I was initially reluctant to put them on but when I saw No.7 I was sold so drilled away! Heres some pictures

Default Brackets have arrived.....yay!

I have had some smaller brackets fabricated (Lazer cut and machine polished as they will be very prominently placed) for the front screen, they have arrived today, They give me alot of play for the final fitment with elongated slots, so have now removed gap under screen and have kept the correct angle. Here are some pictures of the brackets with CAD diagram and tomorrow the drilling/final fit will commence.

Looks like a snug fit against the bonnet. Not bad work from a cardboard template !

I commend the expert metal craftsman who built it from that flimsy bit of cardboard!



They are a genius!

Talking

I committed to the screen and drilled away and fixed it, it looks great and is a subtle addition to the car at some angles you dont see it, but at other angles it 'pops' out

Theres a little bit of daylight coming under the middle part, but hardly noticable, overall its around 90% flush to surface.

Talking Out and about - a glorious weekend!

Hi all,

I have pretty much come to the end of my build now, so starting to enjoy driving it, here is a video showing the car all ready to go.

With over 300 miles done this weekend, all is good, here is another one of some pictures and driving with sound.....
