    The roof lining is now in, and while she was there thought may as well get the carpets fitted out. Door cards and seat upholstery will be under way, while I try to assemble the windows and dash... I don’t think I will make the Nats... 25A58349-4F65-4FFC-BC04-6D84CE118996.jpeg

    Don't forget to fit your Reconditioned Lock Back Housing before the trim is fitted, or you will have to remove the trim again later to access the screw that comes from the inside.

    Thanks Dale, you are right, best I reassemble the sliding door before I forget.
    On the home stretch, wiring, dash then windows remain.
    Nervously excited, it was quite awhile ago when the bits and bobs were disassembled....

    Thanks Wayne, I needed to be talked out of a blue pipiping, luckily I am easily convinced, would have been over the top.
    The material was found by my upholsterer, he sourced it out of somewhere thankfully.

    Good stuff.

    Thanks guys, getting closer now. Glass is in except the windscreen, which we are leaving out until the dash wiring is completed, it much easier to access.
    It’s the little things now that are holding up the progress, hopefully we can start knocking those off, this week. 52DEB727-C77E-4F32-8299-6820E4F85A5E.png
    My guy has done the seat upholstery now to the door cards..

    Thanks guys, we can see the finish line. A couple of challenges still remain, but hopefully she will be on the road in two weeks..... maybe I shouldn’t have said that..
