    Side trim depends on what they are made from ,either can be rechrome or more likely made from stainless steel can be straightened and metal polished.

    You welcome ,happy to help. It was nice to meet you.
    The body does look like it is a good base to start with and it doesn't look like their is to much rust that is unexpected . Roof is in really good shape.
    Speak to Dodd and see what he has to say and what he may recommend.

    That is one company the other is kustom kombi Jamie Hage 0414857259 .There your two options for rock n roll beds.
    I might know what mystery item no2# . It normally would have headlining material and it's fixed on the inside as a trim piece to cover the hole in the roof, just a thought.
    How the engine removal go? or shouldn't I ask.:oops:;):)

    (Passenger side….)

    Speedo cable comes through the back of the stub axle assembly and is driven by the square hole in the hub…..secured in place by the clip.

    Have you disconnected it from the back of the Speedo itself ?
    Reach behind the speedo, trace the speedo cable sheath to the back of the gauge.
    There’ll be a knurled plastic, threaded retainer…..undo the retainer and dislodge it from the gauge.
    You should then be able to pull the cable itself through/from the gauge end of the cable assembly….
    What manual are you using ?
    Cheers,
    Mark
