Hi all well I'm back off my hols and after a huge amount of hacking and jiggling I managed to make the interior fit.

I changed the centre pillar from leather to wood I like the contrast between the leather and the wood (I think it looks more luxurious)

Still got the dash to do, thinking of adding rev counter and oil pressure gauge, wondering if I should add a more modern Speedo.








It's the marble effect, dead easy , I think I posted a how to if not get get back to me and I will.

Hi all well I don't like the bulge in the boot with the tyre so I'm doing away with it and am going to go without a spare. Not decided yet but I may add a spolier to the boot.

Hi all well this is As far as this is going looking like this anyway, it's off the bench while I do a bit of research and catch up on some of my stalled builds.

When it returns to the bench I'm going to attempt to do it as a steampunk car.
