Thank you guys for your comments.Blushing

A little more done to the engine. Some more wiring and detail added, think I’m finished with this now.ThumpUp
The next stage was to carpet the floor and add the pedals, gear lever and handbrake. I have also used some liquid chrome for the hand brake button as shown.

This next stage was to finish the leather seats and fit them all to the interior. The rear was also lined with leather and fitted. The backs of the rear seats were carpeted which also hides the screw holes.
Once they were fitted, I started on the dashboard. I decided to line the front part of the dash with leather leaving the rear part as it comes, this gives it a two-tone appearance for effect. The final picture shows the dashboard temporarily in place.
Now onto the main body, more soon.

A little more done to the Porsche build. Before I have attached the flooring and rear engine bay, I soldered some cables and speaker to the main wiring on the board, the cables of which have been run under the floor. The speaker was then fixed in the little void at the back of the seating area as shown. This now gives the illusion of the engine noise coming from the rear.

Next, I started on the front compartment. Looking at some original pictures, I toned the petrol tank accordingly and sprayed the first half of the hose the same way. The rear back panel was painted white to match the rest of the interior. The heater pipes were lined with aluminium tape and some metallic paint applied in places. These will be left exposed. Still quite a lot to do in this area, such as more piping, water bottles and wiring loom to be added.

More soon.

Finished off the leathering of the inner body panels as well as the door panels. Attached all the cables and wired them all together, then connected the upper and lower halves, octopus hands were needed.Crying.

Fitted the windscreen and back screen together to finish off.Love

More pictures in the finished gallery.

Thanks all for looking in and your comments over the last few months.BigGrin Cool
