I had a busy day Monday and Today. I firstly had a day in the machine shop finished the hood sticks (see picture) mod to allow the roll bars to fit nicely. Also made some stainless cup washers for the door catches and some extended nuts to make fitting the hood rear section easy all in stainless.
We also made a couple of new spacers for the rear hood bolts where they fit into the door pillars and today got the boot seal fitted, at last secured the purchase of some blue dash bulbs for the instruments (What a relief I bought forty to make sure i have plenty of spares.) The trimmers have made a really small piped section to fit along the bottom of the instrument panel and the upholstery just finishes it off nicely. Carpets are being bound tomorrow plus got the closures around the roll bar mountings behind the seats made, plus lots of sundries like blanking the old seat belt mount holes and cleaning the cab ready for carpet.
I have also fabricated two jigs for the roll bars so i can replicate them at some juncture (see rollbar section if you want to buy a set)
Well today got the underside painted and got the doors out of hibernation and started building them up. I got a slight problem I had forgotten about last owner fitted ridiculously large door speakers so now have to glass in a section to allow fitment of the regular size speaker. I also got the offside front wing blocked back cut and polished looks really good not just shiny but deep colour well pleased, then fitted the bezel to that side so one down three to go wings that is.
I also picked up the roll bars from Aerocoat today they look amazing! Got the wiring for the new mirrors sorted and had a trial run with the lower part of the dash. I also picked up the new Chimaera badge for the rear end so coming along slowly.
Another day in the TVR mill ,trimmers have now finished around the windscreen got the Leven vents in I like the look very much. Got the other rear light fixed in place and made up the covers for the access to the new headlights in the inner wings. Rear light glasses tomorrow and then start on the doors. I got the new rubbers for mirror to door for the carrado units so will get them all on and the door cards ready to hang the doors, I think I will leave the windscreen till the dash is all in just so much easier with no glass in the way.
