I understand why you would put it to a pro trimmer but did you fancy trying it yourself? You're obviously not one to outsource too many jobs and seem to tackle most things?


I wanted the stitch detail on the side and had no way of doing that myself

I spent an hour chasing an electrical gremlin this afternoon, hopefully that’s put to bed now.

 

Once that was out of the way I completed the carpet fitting around the door areas.

 

Then finished off by slotting the tunnel into position. It still needs fixing but that won’t take long.

I had already done the application and paid the test fee, so all I had to do was phone up and see what dates were available.

Mind that paintwork 😉.

Looking really good, sure it will make good first impression on the examiner. Keep up the good work.

Floor carpets are next, but they will be Velcro’d so hopefully I am finished with the contact adhesive 😷

I intend to fit a Cobra replica gear-lever once registered, but for now I need to do something for a gearknob.

 

This is one I had in the garage from an MX5 as the gearbox didn’t have a knob on it when I got it.

I decided to have a go at improving it. I put an M10 bolt into it and stuck it in the drill. The drill went into the vice and then I cable tied the trigger into the on position. An instant mini lathe 😂

 

I sanded it all down, and then applied a layer of filler over it.

Then sanded the filler down.

Then I applied primer, colour and 2K clearcoat.

It’s come out ok and much more presentable. Just needs a few days in the house to cure a bit more
