At this point in the
assembly, I am ready for upholstery.
All the panels have
been fitted and are ready for covering.
It's so nice to live
in a small town. My upholstery guy volunteered to come out to my shop
on a Saturday with his crew and tools to install the carpet. The other
alternative was to trailer my car out to his shop and he was worried that
the presence of the car would attract a lot of local interest. He was
concerned about too many people getting up close and personal with my new
paint job. They came out over two Saturdays and did a great job.
He re-covered the
seats in a better leather and used Red thread as the trim. I also
installed my Simpson harnesses. I had to special order these because
they normally don't produce them in 2" wide belts because these are not
track legal. Fortunately, I have a Simpson Race Shop close by and I
went there so they could personally put together just what I wanted. I
also purchased all the clips I needed to mount the belts to my frame mounts.
The final product.
electrical parts, I painted the inside of the panels with the same
undercoating that I put on the underside of the body. In this bay will
go all the electrical gear: battery, contactor, ground bus, and Battery
This is everything
installed except the battery strap.
Both sides are covered
with some fiberglass covers which will get a leather cover as well.
Let's go cruising!!!!
