Back out in the garage this week, and I got into painting the dash. After a lot of requests I included a new segment called "Fun Facts with Mrs Jeff" Very Happy

Well since my car was looking all nice and painted, I decided it was time to cut it up again. This week I get stuck into mounting up the front mounted oil cooler.

Well this week I have spent a lot of time and it doesn't really feel like I have done very much, but I now have headlights, indicators and horn grills fitted to the car. It is actually starting to look like a car again Very Happy

Thanks mate. I know on most of these type of builds people tend to buy everything new, but I prefer to try and give them another chance at life Wink

I spent this week tidying up more of the wiring and connecting up the heater fan. It doesn't feel like I got a lot done, but just getting all of the dash wiring sorted is a big step.

Well this week has been interesting. I thought I would add another challenge into the mix and try to learn how to sew. I bought myself an old industrial sewing machine and my first project was to make a headliner for the car, then install it. I am pretty happy with the results, particularly as I have never used a sewing machine before.

Last weeks efforts of putting the headliner in didn't go too well in the end and half of it started coming away as I didn't ahve enough clips. So this week I gave it another go and it looks much better. Then I played with my washer bottle and shoved some seats in the car.

Here is the vid.

I have been busy doing my research on sound deadening. I had always had the idea of smothering everything in Dynamat and call it a day. After looking into it more it seems there is more to it than that, if you actually want the cabin a nice place to be. In this episode I go into detail about how to correctly sound insulate the car.

This week I have been busy making my own carpet kit for the car. I had a go at making the removable sound deadening/carpet pieces but, well here is the vid that will show you how it all went.

After a bit of time away from the 911, this week I got stuck back in and made some door trims. You can now see my colour selection for the interior.

Still working out the details and sourcing parts. The engine is still sitting on the shelf in the back of my workshop and in those boxes until we get the details sorted.

What I can tell you is that, I will be going to the US to have a go at machining some of the parts myself. Then all of the parts will get shipped back and I will build the engine.

Hopefully more news soon.

This week I continued trimming the rear panels in the car. I needed to make a recesses in the side panels to clear the roll cage. This trimming is very time consuming but I am really enjoying it.

Sorry for the late video. Everything worked against me this week, and I got a lot less done than I hoped. I at least got a start on trimming the seats, so hopefully next week I will be able to finish it off.

This week I have been tweaking and refining the leather to fit the seat properly and I have finally gotten the outcome I was after.
