Hi all,

Right. All done for now.

I still have a detail to finish that will really enhance the look but I don’t have the time right now.

But the centre bar is sprayed now, so ready to fit. Just have to find somewhere to go now

Regards

Vinny

Looking good. Cool

So is that part above a matt black contrasting part?
Will this all move at the touch of a button like the standard stuff or will you have to lift it on and off?
Oh and by centre bar do you mean a brake light part between the humps? If so that’s brilliant attention to detail.

I don’t have a cab so excuse the daft questions, but it’s a very interesting project and definitely one of the best home mods I’ve seen on here. Top marks. Thumb

Hi Marky,

Thank you very much. I always want to stress that I’ve been involved through the process but I’ve worked with a fibreglass fabricator also.

The centre bar is the Matt Black part, and it is contrasting.

Here it is put together but not bolted.

No electrics, will be fitted manually, like the originals.

Speedsters always looked greats but were never practical lol.

I’ll stop these projects one day and just live life.

Thanks again

You guys are great. Really appreciate. Cost me a fortune in the end, always just a bit more to do etc.

Can’t wait to put it on the car and go somewhere.

I can make a few more quicker this time as I know what’s what but can only do it in my spare time when not working as I don’t work in the trade.

I’ll post pics of it on the car as soon as I have a show to go to or maybe just put it on and go out for a drive.

First drive to the Porsche meet yesterday with the Humps on.

One more adjustment but I love the look.
