Once I got the dash all cut I made a sealed box inside of the dash so the air could only come through the new vents , here's a pic with the vents fibreglassed in place ,

Hi Simon ,guys  ok so the dash continued iv finished all the prep on the dash put a coat of plastic primer on it, then primed it with primer filler so that's ready to rub out and paint black again , not to bore you with all the pictures of filling the dash to make it perfect so here's a few ,
The next job was the steering wheel , with the universal steering wheel and boss removed I managed to redrill the boss so it bolted straight on the the new st wheel,   job done, it looks great , cheers .

Looking great JD/Simon.
Love the vents JD very clever.
Doubt if ever I'd do it or be able to but I was just wondering what filler you use around the vents. I presume It's fairly flexible and spongy because the dash is soft isn't it.
Cheers in advance and loving the updates. :)

Hi Simon ,guys , ok with the dash done it was time to start the cockpit bulkhead , Simon managed to get an original Oem window so I bonded it into the extreme bulk and fitted that securely in place , then I made  the lower frame and welded that in place , next was to make some panels up and seal it all in place , that just leaves the window surround parts to fit and seal , ok so while that was all drying I repositioned the battery so it would clear the Oem engine frame Simon required, I rested the engine frame in place in accordance with the Oem engine side panels to see how  it looks and it will look sweet , ok some pics f,or now cheers jd

Hi Simon, guys,  ok update for this week , iv finished fitting the top window surrounds on the bulk head and sealed them all in place another job off the list , next up was to move the fuel filler to the correct side of the car  so iv cut all the nessassary holes ready for the new filler neck ( off to the breakers yard next week ) I'll also get the new Audi Windows which is the next job after I finish the fake engine build up , pics will follow next week cheers jd

Hi Simon , guys , this weeks update , ok with the bulk finished and sealed I sprayed some black textured pain in the rear engine compartment ( boot lol ) to tidy it all up, then I started on the fuel filler pipe move, once it was all disconnected from the drivers side I rerouted it to match up with the new filler neck on the pasenger side , once that was done I filled the old hole that  was left in the rear quarter , just waiting on some fuel hose to connect it all up now . And then  finish the fuel cap .
I then made and bolted a bar to the Oem engine cradle and fitted a hinge so it can be lifted up to store things underneath , next job is to now build up the ferrari fake engine  :), here's a few pics for now .

Love the engineering gone into the bulkhead, looks right and will strengthen the car too.

Such a shame this excellent work is coming to an end, but JD you must remember, if for any reason it doesn't work out for you at your new place, please come back, you could even go mobile, and be the Nakai-San of the tailor made Ferrari creation, that legendary guy who does bodykits on the 911. Food, accommodation etc provided, just get a big van!
