Have you got a finish date from the trimmers?

Looking forward to seeing it on the road!

Hi Steve, not sure. I got the info by email and they have been on hols since. He did say that it will pass the MOT but with a bunch of advisories one being...loose dash. But its just to get it to the trim shop.The trim shop will be trimmania in Wokingham. Now furiously saving as I am sure it wont be a cheap trim.

Hi Nick  thanks, I am looking forward to getting it back, its so close now after 3 years and thanks for your help. The signal converters did the job. Have you made any further decision on yours?

Cheers

Rich

Rich, glad the converters did the trick. I hardly ever use mine, but when I do I just think there's no way I can sell this ! So going to keep it for the moment. Smiley

Glad to hear it. Would you consider doing a show next year? Thats my plan now there is a good chance of a decent turnout. I hardly used mine too, but to be honest I didn't get it to go posing round the streets on a weekend, it was the odd country blast but mainly shows. I guess when it comes back it will be used a bit more to take the kids out, the 8 year old talks about it all the time.

Re: AIG1355 Tarting Up Diary

Hi all,

I have a bit of an update on progress, or lack of.

Things have not gone exactly to plan so time has dragged on.

Following having the front inner bulkhead adjusted I asked for coilovers to be fitted. When the car was MOT'd the coilovers being fitted meant that the wheels were now hitting the bulkhead again so both have had to be re-done which has now been completed.

The trimmers decided they didn't want to tackle the interior as it was and no other trimmer was interested. So, the guys are having to fabricate mounts for the dash and the doorcards, this included adjustments to the dash support bar so the binnacle would fit better. The interior kit from Extreme is pretty poor in fit to say the least. They are now getting on well but its a time consuming job. When done, the trimmers have agreed to remove and trim the stuff (thankfully).

Looks like I may miss another season Sad

A few pics.

Cheers

Rich

Re: AIG1355 Tarting Up Diary

Hi Folks,

Small update. Door cards coming along. These need to get sorted before the dash can be aligned. Some brackets had to be fabricated to fix the OEM door grab handles. The wiring has been re-routed inside the door and window switches have been sourced.

Just spent an absolute fortune on the OEM door openers to finish off the grab handles, hope the wife doesn't see the cost of those  Shocked, just got to get them dipped or similar as they are suffering from the Ferrari Sticky surface.

A few pics.

Cheers
Rich.
