Headliner, catch can, fuel level sender and door frame

I have finally managed to find some time to work on my own car!  About a month ago I managed to get the Wonderland head lining installed. If any of you follow us on Instagram this is all old news.

Started by measuring the headlining out, and feeding the head lining rods in place.

1 million bull dog clips later.

Before sticking in to place, I placed the new interior light harness from Kroon in place.

Then using high temperature adhesive, we stuck it in.

The finished article, just the bits round the A, B and C pillars to glue down.  I am just awaiting some Alcantara leather to wrap those bits.

I also managed to get my new Mocal oil catch tank all located and buttoned up with vent breather fitted.

I unwrapped the front bumper, I might get around to fitting this soon hopefully!

One of the bits that I have been waiting on for a while is my custom ATL fuel sender, so last Friday afternoon, whilst it was raining, I stayed late and got the plate all drilled out and fitted rivet nuts to locate it down.  I am just waiting on some longer aluminium cap head bolts to finish the job off.

I had been waiting on some parts from the chromer for ages. They were slow, and generally pretty useless, most of the pieces they were refinishing for me I rejected, so they are having to go elsewhere to be re-re-finished.  I did manage to get the driver’s door frame assembled and refitted, all with the brand-new seals in place.

The only other job I have managed to get done was the steering column has been reinstated, and I have been working on my interior dash backdate.  What do you think?

Hopefully I can get the other door frame in tomorrow, and crack on a bit with the dash backdate completion.  The wiring loom is due at some point this month, so I can have fun figuring out where that all goes.  

Stay tuned, and let me know what you think to the build.
