Roof lining

This is another job i have dreaded.  It was not to bad.  Just took a long time to find my starting point.  Using plenty of bulldog clips, I pulled the lining tight all around.  Then using a hot air gun warm the front section and pull and glue to the top windscreen surround edge.  then gradually and carefully fork down both doors,  while keeping the fabric warm and tight.  then move to the rear quarter windows,  Always keeping the lining as warm as possible.  then move to the tail gate top lip, and finally the rear quarter panels down the boot top.

GT6 Dash panels

I had to make up new dash mounting brackets due to new ones not being available

I have had too leave the dash fitting here.  Mainly due to the fact that I want to replace the heater ducting pipework.  This is proving to be hard to get hold of.

For reference the GT6 Mk3 ducting diameters are as follows

De mister ducting-  38mm  or 1 1/2 inches

Dash vents – 44mm or 1 3/4 inches.

I have sourced the pipework from  http://www.bighealey.co.uk/content/wire-reinforced-flexible-ducting-pipe here on a next day delivery.

The Mounting brackets were fabricated with M4 countersunk screw welded into 16 gauge strips of steel.  these need to be screwed into the back of the left and right dash panels and aligned in the body to sit square with the  corresponding burr walnut panels.

I hope to be attacking this job at the weekend and maybe even attempting to start the car…

Most of the dash is in.  I am waiting for a new Tack cable before I complete the installation.
