Hey I used to work for UPS .... and I resemble that statement LOL

What can I say when the supervisor is breathing down your neck and you loading a 2 trailors (the long 18 wheelers) and over 3000 packages per truck sometimes you get tired and stressed and take it out on the packages.

Sorry guys it has been all steam ahead. Garage space in Hong Kong is minimal. After we unpacked we had to pack all the stuff into a corner to give my friend room to work and then we had to ferry those smart bins back to my place and store them on my flat roof. It was pouring with rain at the time and the Type-R got hit by freak hail (or stones thrown up by the wind) which caused a load of paint chips on the hood and cracked the windshield in two places

Today the aerial went into the roof and we fitted the new suede headliner. Got the cage back in only to find it was hitting the vanity light (should have left the light out ) Having already cut a hole in the headliner we had to shift it back extending the hole and then fabricate a bezel out of an old number plate to cover the hole in the liner. I think we did a pretty good job. Measured 10 times cut once and the bezel looks factory.

Pictures. Yeah I know I will but honestly after almost three years on jack stands, I am embarrassed to show pictures of the car as it was this morning. Let me wipe the dust off and show a before picture before we start fitting more stuff.

Tomorrow the C and B pillars go in. We fit the Alpine Controller into the headliner (subject to space) run the wires and then fix the roll cage in place. Then it's re-applying sound deadening, dying and fitting the carpet and then the seats.

We will need to do some work on the door cards and rear parcel shelf but interior should be pretty quick (centre console aside - still working on that!)

New headliner, main hoop and vanity light with custom bezel



Visors and Mirror!



Harry's harness bar brackets to tie the main hoop into the B-Pillars



Roll bar cladding ... needs tidying up but I've got that covered a bit later!



Rear Seats are in and fit but it is tight with the cage :-

Going to bed......There's work to be done ......Sleep is over rated.


Damn those seats look good. Give me measurments on the extra suede and I'll get the neighbor to get the pieces so I can ship them with the other stuff.

I will. There is still tidying up to do. We tried measuring for holes for the rear OEM seat hooks but it was impossible because with the seats in place we couldn't get in to measure. So most of the holes are bigger than they need to be. Tomorrow I'm going to grab a length of thin aluminium stripping and measure and cut holes in it with the seats off. Then I'll screw the aluminium in place on the rear parcel shelf over the existing holes to tidy it up. It isn't necessary, but I'm anal.

The rear is going to be a real PITA now since Andy couldn't get the Pontiac parcel shelf for me (someone threw it in the garbage). It needs a humped parcel shelf badly! Time to get creative.

Paul,
Looks hot! Are those Teins for your present Galant or were they from your old wrecked Galant? If they are a E39A application, you want to sell 'em?

Keep up the good work!
