Until the thub returns, I use the time to work on everything else:

Door cut-outs are to small and don't look that good:



As I decided to remove stereo I will increase and change layout of the opening. Here is the result of about 20 versions I created and compared:



...And I received my new steering wheel today

Today I received new rear light housings. I decided to buy aftermarket plastic ones, lighter and cheaper then stock. My old ones had almost no more shiny chrome inside. I spray-painted them a few years ago with chrome effect, but it did not last long and was not really shiny either...

Made some molding tools to cut the foam panel with my homemade cutter



It's a simple construction with a hot wire (made for this application) using a power supply (not on pic). Costs about 100 USD all in all



And that the result, a nice moulding that is pretty precise to use for laminating

I think you need a therapist - like now!

BTW: that steering wheel looks like a Mod 7 but in leather rather than swede/alcantra . . .

Door panels laminated and removed from moulding. Unfortunatly I had issue with parting agent, was too old...





But not a big thing. Only a bit more working on the surface before painting
