Put a couple of rivnuts in for mounting the headlining back, went well too so will be putting lots more in to replace the clips.
Hopefully have it all refitted by next weekend including the light board.

Stripped the front trims and headlining out

Managed to paint some of the trims and one coat on the headlining before wind stopped play.

Hey, they’ve turned out really good

I’ve added the colour change to my list of mods...

Struggling to find a 5 litre container of autobrite dye, do you have suppliers details?

Used about 3 litres so far but it was cheaper than 1 litre bottles
He may be out of stock but message him and he’ll let you know when back in. Took a couple of days last time he ran out.

Looking really awesome!

Was everything done using the Autobrite dye?

No, tried it on plastic, wasn’t good
Used bumper paint for plastics.

Looking good so far mate. The auto brite dye works a treat by the looks of things
I’m looking forward to seeing the progression with this build

Thank you, very pleased with the autobrite and the paint, hopefully they last.
I’m trying not to add to my build list until I’ve finished the current jobs but it’s not easy being on here and getting ideas.
Need to hold off spending for a while to get the bodywork sorted.
