Seat fitting was put on temporary hold as found an awful lot of water in the passenger footwell. Best I can see so far is it’s a few failed (and missing) grommets, so waiting on delivery of them.

Back to the rear seats, with the brackets welded in and everything primed it was time to fit the all the trim.

Typically the trim arrived in just one big bag and it was like doing a giant jigsaw )granted it was a fairly easy one) with only a vague idea of the final image.

Next is too take the seats back out, these quick release style seats are brilliant! and give everything a good bloody clean.

A note for next time. Don’t leave it all in the shed to go mouldy!

Next up is to modify the original trim so the new stuff can fit properly and so it doesn’t stick into the foot wells and then paint it all so it matches. (Or carpet/rubber mat. Undecided)

Fitted my new headlights and air con panel, just needs re gassing and should be good to go.

Now the carpet has fully dried out and I have (I think) sorted the leak I’ve sound deadened the passenger footwell and started to put everything back. Image
