      Well there were 2, now there is only one!

      I needed to fill a gap in the rear bottom section of the console, so I decided to sit one on top of the other and carve out the center part and glued them together. By doing this I gave it some strength in case someone were to put their weight onto it.





      The blue section I plan on carpeting.

      Then I began to make a few brackets to begin to solidify thing a little.



      Tomorrow I will finish some epoxy it still needs, and scuff and paint it trim black to freshen it up some.

      Almost there!!!

      Can't wait for summer...

      Did some final fitting of odd and ends, reinforced it, painted it, may still give another finish coat later once I install it for good.





      still want to add carpet at the bottom.

      And one more in car shot, this time all black!







      Waiting on the machine shop for my handbrake parts.
      I got my new innovate a/f gauge

      Now on to the side panels and door panels, so I can mod them and ship them Out to get recovered!

      Heads up Tim, they are headed your way soon....

      When you make one or a few sets for me and ship it to germany...how much will it cost?

      I think some other guys here in germany will have much fun with this good stuff too...

      Or do you have a DIY intruction for me? How do you get the foils transparent for the lights shining trough? Is this any special foil/paper or what is it?

      what are you doing for needles? I used to make gauge faces for the corrados the only option i ran into for needles was to paint them florescent orange or a day glo color and use a black light led.

      making the needles glow by light was a pia if the gauge cluster was not built for it. most needles that light up have a light source at the center then the circle is painted black at the base to hide that light and the needle is clear plastic

      Ok. Let´s see it all done and the we will see if we can make a little shipping line to germany.

      Ya I looked into needles but from what I found it is a real pita, getting universal needles, getting a small smd led or other and so on, not really worth it, I to some uv LEDs instead (as mentioned), and just paint the needles, should look fine!

      Another issue with the lit needles is weight balance of the needle which may throw off the accuracy of the gauges.

      Can't wait!

      Also have the volt and the heater controls too! Hoping it will look oem+

      Sol we're off! Got some time finally to get back to work.

      Decided to start by cleaning up a bit, some may want to remove as much wires as. Possible, but I prefer to see how much we can stuff in!



      But seriously I began to clean a of it up and relocate the multiple alarm/ power window/ etc modules and relays from the rear seat area to their new home under the dash at the front of the console.

      Also pulled part of the carpet to prep the floors for paint, then sound deadener install, then ........

      New carpet!!!!! Tray!!

      The rear cleaned up a bit


      Some of the weathered drivers side floor to be painted.



      Hopefully the momentum continues tomorrow!

      Thanks, I was hoping to be done on the interior at this point, but now I am aiming to get the front half of the cabin done so I can drive it as I get the rest done during the summer.

      Well today was fun , made the handbrake bracket since the floor pain was still a bit tacky to install the sound deadner stuff.

      Welded up the parts and it seems to line up nicely. Added a machined Teflon bushings on the oem hand brake pivot point and tada!!

      Now all I need to do is drill 2 holes in the floor and add riv nuts to bolt it down.

      I wish the new carpet I bought came in one piece...

      I like ride height alteration in either direction.
