Fibreglass was used to box in the area below the seats.
The space below the seats will be used for electrical equipment.
With white primer back in stock I dusted over all areas to give a better look at how the interior will turn out.

All areas in white will be coloured to match the exterior paint scheme.

All upper blue/grey areas will be smoothed with 1/4 - 1/2 inch foam then covered in what ever material is decided. Lower areas with carpet.

Door and consol panels will also be covered in matching material

The passenger door returns were as previous so no build pics.
With both doors now a great fit closed and open I decided to concerntrate on building interior panels ie- hiding the cage and making upholstery an easy task.
The centre consol area needs access to the shifter so removable panels were made from thin steel sheet.

In the first pic you can see the first phase of construction of the column cover.
MORE TO FOLLOW AT A LATER DATE when I can fettle the bugger out

After curing, holes were cut into the new panel where the hinges slot in [panel still stuck to the door].
The door was then lifted into position and all the excess trimmed until the door was able to fit into it`s closed position.
Once all was well the panel was then glassed to the body from inside the car, then left to cure.
With the door pushed open the shape is revealed. After cleaning and preparing of all the external joining areas, the joints were glassed over from outside.
The gutter edge, which was also in a poor state was cut back and a new lip glassed in. This would also serve as extra joining support for the new panel.

The whole area is now ready for sanding down before making smooth with plastic body filler.
But before we can get on with that there`s the small problem of door number two :-(

Continuing on, white gel coat was painted over then the fibreglass was laid up [two layers of 450]
