The custom inner door panels I have fabricated [built due to the poor quality of the panels which were supplied] meant the door returns on the body would also require replacement.
Firstly the whole inner door would have to be made slightly larger otherwise the doors would never open! To do this I used potters clay rolled out and flattened into strips 1/8" thick [easier said than done, messy job]. This was laid over the door then covered with cling film to stop the moisture from attacking the gel coat [it would never cure]
Parcel tape was also used in places.

I missed updating in April BUT plenty went on anon!
The centre consol and rear panel behind seats have been constructed using the same materials and principals as the dash
I ran out of white primer so mustard coloured primer will have to do!
The removable white panel to the lower area of the centre consol will be upholstered in what ever materials are decided upon at a later date

The insert will be polished and chromed to match the rest of the interior trim. Aluminium cones are still to be machined which when pressed into the gauge holes, will finish off the dash insert.

The finishing touch I had in mind for the dash using, was to machine a custom billet insert designed to give the same distinctive grill the car has. The Dakota digital gauges would sit central inside the insert. The lack of switches on the dash gives it that clean look which appeals to me.
