Well it has been quite sometime since I posted anything. It has not been from lack of interest.
After falling ill just about a year ago, I just had my new hi-perf part installed. Just went thru heart transplant surgery and hope to be back on the project soon. I left off doing the wiring and since being laid up I have some new interior ideas. So stay tuned...

Well here is the finished product. Needs a little clean up with some glue over spray on the lower accent panel ( I'll get to that in a minute)

The window frame install is next to finish it off completely.

The lower gray accent piece is a continuation from the front door (next shot). I outlined the position on the cushion. Above the outline is where the arm rest will be installed. You can see the mounting studs.

Well that takes care of the driver's side. One down, one to go.

Here's what I have so far. Only the edges away from the front and top of the panels are glued to the ABS.

Next I cut the material with appropriate overlap. (next shot)

Glued the material onto the cushion following the same procedure as with the cushion only on the bottom edge and side near the arm rest.

Now the panel can be attached to the car by folding back the cushion material.

Next, I taped off the area that I want to glue the cushion to. I'm only attaching the material to the left and below the tape for now.

Once glued the tape is removed.

OK, epoxy dry and now I have one panel instead of two for each side. (first shot)

Next cut the cushion material (1/4" thick) to fit the panels. (next shot)

Next cut the material to fit the panel. Make sure to leave enough to lap over to the back side. You can see the marks on the back of the material. (next shot)
