Another small

Managed to get some time yesterday and today to build the ignition coil. Usually it’s mounted on the back of the intake just behind the carby, but I don’t have enough space there for it so decided to go with it on the inner fender... this should be the last item for the engine bay for now, as I want to start on getting the interior installed... will come back to the engine bay later on to do the radiator over flow bottle, radiator hoses etc.

Any who....here’s a few pics....watcha think?

Nice! The coil looks right at home on the inner fender. The engine bay looks crazy good! It's funny how when you add details in one place, it makes you want to add even more details on the other parts of the build to match hahaha that means more work for you but that's good for us looking, and every bit makes it that much more awesome!

Lol...! Yeah...was hoping for spectacular update at 3:00am this morning, but ran into another obstacle... gonna have to mod or remake the door cards, as the seats donít fit with them installed. itís what happens when you build parts and then try to assemble them 3 years later..

Time for another Kinda lol

So here’s what’s been accomplished so far... had to modify the driver’s seat as it was in too much of a reclined position and needed to be more upright. I then had to figure out how I was attaching the floor to the chassis, found some threaded bolt holes on the top of the chassis that worked out pretty sweet. Then I got some magnets installed on both seats and then installed magnets under the floor to attach the seats. Once I got that dialed in, I finally primed and painted the floor...
After it dried, I started to lay down the carpet....not an easy task...but I think I did okay with it.... Lol. Then I had to figure out a way to mount the center console, I think I will still need to rework the arm-rest on the console as it looks to small, the 1:1 looks bulkier...lol....
Got the door cards assembled, then hit a major snag, the seats get hung up on the door handles and just won’t drop in to attach to the locating magnets... I tried various angles etc but no worky...
So will probably rebuild the door cards with the standard trim that the Sandman came with. The trims that I did were for the premier editions.

Anywho... enough of my anguish ( I can see 2Beers rubbing his hands with glee lol at my pains ...lol... joking bud!) here’s a few pics of where it’s at...

Seriously.....
WOW!
You know how long I waited for that update ?
ahahahah. 5 Years......

Holly smokes. I knew it was going to be totally awesome to see it all painted, detailed and set inside that body.

My Eye's Are Happy.
Killer job Trini.

I'll be drooling on that update for a long time.

If I may suggest just one simple Idea.
Should really finish the Inner motor compartment and be easy for you.
I know you lack air cleaner space when hood is shut.

Idea though for a finished look and should be a very simple addition with your skills.

Make a card for inner hood reinforce detail.
You could cheat and make a circle recess for the air cleaner spot..Like on some cowl induction hoods. Most would think it's stock.

Let me know if that would work.
One more idea if it wont.
Make a stencin and maybe paint the looks of reinforcement ...Ö
And some body filler or thin styrene to plug around the magnet on the snoot opening.

EDIT: I found a great picture. Of the inner details that should work.

Awesome update for the new year. I'm so impressed with that interior! Unmatched skills on the seats and dash.

It's sooo pretty!
