This last picture shows the tape removed, and the rest of the black on the skeleton.
The following picture is a request. We still need to find one more of these smaller, armrests, ivory in color. The one on the bottom is not useable, as it is cracked, and broken. Just need the plastic bottom part, not the stainless.
This driver door had 12 bullet holes in it, along with this bad spot in the top corner. Instead of leading these in, I decided to put in a patch, weld it in, then lead out the inconsistencies.
And the door mounted, ready for paint after a final blocking.
Some of the hard parts waiting to be painted.
Sometime in the next week or two, we'll be plumbing the hydraulic lines for the top and windows. The rubber conduit came from Steele Rubber Products. The rubber lines were supplied by Dale Cooper and the rest of the fittings and the lines came from our local Napa. Almost unbelievably, there is nearly 100' of tubing to run for top and windows.
And a shot of the inside of the driver door. Painted, waiting for the internal hardware to be installed.
More to come, shortly!! I'll try and do a better job of posting regularly now that we're making some good visual progress.
