Really love the pattern and material that you did for the seat cover, it looks great! Personally I would have kept the separated headrest but that's really just a matter of opinion. Is there a reason that the material looks "looser" than the factory seat? Did you reuse the metal bars from the factory cover and stitch them into the underside of your covers and staple them back to the foam?

Yes indeed it is loose in some places. I used the original metal straps, but my cover was just not perfect replica of the old one and add to that a new headrest there were some imperfections. I may end up redoing in the future. I'll make sure I take more time with the driver's seat, but in the end it's my first time doing anything like this and I lack experience as a tailor.

Certainly you're very talented and for just taking on these tasks you're doing a fantastic job. I'm sure you're learning more as you go along and it will just keep getting better and better! smile.gif

Finally :















Some minor things to be touched up, but this gives you an idea how it will look. The material is the same as the seats, kinda feels like suede.
Port will be painted black, a grill will be made. One more door to go...5 days to competition!

A bit bulky for my taste, but must sound proper. The seat design is fantastic.

Shift boot cover. It was bare wood for a while, but is now the same as the doors.

It's a great armrest. smile.gif
Bulky, but no other way to make the doors ported.

Wow, you've achieved quite some work here.
I think its really interesting that your car runs on LPG! can you give more information about how you converted the car to LPG?

nice work on all you've done.

Thanks.
It's quite common here for cars to have LPG. Big % of gas stations provide it alongside with gas and diesel.
I'm not that informed on the topic ,but basically you have a tank for the LPG and an evaporator that makes it appropriate for combustion.
LPG is 2.34 times cheaper than A98, so that is the main reason for using it. I am paying $6-7 per 100km which is quite good for Europe.

Several weeks ago after a good wash the last thing I wanted was to hit a wall while backing up. Well it happen and things snowballed from there.

The damage was much worse, but this is after some hammering.


Before I start shaving


After a few days of welding, putty, sanding and paint this is what I ended up with.
Gas tank cover gone


Shaved the emblem and third brake light.


Damage and LPG cover are gone



Washer and wiper blade gone too.


If you see some color difference, well the paint is 16y old, and I am going from gloss to matte white.


Blacked out my tails


Nice and glossy






There used to be a gas tank cover and 3 damaged places, used to smile.gif


Thinking about painting the middle/license panel black too for a long line of darkness.


Photo was taken with no flash, stop light test for visibility.


Blinkers too. You can see it pretty good considering how black they are.




I also rolled my fenders while I was at it. smile.gif
