Re: Chris's 1994 Panda Colour Resto Mod

SOOO I thought I would update this to keep it alive,

Progress is slow and steady , one of the major things I've managed to sort is the bulkhead covers, I never liked the terrible matting/ sound deadening style one,

So first I made some Card templates that you can see in my last post,

Then make some Fibreboard ones,





Then I cut them out of some aluminium,gave them a paint and added some edging trim to avoid them scratching the paint,



All fitted







Much neater!

Also added a few guages for where the radio was never fitted,

These are tinted so when there off there pretty discreet,





Also sorted the rear beam, I did paint this about 4 years ago but made the mistake of using hammerite and it was pealing off, bearing in mind the cars not been on the road yet!



so it now looks like this



New springs , new shocks , new brake lines , cylinders.... literally everything's new...everything,


Also if you were wondering where the washer jets bottles gone from under the bonnet,




The battery also lives in the boot on the other side,


The cars not far from being done now , once the rears back together its just a case of fitting the driveshafts and brakelines then just a bit of paintwork to sort out before its let out of captivity,

Re: Chris's 1994 Panda Colour Resto Mod

few extra progress pictures of the bulkhead covers





Ive also replaced the tripod joints on the driveshafts as 6 years of them hangning around did'nt do them any good,

While I was there I colour coded the driveshafts, I'm sure the MOT tester will appreciate them lol

Did you get the beam off reasonably easy?
