Made some good investments ... this isn't one of them.

Lol... well not financially, but think of the joy and fun the process has been and then driving that beast around. You only live once. Someday you will take your last breath and some nurse will shut your mouth for the last time and its done.

Sunroof delete completed with Fenn Lane panel and Upol filler as recommended by Chris. Body shop couldn't believe how solid Upol was when dried. They had not used that product before.
I got lucky with a rust free car from California. Had two spots on the lower windshield under the gasket in the usual spots.
Exciting project. I also love the look of the raw bodywork. Has anyone ever seen this look preserved with perhaps just clear over it like this ?


I believe his is an aluminum body, but it just looks so elemental. Is it possible even?

It will be the last to go in (obviously) although it has been pre-wired with high quality wire already.

* Alpine Bluetooth and cell.
* JL amp in front trunk mounted on circular and removable board inside of spare wheel/tire for light weight track time.
* Focal front speakers with cross over
* Focal 6 x 9 rears in custom rear valance ... rear valance will be easy removal (it's easy to remove already) so lightweight sliver knit carpet can be installed via Velcro loops for track configuration.
* Two 8 inch JL subs mounted in boxes in the rear foot well. Boxes will have quick release mechanisms for track duty config. They will be covered in the same lightwieght German sliver knit carpet.

I was at Classic9 ( actually several times) recently, and can absolutley say that pictures do not do this color justice. It’s even better in the flesh! Just beautiful.

...I have heard the same about Scarlett Johansson.

Update ...

As I write this I'm having my own complete rebuild and the right amount of Alcantara is a tough call ... here's a description of what I'm having done.

* Headliner - 1 piece of Alcantara, including A & B pillars.
* Dash - vinyl with double contrast silver stitching around instruments.
* Top door trim - Alcantara with double contrast stitching.
* Door panels - leather with no stitching although may add some if it seems too plain.
* Lower rear inner panels - leather.
* Top of rear parcel shelf where speakers are - Alcantara.
* Lower portion of rear parcel shelf - leather with no stitching unless too plain.
* Center console trim - Alcantara

Rear interior trim and seats will be removable and RS style sliver knit carpet will reside under the rear quarters and lightweight carpet will be inserted over parcel shelf for lightweight look or in place of lightweight carpet for maximum weight reduction.
Custom cerakoted Heigo roll bar will pair with contrast silver stitched leather / Alcantara insert re-upholstered Pole Positions.

Goal with my build is to reconfigure between a 4 seater and lightweight 2 seater in an afternoon of work if so desired. To that end, I'm having a set of Recaro CS seats and rear seats matched at the same time to the Pole Position re-upholster job.

Love this build... You'll be happy with Rod's leather skills - I had the interior of my 951 leathered up there.

Couple of comments on your design:
Why would you use vinyl on the dash? Don't worry about the potential for sun damage (if that is your concern) - there are some excellent protectants available & treated annually you won't have an issue.
I think the transition between alcantara on the door tops to vinyl/leather on the dash will look odd.
Alcantara on the center console will likely scuff / wear easily - I would recommend leather there with the shift boot and handbrake tray in alcantara.

Alternatively you could just go with alcantara for everything dash and above (headliner) and leather from the door tops down.

Thanks ... I really appreciate the feedback. I will talk to Rod about it ... I have to say that I not a fan of Alcantara dashes. I also don't like too much Alcantara on the doors so I'm not sure that I will veer too much from the course other than leather on the dash instead of vinyl although I will consider it.

Wow, you’re paying attention to every detail! I can’t wait to see the fully assembled product, it already looks epic just sitting there partially built.

Your Alcantara coverage is spot on, basically use it sparingly to enhance smaller pieces of trip and the headliner. I agree that vinyl (or leather) would look far better on the dash with some stitching to enhance the lines.

Looking forward to seeing more pics and progress.
