    I went to SMS Auto Fabrics today to try and match the fabric that was in the car when I bought it. The place was amazing! Every car fabric you can think of, they have. They matched what I brought in pretty dam close. All in stock in their huge warehouse. What a score to find them!

    And that is just a fraction of what they have.

    How did the front kick panels attach? Been trying to figure that out with the roadster.

    Thanks,

    Hi Louis, the bottom angled area fits into a groove in the subrail angle, I attached the top with one tube rivet, and the two screws that hold the door strap hold the bottom. I'll put up a picture of the tube rivet I got at Ace hardware.

    Should be a sheetmetal channel welded to the subfloor extention…
    couple screws and dished upholstery washers screw into holes in the A pillar...
    kick panel sits into the channel and gets secured by the screws...
    my $0.02.... pix if needed.

    Ah, that makes sense. One of the problems with not starting with an original body is I don’t have a guide to where stuff goes.

    I too frequent snyders…
    there is a hand drawn pic of almost every part, with a part description or application following the pic...
    they have gotten a part, taken it to a different building to compare the bead on patch panels...
    they called me back to say I was right and they were not the same... bought them anyway...

    I like the light mounting idea. Also noticed you welded a gusset in on the shock mount, good idea as well.

  19. @Aaron D., thanks for the lead on SMS Auto Fabrics. They have a massive selection and I now have an embarrassingly large number of free samples on their way to me.

    Man first he magically makes a fire extinguisher appear and this time his dog grows like 70 pounds! Truely amazing work!

    ;)

    Interior looks great, got a photo of the clips you used on the door panel and maybe a source? Everything I find needs offset

    Ok guys, I took the first and second drive today. The car drove extremely well, it only needs a slight front brake adjustment and the steering wheel centered and she'll be good to go. I had a GoPro set up in the car for the first drive, but the mount I made was way to shaky and the video is pretty much unusable. Hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did.
