Yes that's true Seriph, but to be honest.. I love them in white, it matches the car and the seats..!

Well, here's the second shock and spring made up  ;D

Time to swap the passenger side now..

Although this is only temporary, until I finally invest in some BC's :o. (Very soon)

Another massive thanks to Mark for his time on Saturday night.... wow a late one.

But we got back to my house quite late Saturday night and decided to swap the passenger side shocker.

So under flood lights on the drive we decided to undertake this little job.

Well I must say, from start to finish, and rebuilding all the front Frunk & wheel arch lining too, it was just over an hour..

So really happy, and owe mark a massive favour for helping out ;D

Just need to test drive it now

So.......

Been looking at this for months and months....

Mark very kindly spent hours upon hours creating a mould for the centre consol for
My car, and this weekend we decided to have a go and try and pull consol out of it..!

Well I think it’s come out pretty good, if I do say so myself.

Granted, we had to smash the mould to get it out, but well worth it.

We used some really good fibreglass stuff from a mate and the release wax was brilliant, but because of the angles, it was a pig to release from the mould, so easier to smash the mould instead.

Still a fair amount of work on it to get it 100% and to sit in the car correctly, but it’s come out a lot better than both mark and myself ever thought it would do.

Cheers mark 👍🏻

Ok, I promised more pictures once a bit more work on the console was done, so here we are...

So the sections were cut out for the various items, like ash tray, switches and windows switches.

I’ve got the ‘Original’ Ferrari ashtray and the mirrors / hazard switches, so fitting these.

Once these had been cut out, we noticed the finish on the console isn’t prefect, so it’s been rubbed down (by hand) and filled with fibreglass filler and P38.

Still a long way to go, before I can look at getting it painted, but it’s coming on.

Again, another long day with Mark in Milton Keynes, but thanks for all the help mark 👍🏻

It’s got to be the same anthracite as stripes and the rest of the bits in the car Wayne, as it will look Like the grey scripe continues down through the centre of the car then...!

Thinking of having the bottom the console (may be 3 inches up from the bottom) flocked, after painting to match the carpet  :o

But a lot of decisions yet, and I still need to make sure it fits between my seats, as it’s a little wider than the original
MR2 console  :o
