The design modification.  In the original post on the parcel shelf I said the back of the insert would be leaf rubber and the front tee shaped.  These were determined by the traditional method of holding bits in place.  With the new panel in place you can see this won’t work.  As the new panel is 2mm thick it means that the front needs to be the leaf shape to allow for the miss match in height which tee won’t.  The back will now be tee shape.

That’s it for a couple of days as life and car shows get in the way.

Just a pic of the level change I’m on about.

Not all problems can be solved with gaffer tape.  For those there is WD40.
Not even gaffer tape can fix stupid, but it can mask the sound.

If you can’t buy it or steal it you have to make it.

Great weekend.  First show with Burton Car Club.  A small show in Market Bosworth on the Battle Field Railway line.  Free entry, free Train ride and free tea and coffee throughout the day.  Good food at sensible prices.  Makes a change for paying for everything and food at silly prices.

The Furrari is now the car of the week on the club website.

I had the parcel shelf panel in place.  Not quite long enough so I’ve added some fingers at the at the rear to give a better fit.  Just some bits of ABS bonded on with ABS slurry, should finish this mod tomorrow.  Also learned that you can’t drive with the new panel in place with the roll bar up, it gets dragged out.

Talking of learning something new, I learned you can’t stroke the cat with abs slurry on your hands.

Finished adding the fingers that hold the new parcel shelf in place.  Very solid in place with no movement but still easy to drop in place and remove.  Next job is making the “fins” that form the shape of the back of the new 'shelf where it meets the boot lid.  No pics of these yet but I hope to finish them before Ragley this weekend.  As each one is a slightly different shape it’s time consuming, thank goodness I bought myself a bench sander.

Talking of bench sanders and learning something new every day.  Don’t put your glasses on the belt of your bench sander and then switch it on.  They went the full length of the garage and ended up half way down the drive under the car.  What a silly thing to do.
