Restoration of individual items quietly progresses in the background, resulting in some amazing transformations. One such example is the front interior panel which curves under the windscreen on the kerb side. The first photograph shows this panel after removal, but with the lamp inspection hatch already restored in the seating fabric which will adorn the interior side panels; the rest of the panel is in a diabolical state. The aluminium section is the kick-plate which goes at floor level.
The same panel after restoration. The rest of the lining material will be fitted after the panel has been fixed into place. A close up of the chrome plated ash tray is below.
