Seeing as it was getting to dark to have a look at the kick panels I decided to make a start on the arm rest.
Firstly I needed to attach the beading.

I also fitted a clip so that the rnr bed door would stay shut. Just a little job but it had been bugging me since I fitted it !

Whilst at garage I got a bulb for the rear light.

Also made a bit more progress with the kick board CAD drawing.

Collected table leg from CNC cutters but it still needs staining and varnishing.
Propped the table up to see how it looks and check level.
Fitted arm rest.

Got a few more jobs done today before I headed up to Vic Farm.

The cargo door cabinet is now finished. Everything is still OG with the exception of the door and 3screws that hold the latch.

Although the cigarette lighter was never on the list - I don't smoke - I thought I'd have a quick look to see if I could get power to it so I can use it to charge my phone. Success !

The kick boards are coming along nicely.
The right hand side one you see in the pic is MK4 and although not completely perfect, its pretty close, worthy of a photo anyway.

I've also made the table leg,stained and varnished it. I'll fit it tomorrow at Stanford hall.

OK the pic time.

Its been a while since I've been able to find time to get the last few jobs done on Laura but she hasn't been far from my mind.

Recently I've been collecting a few bits to build a new engine and whilst I've been at it I saw an engine at Rocket Ron's with lovely new powder coated tinware and I thought would it be nice if Laura had some nice clean and fresh tinware, and then I started thinking about cleaning and painting the engine bay.

But maybe that job is a bit big for the moment, but maybe when the engine and gearbox are out I might change my mind.

I've also noticed that a piece of the braided fuel line must have perished, so while the gearbox is out and gets the seal sorted I'm going to replace the fuel lines with proper quality ones and also fit an inline fuel cut off solenoid, so they are jobs I'm adding to the list.

I did fit the table leg yesterday.

Updated list.

Hi Jason.
Best go for hard fuel lines where possible. Fuel solenoid cut out and electric fuel pump can be placed neatly OUTSIDE the engine bay. I've got mine fixed to the chassis at the rear where it goes over the torsion tube....

Yes, that's pretty much where I was thinking.

I really looking forward to the next few weeks. I'm hoping to get the gearbox seal and fuel sender and lines sorted.

Can you tell me if the stuff you used on Rusty, fertan(I think) , is that like "Krust", the stuff that stops rust - turns it black and hard.

Thanks

Jason

Fertan is pretty good stuff imho.

Would be interested in where rusty1962 procured the fuel cut off solenoid and detail of the item.

Thanks, Sean.
