    This week's progress

    Well as some of you may or may not know i have bought some Recaro Speed seats which are the same as Clokey's i believe.

    I'm still awaiting the subframes from Demon Thiefs so i thought in the meantime i'll get cracking and remove my seats. But then i thought why stop there, so i went to see a trimmer and discussed having a new carpet made, which then led me onto stripping out the dash too. So, one pair of seats has turned into a complete retrim from scratch









    Let the dynamt-ing comence!!

    Getting the actual dash out only took about 5 minutes, it was the carpet that was a real *******!

    I removed everything from the dash apart from the sprung steering shroud that covers the tilt and rake adjust ment. The dash was loose and it moved, but could i get the swine out???

    Me and my mate had another look and it was definately ready to come out, so we gave it an almighty pull, and the shround flew off and smashed my clean in the face and nearly broke my nose. Needless to say was rolling around in fits of laughter for a while
