I feel your pain. You wait 3-4 months for those guys and it's all over in 30 mins leaving you gagging for more!
:D :D :D

Haha, I know what you guys mean. There's some epic threads out there and you get to the end and are just like "cmon, hurry up!!!"
Maybe build-threads.com should do a compilation of all the epic-but-stalled build threads.

My build won't make it on though, cause it aint stalled just yet...
There are updates since last time, I just need to compile and post the photos.
So, patience chaps :)

Great milestone! well done.

Seems to be idling pretty high, maybe a vacuum leak or TPS error?

Yeah, it's definitely not running 100% right yet. Still chasing a million little things to get it right. And I suspect both of those things are contributing, still very happy with having it running though:)

Hello Ausmini. Happy 2019 :)

I’m still working away on the Morris, it drives and the last direction I got from the engineer was ‘just get it roadworthy’.

So in the interests of kicking off this year with some solid progress towards that goal, I decided getting the interior to a habitable and roadworthy was an easy place to start. First up, some nice trims for the C pillars. Note that the whole interior was sold when I purchased the car so I have to make everything from scratch.


To fill these holes.
Image

I cut these up out of some plywood. Gave them a few coats of polyurethane varnish I had just to tidy them up a bit.
Image

The trick with these is to allow room for the trim clips to slide in. Don’t glue your foam straight to the backboard, thankfully I learnt this lesson a while back on a previous project.
Image

Some thin card.
Image

Taped over the holes should do.
Image

Like so.
Image

Allowing the clips to slide in without grabbing the foam.
Image

So then I cut some pieces of vinyl.
Image

Image

Then found some foam for backing.
Image

Glued to the boards with spray adhesive and trimmed to the edges.
Image

Leaving an inch or so all the way around.
Image

For gluing with some contact adhesive. After finding both the tins in the shed had gone solid, a trip to Bunnings yielded some Sika branded stuff that was quite forgiving to use and actually allowed for a bit of repositioning which was handy.
Image

I found it was necessary to look at both sides to try to get the radius of the edge even as too much tension flattened it out and made it look funny.
Image

Overall they came out pretty nice for an afternoons work.
Image

I painted inside the C pillar with some body deadener. Not sure it did much but it all helps I guess.
Image

Soaked a bunch of the trim clips overnight in vinegar, it helps a lot.
Image

Trial fitted, should do the job nicely.
Image

Next up, Door trims. These are the cards, just 3mm MDF with he same varnish to seal them a little. Will be a basic design with straight lines I think, not going to get too fancy.
