Most of the interior is now complete. I have recovered one of the rear quarter panels (still got the other one to do) - the vinyl was from the badly home-made rear cockpit panels, at least that home-made interior was good for something
Note the original rubber seal that is often missing on repro panels. I even riveted on the little stud for the hood cover. I'm proud of those little details
The cardboard boot panel that covers the petrol tank has been cleaned up and sprayed in "vinyl and rubber paint".
The glove boxes have had the original vinyl on the support bars stuck back down and fixed to my Stoneleigh bargain gloveboxes
To give you (another) example of the muppet who "restored" this car, this is his handiwork on the brand new rear quarter panels (compared here to an original).
The lower sections had been nastily hacked away. Why? Well, on the B-pillar, there should be a 1" vinyl strip fitted, then this panel. These panels had been fitted right up to the door seal, so these sections were hacked off to get them to fit. It looks stupid, as now the panel didn't follow the correct curvature of the inner wheelarch
To be honest, if they had been fitted properly, I would have kept them, speakers and all. Now they've been replaced, there's no way I can take a knife to them! Not sure where the speakers are going to go yet. Originally Triumph dealers fitted one in the passenger glovebox compartment, but that seems a rubbish idea.
