Interior after restoration: Page (3)


The Car before work began
The Car after work was done

2nd January 2013

Finally finished off the interior today fitting the interior window surrounds, grab handles etc. etc. and cleaning and feeding the leather.

All that's left is the glovebox, which I have left out until I check on the indicators as it's easier to get to the switch with it removed.

The car is off to have the wheels changed in the morning so hopefully will be able to get some images once it's all completed.

3rd January 2013

The car is now complete apart from 1 front mudflap (that requires a new bracket welding in position 1st) and some tidying up of the cracked steering wheel centre boss.

Whilst it can be seen from the images above that the interior is nothing like a 'French' Traction (which are pretty basic) it does suit the car and the aim was to give it a suitable 'Art Deco' look and feel without spoiling it's character which we have hopefully achieved.

The tyres and tubes from the old wheels were swapped over with no problems, though they have yet to be balanced as the wheel shape is a bit unusual.
