Ok, a bit of progress, bloody TIG welder at work broke down last week, hopefully sparky will fix it this week.

Started another rocker cover, this one will be fully polished but won't have all the holes, and plug lead holders

These holes and grooves will be TIG welded up (once it is fixed)
Image

And I don't like the cutout for the lead holder
Image

So a donor cover provided a solution
Image

Which gives me this, which will be welded up then ground smooth
Image

Should look mint with a fully smooth top.


Next job:

Got hold of some Fairmont door trims, with the wood spears, but with my planned interior the wood wouldn't suit, so time for some billet items out of 10mm Alloy sheet

Rough shaping
Image

All done
Image
Image
Image
Image

Image

I think it came up good, and with the black and white door trim, should look good
going to drill and tap a few threads on the back so they can bolt on from the back of the trim.

One down 3 to go, plus I will also do a dash spear the same, going to see if I can etch a Ford badge into them with the laser cutter at work.

Individual throttle bodies project is waiting on the TIG to be fixed, check http://www.fordmods.com/ford-4l-and-6-cylinder-f1/i6-individual-throttle-bodies-project-t87803.html to see updates of that project.

Mate, i love your work!! I like the look of this rocker cover, i too hate that cutout for the lead holder, ruins the smooth shape of the rocker cover lol..

Those door spears are genius man!! The shaping is done to perfection, top job. They look 10x more better than the woodgrain IMO and would look great against black door trims, polished alloy FTW. Keen to see how they look when fitted up in the interior

Keep up the awesome work!! :wink:

Cheers, yeah I can't wait for the TIG to be fixed so I can finish the rocker cover, it's been sitting on my desk since last Tuesday all ready to be welded.

Now that I have done the spear, I'm itching to do the interior NOW :D, might have to get the leather hides sooner than planned, so I can get it happening.

Time to get rid of all the surplus LPG wiring, talk about a spider web
Image

Also removed the cruise, as I never use it with the manual now, just more clutter out of the engine bay
Image

Now without having to unwrap the loom, does anyone know if the brake switch on the side of the master cylinder only feeds to cruise module? The wires from the switch go into the cruise loom, and appear to head towards the plug, but am wondering if they loop back for any other purpose as well? I want to remove the cruise loom and steering wheel switches as well.
