Hi x_hodhoo,
You cannot leave that sample of your car dangling on MX67's thread. Create your own build thread and please let us have all the info on your car as it looks very interesting.

I've put some Dynamat sheets last night. I have to do some more tonight. It's interesting how body sounds if You try knocking on parts which have some Dynamat on the other side.

Thanks guys.

I was working on it for 10 months. Bought leather from factory in Austria that delivers OEM to Porsche. This is Cocoa Brown from Porsche 911 997 series, and Alcantara is also bought from the factory that makes roof liners for Mercedes C, E and S class. I've put some time into this, it was not easy to persuade someone to make exemption, because they do OEM.

The guy that does the stitching is best over here, but laizy and slow. Now we became friends, so I can say this without offensing him

I was with him every moment in "making of", so I've learned alot about all this and even made one black leather-red stitch steering wheel for my old Subaru.

Now we're moving on to roof liner made of same color of Alcantara material, same color as this.

I want this car to be Bentley-like inside. This is not pure German look, but I'm here because I'm closest to this style. hope You all agree

Don't worry about it being Bentley like because Bentley is now (unfortunately) a part of VW! Also the latest Bentleys have an engineering excellence that fits with Germanlook philosophies.

This is how it looks done, I've put Alcantara inserts inside leather trimmed cardboard and glued it. Sniffed some, but now I'm OK

It was sunny yesterday. And it seems today's gonna be sunny day too! Some work done on trying the new suspension/wheels setup





Left 944, right 1302/1303









Skinny tires on the front...









My favorite pic 8)


Front wheel is too deep inside, that's because there's no bearing mounted on the inside, only outside
