Quote from: Fefelarue on August 8, 2022, 18:52Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!I started the interior improvements today. Firstly with this CNC-machined solid stainless steel doorknob (I used to be a doorknob designer), which I drilled out to make a really nice weighted gear knob, along with some gaiter adjustments:Then a set of red carpets, which are admittedly not great quality. Maybe one day I'll use them as a template to make my own. But they look good in photos as least:Currently awaiting delivery of a stainless exhaust manifold and a steering wheel...
QuoteThat's novel! If you want to get rid of the exposed gearstick a cable tie or rubber band under the collar of the black cover will allow you to push it up against the underside of the knob.
Quote from: Fefelarue on August 9, 2022, 00:59I actually want more of it exposed. I did what I could with the tools I had at work, but i'll be changing it again when I have a bit more time to play

Quote from: puma2 on August 10, 2022, 07:07 I like your detail and personal touches on your 2 even better when hand made by yourself what other plans have you got for your 2 work wise can you what sort of things you have done
Quote from: Fefelarue on August 10, 2022, 10:37Not at all! I like bare metal, most people don't as much Thanks - I can't weld yet but i'm fairly handy other than that!Thank you! My main plans are to basically make the car interior look and feel like it was made by the Italians Work-wise, I have a website here: www.felixure.com and my instagram is @felix_ure if you're interested in the sort of stuff I normally do and make.
Quote from: Ardent on September 20, 2022, 20:57Damn it.I have been on the look out for a suitable 325mm wooden steering wheel.But that looks the mutts nuts.Out of interest which boss did you go for?I've already bought a HKB.
Quote from: Topdownman on September 20, 2022, 21:43That does look very nice and looks good in your car.Have you thought about changing your door handles? With your skills I expect you could come up with something very nice!
Quote from: Gaz mr-s on September 21, 2022, 10:11Others have found under 350mm inhibits view of the top of the clocks. Will depend on seat position though?
Quote from: Fefelarue on September 21, 2022, 14:42I'm very tall so it was already inhibited. The smaller wheel actually allows me to see the top over the it. It's not perfect but it's not really any worse than with the standard wheel.
