      I've managed to put some time into this between other projects. I've got the headlining out to reupholster, at the same time I'm changing all the interior trim to black. I've painted all my existing trim which seems to have worked well, but time will tell how well it stands up to use. This is the first batch, I'm in the process of doing all the interior lights.

      The make up mirror is broken and the sunvisors in general are difficult to know what to do with, I might try painting the driver's one and see how it turns out, my other thought is to have them upholstered in the headlinging fabric, I think finding a pair of RS2 ones is out of the question.

      I've started to refurbish the rear brakes, the strip down took hours as someone had previously tried to remove the stainless plates by using a chisel on the bolts, I had to drill out 3 of them in the end. I'm in the process of bead blasting them, but it's very slow with only a 14cfm compressor. Until I've removed all the pistons I'm not quite sure what will be required.

      The corrosion isn't too severe, but still needs some attention.

      I got a pair of cast front arms that will be blasted and powder coated along with the front and rear hub carriers, I just need to get the bearings out of those.

      I've also replaced the backing foam on my passenger door card, it was a horrible job to remove all the old foam, I then used a 3mm scrim foam on the back of the original material and then stuck that on the door panel. The driver's door is going the same way, but I'll leave it until the foam starts coming out!

        Grab handles and reading lights done,

        I've also done the interior light, although I might buy a genuine one as they're only £20 or so, the sunroof switch is a more difficult one as they're £50 new and only ever fitted to the D11 V8 with black headlining, if I paint it the illumination won't work and that will annoy me!

        Otherwise it's just the sunvisors to deal with now.

            Time to deal with the headlining!

            It took many hours just to get to that stage, it wasn't a bad job really, it's just how much has to be removed, especially with the sunroof. I would really have struggled without the workshop manual.

            Most the foam came off with a wire brush

            The rest I steamed off until I had this

            I don't have any pictures of the progress, but eventually I had this

            It's not perfect, and I have to admit I really struggle with upholstery. The biggest issue I had was that the material doesn't have much stretch so it's very hard not to get creases, especially around the sunvisor recess.

            No A-pillar trims unfortunately, mine broke when I removed them, and I've had no luck in finding any.

              The headlining is in, wasn't too bad to now I know how the sunroof goes together, this is the best picture I could manage.

              I'm trying to sort out the steering wheel at the moment, I have this;

              However, the horn push listed in the album is wrong, I've now sourced the correct part from Nardi, but it wasn't cheap!
