Thanks Chris.

But I don't really have the skills.
I just take the time of doing it.
And it takes a lot of time to get such a wooden model ready!

Today I'm happy to have it done to this alignment.
But unfortunately the transfer lever doesn't has enough space to shift into low position!

So this design has to be changed another time.

It's just a way cool-o-mat job for the older of us. Needs pation and the look for making things from flat material.

The coating with leather is another part to be remembered.

It will take some more hours to get me satisfied with these parts for sure.
But I never surrender.

The wooden model is ready.

Time to think about a layout for the aluminum sheets.

Joined the junk yard today.
Got 3kg of aluminum sheets for 3€.

So the first cover is ready.
Big surprise when I pulled off the protecting film: one side is coulered white!

I'm running the car since last year without reversing light.
This has to changed right now.
And a correct blocking the starter issue has to be installed.

The round connector of the ZF box works fine!

Just connect the both mostly green lines to the existing plug and the reverse lamp gets illuminated if in "R"!





The remaining both black lines should be connected to the starter relais's cut off 85 or 86 to interrupt the possibility while in "R", "D", "1", "2" or "3".





To get some light inside the roller deck just add a switched line to it.



No progress in the leather maintenance.
I'm sorry about that.

Did you put foam under the leather?

Thinking of doing some panels like this on my series when I get there. Putting 1/4-1-2" foam down should give it a smooth tight finish.
