And the back bit's welded to the chassis, so would stay behind when/if the body comes off.
There's a storage box that bolts to the cab back & sits on top of the tunnel, so it'd be good to get it upholstered now, before the box goes in.

I was going to drive the finished truck to an upholsterer for these to be done. I did think about temporarily spraying the Dynamat with textured black stonechip type paint, (the Halfords pick-up bed liner spray I've used around the switch panel), but I expect the upholsterer would refuse to try & glue vinyl to that. It'd also scuff off pretty quickly in the footwells either side of the front of the tunnel.
So I've bought some vinyl from eBay & will have a go at making paper templates, cutting it & gluing it myself. What could possibly go wrong?!
20 quid's worth of vinyl arrived today. The grain's a bit heavier than the rest in the cab, but I can live with that. It's about 1/2 a mill' thick.
Any recommendations for glue?

You can use sprayglue or contactglue, same stuff only different methods on how to apply it on. Apply it on both sides and let it dry for a moment before sticking it together. Another tip is to have a heatgun to soften the fabric a bit so it is easier to stretch over the tunnel. That's what I used to do when I worked with upholstery in boats.

Evo stick will do it. We used to put vinyl roofs on cars with it.

Diy shops, Hardware stores, Maybe Halfrauds, or ask a shoemaker where to buy it they use it all the time. Or try Evilbay.

Archie, is the paint on stuff, the high temperature type? 'cos if it is, it would save me driving all the way down to Boyrivens when I need it.

Just checking the the tin in front of me - lists as High temperature contact adhesive HTA1000

Itís made by wayside adhesives and has UN1133 on it under the danger heading - it does have Toluene in it which I know is a bit nasty.

a good adhesive if it contains toluene, used it in marine industry for years.
just make sure you use it outside andy due to very high fumes.

Toluene...............

Used to used in cans of octane-booster that could be bought in High Street motor accessory shops many moons ago, and was part of the exotic fuels used in some pre war race cars.

Not clever stuff for hooman beens re fumes as Poprodder says, may also be absorbed through the skins, so suitable gloves are recommended.  Wink
