Still progressing by removing more parts.
I fitted all the interior upholstery panels ages ago, but wasn't really happy with them -there's a gap around d each one which means you can see the soundproofing behind them. Not a major problem -I could just paint it black, as I believe some old guy once said, but I'm also filling & painting various sections of the cab,which would be a lot easier without upholstery in the way.
So this morning I pulled all the panels out & took them over to Trimmania in Wokingham who recently recovered my motorcycle seat for me. They've got some soft piping left over from another job which they'll glue around the edge of my panels to fill the gap. They're also lining the inside of the storage box & glove box.

Trimmania do a lot of restoration work & had this rather nice taxi cab in for a new hood.

After driving back from Wokingham & doing another couple of errands, I checked the fit of the recessed panel Mr Hornet made & my brother further modified, which sits under the brake servo. A couple of the bolt holes in the top of the gearbox tunnel need slotting, so after driving over to Newbury in Berkshire to drop the panel off at the powder coaters, I filed the holes out until I ran out of light from my work lamp. So nothing to show again, but sort of progress.
You can see the Goodrich hoses for the remote servo bleed nipples here.

Yeah, they're a plug-in, rechargable light, but seems like they only have a certain life span. I've had them about a year, but use them every day.
