Splash guard made as the original ones have rotted and fell off, i only have one new one so its used as a template to make a pair out of sheet aluminium

Still got the other side to make

It’s all being waxoyled underneath so it won’t be shiny silver

Headlining repaired

the rear screen rubber has shrunk so much with age it has let the top of the headlining fall out, the rubber won’t hold it up anymore so its had to be glued

How did you repair those holes in the headlining? Mine is in need of repair and I have no idea how to go about it.

the holes where repaired by finding some material of similar colour and pushing it through the hole then gluing it on the back of the headlining hole, once the hole was covered the loose flaps where glued back down. The damage is still obvious but its a lot better than having a big hole in the headlining

That boot floor looks very good. How much was the Land Rover section? Why the different size tyres?

Thanks...... the land rover floor is about £50-60 new but the one i got was second hand cut out of a scrap car so i got it at a bargain price of £7.50

No reason for different tyre sizes other than they where cheap bought off eBay in pairs, they are visually both the same size which was a surprise, i also bought a Dunlop 600 for the spare and its massive compared to the camac 600's
