First job of the day was to check the brakes to see if there had been any further leaks over night, there wasn't! I opted to re-bleed the brakes for (hopefully) the last time.
Job 112 - Knee Trim Panels
I knew the Knee Trim Panels required rubber covering for the IVA, so I decided to fit this prior to fitting to the car and speaking to Derek they advised the use of Superglue to fix in place.
|Superglue applied and waiting for it to dry a bit
|Re-drilling the holes in the correct location!
Now that the Knee Protectors were ready to be fixed we could fix the side panels and Sill Protectors in place. With everything in place I drilled the holes in the rubber trim and positioned rivets in the holes starting from the front and working towards the back. It was then out with the Air Riveter again and the job was soon completed. :-)
|Air Riveter made life so much easier - Highly recommended if you have an Aldi Compressor! :-)
|We did 3 rivets at a time holding the rubber trim in the correct location
An easy job, just a case of pulling the Handbrake up and sliding the Tunnel Cover over and attaching the Gear Knob.

Now that the interior was in it was time to move on to fitting the seats! Or so we thought!
We started by gathering the items needed for fitting the seats, the drivers is adjustable and the passenger is fixed!
The first issue was that the packs listed in the manual don't match those supplied and hence the description of the bolts to use is all to cock. We started by fitting the shorter bolts between the seat and rails and then changed them for the longer bolts on the basis of how far they would stick through the car! We used loctite to secure them as there were only 4 spring washers to cover both sides of the car?!
It was then a case of deciding which way to fit the seat rails to the fixed seat!
|Left Hand - Wrong Right Hand - Correct
|Passenger Seat with the fixed rail
|Drivers Seat with the adjustable rail
We positioned the seats in the car so they didn't get knocked and left it there for the day.
