 Sid's Interiors did the carpeting, console and installed three position electric seat heaters (Off/100F/115F).


A good shot of the safety cage with side bars, front loop, seat supports and transmission support.
The central tunnel was constructed.  This also shows the seats used, they had to be smaller than the Spitfire because the side safety bars reduced cockpit width.
Floorboards are in, and the top of the central tunnel is fabricated.  There is lots left to do, the sheet metal needs to be covered with brown/beige liner, black carpets molded to the floor and tunnel, roll bar padding will be used extensively through the cockpit, gauges need to be added to the console, and I haven't yet figured out where the cup holder will be located.
  Seat covers and 5 point harnesses are installed.
  Matching Autometer Pro-Comp Ultra Light guages set off the burl veneer.
  Although not functional, I kept the heater and defrost switches to retain the original Spitfire look.

  It's not perfect, the redwood burl veneer was very wavy and thin, so several cracks developed during drying.  Next time, I'll find an easier veneer to work with.
