I use that nice felt you can get from the Hiroboy site, It's perfect and way less messy than flock.

A little more progress. I am not using the original guages as they are destroyed with age so I've scrabbled amongst the spares box to find an approximate match. It's amazing what strategic dots of white paint here and there can do for the details.

Fabulous derailing Dave, what in the world are you using for front floor mats?

Excellent progress! The detailing is beautiful - those rear-window speaker grilles are fantastic. And to let you know, I'm cribbing, borrowing and outright stealing ideas for details from everyone else on this forum, lol.

I'm using fine felt and the grey bit is felt off an old jigsaw mat just cut to shape.

Thanks all.

Another update. I've scratch built the auxillary oil cooler and all the cooler lines. I've made the rear brake lines, horns, and a stone shield and weathered it all a bit.
