Christoph asked me to post his pictures of his Furflex. Here they are:




The colour showed by the first picture is not correct due to the flash light. The second picture shows the same piece of Furflex during day-light and is much more accurate.

The original leather cover above the windscreen:

It's dead but original



The new one has an aluminium kernel

Finished and installed




Installing the door catch strap. Looks easy but took a lot of time to find the right position for the screws. You only have one shot ...












The old acryl glass cover of the rear number plate must be replaced

Currently, AC Ace AE220 is offered for sale (https://www.carandclassic.com/l/C1687811). It has a nice solution for the handbrake lever cover. It is made in alumnium:

I would like to have something similar in my Aceca.





The slot should be closed by a brush.



Now, all sides covering with carpet.




Installed, it looks a little bit like a turret on a war ship.

Nearly all wood parts around the windows are broken and must be replaced.

The wood on the dashboard near by the windscreen had a rotten place. I tries to repair this part but I wasn't able to find the right wood stain to fit the old colour.









I had the idea to enforce the wood at the place where the rear side window hinge is screwed by an inlined piece of aluminium.










The new wood parts look good but have a different colour compared to the old pieces.

I will repaint them. Some parts are installed.



In the meantime my saddler covered the transmission tunnel.


I glued some insulation mat at the inside ...


... and installed it.





Together with the seats.

The glove compartments in the doors got their leather barrier.




If you ever wanted to know how to make leather piping. First you have to cut out some long strip of leather

then you have to find a simple man to sharpen out the leather by hand

(well, you can also use a machine to do this but that's only half of the fun)
At least you have to glue all together

At the end I used my first piping to surround the glove box cover plate

Now, the other wood parts are finished. The construction is identical for all parts. An aluminium plate covered with walnut veneer. Grinding the wood with 280 and then covering it with seven layers of one component wood clear coat. Grinding that with 400, 600 and 1000 wet sand paper. Finally it was covered with two layers of a two component car clear coat.
