Just saw this thread and I'm like give this man a cigar!

Its like a behind the scenes at Crewe factory but 100% times better. God knows how you remember where everything goes and although I enjoy a bit of DIYing now and again a job like that would probably take me a lifetime.

Cant wait to see her up and running! Keep up the amazing work! Are you a mechanic of some kind?

Johnny Hotspur - you win the 2015 Braveheart award presented by the Bentley forum. I jump when I get the notification sound I'm running out of gas. Now this certainly deserves an award. We will award this to a deserving forum member annually. Happy new year folks. Lol

Thats crazy.
I just repaired a small front end damage. Hood, Fender, Grill, Front surround and insurance paid $75,000.00

This is quite a challenge. Hats off to you.

Update !!!

Hello All !!


Sorry for not posting in a while, but I have been busy with life....


I jumped back into it last weekend and yesterday, I did the headliner (twice), all the window regulators, added soft close latches to the doors, swapped every speaker in the system, added Bluetooth by swapping all leather around center armrest, replaced every nut that holds the front and rear panels together, I swapped all window and center console switches, I put the red leather door on the tan glove box, what a job that was, I had to brake it down in many pieces, installed the NAV and CD drives, I swapped all center console storage bins, ashtrays, etc. onto my wood grain trim, installed all panels, rear seats, and I went with the red carpet, after I put the black carpet in I just did not feel right.....


Enjoy the pics !

Hello All,

Thank you Steven,


But what do you think of the gold-ish brown seatbelt, I have all four in the gold-ish brown, so should I change the rears to match, or try to dye the gold-ish brown to red for the fronts, or dig deeper into how to replace the red belt into the other seatbelt mechanism, I basically had to destroy the flooded red belt holder to get it out, I think I will study the housing tonight.....

Well, am not a fan of the brown with the red seats. If it was black, or perhaps an off-setting blue, that would be ok. Visually, matching red or black would make more sense to my eyes than brown. JMHO

I agree Steven,

I am going to get the original red belts into the front seats,
I can have the seat rear cover off in minutes now that I know how, and the side cover by switch pops off to a point allowing access to the screw holding the cover on that covers the seatbelt mounting bolt on the side, at least I do not have to remove the seat from the vehicle to change the belt.
