headlining is coming along just fine, it's really solid butt still has some flex to allow fitting. Still need to make a little bridge in the front.

Next up is trimming, some bodyfiller, sanding and upholstery.

I replaced the subframe bolts while upgrading to a G60 ARB in the front. Corners nice now, still need to lower it.

the new antenna:


meanwhile i spraypainted the lowering springs black and applied colored dots so they look OEM. Why? lowering you're car is a big hassle in belgium, better to pretend to have OEM springs. :facepalm:

tomorrow i'll continue to work on the headlining. I'm hoping to get it done this weekend or next week. I want to start on the sebring wheels I bought for this next week.

So to summerise:
-roof is getting painted
-changing wheels to sebrings
-lowering by 4cm
-change the steeringjoints
-allignment
-bleed the brakes
-fit the headlining, finish up the interior.
-fit new bumpers
-get the motor sorted out

------->have fun.

Needless to say i'm not selling it at the moment.
