        A big shout to Murci Me!! The LED switches are a great idea.

        It came together pretty well, the last button I didn't work the sticker long enough or the button could of been sanded a bit more. But over all pretty satisfied, will permanently mount the buttons later.

        Now I just need the spindles and brakes!!

          Cut the cross member for the Arruat wide track suspension.

          Welded and Filled in the gap.

          Grind.


          Now just need to weld 1/8 inch plate to cover the area.

          Then off to powder coat.

              The six weeks that was told / sold on the Suspension system drop spindles and brakes has turn into almost 7 months (9 more days)

              Still missing the front spindles Richard is a nice enough guy to talk to but for Ducks sake get the it done!!

              So are we making bets that it will be 8 months when the spindles come in?

                While waiting on suspension I have been working on the interior. I purchased a set on door sill covers from IKR. fast speedy delivery and they will work nicely.

                picture of the inner door sill cover.

                oops, the story of my life a couple of inches short

                also not quite a good transition to the qtr window

                and area below the qtr window

                  I added a bolster or what ever it is called to the inner door sill cover, Thanks Auto pro!

                  Modification had to made to the car, grinding metal removes fiberglass goop...and spray in insulation.

                  Basically every where I looked there was some clean up to my car

                    for me fiberglass stops itching in about 9 hours..

                    fixed the gap from the inner door sill cover up by the qtr window, using fiberglass CSM, then dyna glass then rage gold.

                      then the length of the inner door sill cover was increased by 2-3 inches or so.

                        for the rear window area I wanted to try for a more OEM look rather than a carpeted wall.

                        So I bought some sheets of fiberglass modeling foam, and now I get an email from them everyday!

                        the foam is easy to cut, glue, sand and sand

                          In looking at some OEM pictures and going to look at a LP640 in person I didnt like what I was doing so I started over.

                          I also found that the opening for the rear window was way out of....lets just say they used a sawsall or something to make a cut so jagged!

                          so that had to be fixed.

                            long story short here is my rough in of the behind the seat area have a few modifications still to make. Then make the final parts. Then permanent attachment points.

                            I learned a lot doing this

                              I don't have a Lambo, but I'm enjoying your build thread. The photos are a help too... I'm a visual person, so being able to "see" is very helpful!
