I want to add cup holders but the E brake handle was in the way so out it went. I made a void in the sub enclosure by glassing over a 4" pvc and added an actuator.

I will be continuing the E30 theme into the door panels. I picked up some E30 window regulator motors and interior door grab handles/armrests. I took apart some new VW regulators and mated the E30 motors to them. The power windows are operating perfect.

I grafted the door handle mounting points to the door. I still have much more metal work to do to the doors.

Started on a trim panel/center console.

Keep up the good work! Also, I got the same cup holders. Those have LED's, right?
Thanks. Yep, LED's, blue, going with the blue to match the PDX amps. JL emblem will also be backlit through frosted plexi.

Nice, I got the red ones to match my color scheme. Backlit plexi is cool. I may try that

Slow at work today so instead of standing around I knocked this out. Modded a V1 hidden remote display and a Stinger volt gauge.

Really nice work! That center console looks sweet! Have you thought about doing hot and cold elements for the cup holders?
That's one thing I didn't think about. I'm always open to ideas.

I put some hours in on the router and this is what I came up with.











I started the metal work on the doors (still much more to do)

I installed six 10/24 rivnuts. The pods/speakers are attached with ss button head allens.

I've done some performance mods and cleaned up the engine bay. As of now the interior is still the same, driving it and enjoying the system. Too busy to work on it between  my 8-5 second job, and customer jobs right now.
