Some Body Details
Work began with a making a new floor.
The donor chassis is from a partially completed model. It will eventually be rebuilt.
The front seats tilt forward, and incorporate trays for the rear seats.
The doors have been deepened, the window winding mechanism completely rebuilt, and new interior panels made to match the prototype.
The rear seats are 3D printed, match the prototype and fit between the insides of the Pocher body.

The new firewall is also 3D printed, and more faithful to the RR design.
The bonnet sides have been reprofiled and their height increased. Here the fit with radiator, dashboard and fenders is being checked.
The sunroof has been added. Also, two louvers have been added to the body and three removed from the bonnet sides to match the original car.

The side walls of resin Ambassador fenders were slotted and reshaped to match the prototype.
The rear roof was raised 5mm and a new, 3D printed front roof added. It will have a sunroof.
The boot (trunk) and spare wheel covers (for Pocher wheels) are 3D printed.
The dashboard is basswood. This mockup verified the steering wheel fit and rake.
The footwell panel has working vent doors.
The floor still needs holes for the pedals.
Because much of the body and interior fittings were heavily modified or completely scratch built, it made sense to build and assemble all the pieces first before disassembly and painting. Final modifications could then be made on unpainted parts and damage to painted parts minimized.
