Re: M70b interior

Dave, I was thinking of some way to attach from the bottom using square stock that would be drilled and tapped, that I would glue to the inside of the sides. But like you, I thought the grooves or slots might make it fail, so that is why the roof removal kit. The other thing about the roof removal kit is I can add interior lighting if I choose.

I am sure I will run into the same issues you did, with the sides bulging

I am very interested in your lug mounting method.

Rich, the only issue I had was getting the roof to sit correctly, so I glued it in place. The under frame has the grove which helps to keep it level, however the sides bulge, so I added lugs on the interior to attach the floor. 

So, I’m working at my interior from the bottom up.

Dave, Looking good. That is probably going to be at the end of my build. I managed to get a couple of the old school Walters roof removal hardware kits, so I can get it painted, do the interior, glazing and add window bars.

I am having BCW cast a couple of roofs that will fit my two. Soon as I hear back, I will place the order for them and various details.

Group, I’m also planning on making an interior for this car. So, I printed out a scale size drawing from Rob’s site, and I began to draw up where some of the interior parts should go.
