Dave dude, shut your mouth and stop talking crap about letting people down Punish LMAO It's been a joy to watch from afar the saga unfold and as the others have said, you've done amazingly well to get this far this quickly! FITP is in May, there may well be some karting meets before then around and about, so we'll all poke and prod the Ultimate Ultima then. Extra Galaxy points coming your way to go with your southern comfort! Enjoy Scotland mate, you've certainly deserved it!

Right after a short time away from the Ultima it was back to work with it yesterday. As most of you know all there is left to do is the inside.

Well after putting most it back before the BB me and the misses have had a rethink and have now restripped the interior.

Why..... well all will be revealed over the next few days.

The carpet at the rear has been bugging us and despite trying to remove some of the stains we have been thinking about replacing the carpert and have had an idea for a while which we were not sure would work or not and after many hours of discussing it we decided to go ahead with the idea which we think is unique and in our opinion looks quite good.

This is the old dirty carpet,
[ IMAGE NOT SHOWN - GUESTS CANNOT VIEW ATTACHED IMAGES ]

Which after a quick clean soon dissappeared under (yes under !!) this our new floor...

[ IMAGE NOT SHOWN - GUESTS CANNOT VIEW ATTACHED IMAGES ]                     [ IMAGE NOT SHOWN - GUESTS CANNOT VIEW ATTACHED IMAGES ]
View from rear.                      View from front.

I did say it was unique.
We left the old carpet in place for insulation and sound proofing and  used 'no glue' toughloc laminate flooring from B & Q on top.

Fitting it was reasonable easy, all the trim panels had to come out first the hardest part was cutting out the holes for the seat mounting points and making sure the all lined up. The rear trim panels had to be trimmed by 8mm as the floor is slightly thicker.

Also today I have had to run the wiring through from the rear O/S cubby hole for this...

[ IMAGE NOT SHOWN - GUESTS CANNOT VIEW ATTACHED IMAGES ]                                     [ IMAGE NOT SHOWN - GUESTS CANNOT VIEW ATTACHED IMAGES ]
TV head unit + Freeview.                         Freeview.

I am going to be putting an in dash 7" TV monitor with DVD player (thanks James for the advice  Wink ) up front in the cubby hole under the head unit and a digital freeview tuner in the rear cubby hole.

I have run a wire from the front along the O/S sills into the cubby hole to power the freeview box when the TV monitor is turned on also running along the sill is a 5mt 3 plug phono to phono lead for the signals

The final fitting of the units will be tomorrow or Tuesday

I have also fitted this a sabre tooth aerial on the roof (following Steve's excellent 'how to') for the radio
[ IMAGE NOT SHOWN - GUESTS CANNOT VIEW ATTACHED IMAGES ]

And the final job today was fitting these...
[ IMAGE NOT SHOWN - GUESTS CANNOT VIEW ATTACHED IMAGES ]               [ IMAGE NOT SHOWN - GUESTS CANNOT VIEW ATTACHED IMAGES ]

Blue LED lights on the rear door step trims these work with the entry illumination lights so when you unlock the doors they turn on and off when locking.

Tomorrow will be refitting the dash.

You did that to an ULTIMA ?

The lights are quite posey Dave and do look kinda ok , but as far as the plywood floor goes.... I think Id rather have the stained carpet Wink

It certainly is a one off now , thats for sure  Big lol
