Updates as of 17-Feb

The interiors of the car have been cleaned up.

Was planning to use some sound deadening material like "Dampomat" on the flooring but couldn't source it locally.

Used asphalt sheets instead (available at most hardware stores). In time, we will know whether it was a correct decision.

The door sills & insides of the doors have been painted.

The locks & door latches are being cleaned up and would be fitted soon.

Latest pics given below.

The excitement is building up. Are you coating the floor with a rubber paint? That should help fight corrosion.

Well, the underbody was given a coating of rubberised paint last year. Am not sure whether it's really required here ...

In all probability, I will settle for the same shade of silver as the exterior.

if you are applying asphalt to the floorplan, might as well do it to the doors. - they'll close with a satisfying thud.

also have some thick felt to go on top, plus the wurth rubber paint for the underbody

The door panels are already lined with sound absorbent material. Besides, they have already been painted and any attempt to stick on asphalt sheets (via heating) would induce a great deal of rework.

I am planning to smear it with grease to serve as added rust protection.

Unfortunately, I do not have much of an option here ...
The RC book contains an endorsement to this effect and I don't want to fall foul of the authorities / run around unnecessarily to undo all of this.

A few more pics from yesterday -


A tragedy has occurred ... despite exercising the greatest of care, the wind shield has cracked during installation

In an attempt to clean up the wiring harness below the dashboard and mount two 4 inch speakers at the front of the car, project "dashboard removal" was undertaken last evening.

Shall share updates in due course ..

Tips for easy removal were supplied by fellow bhp-ian ilangop
