While half of the team are busting butt on the ambulance remount, my team are cutting and fitting Ruby’s interior….. here is a telling pic…. You can see the repaired and retextured front headliner cap…. in place and all headliner panels fitted as well …. a big step OK, what you’re looking at is the repaired and textured front cap in place….. the headliner panels cut and fitted together…. areas not covered will have bulkhead cabinets (frig, galley, closet & bathroom). This is how a GM floorplan headliner is formed…a Transmode headliner was installed “complete” then bulkheads were installed meaning there was carpet and headliner over the bulkheads….. they would not come out! Being a GM floorplan prototype, we will assemble the interior as it was originally except we won’t be building from the dash to the open rear panel. We really do not want to take off that rear panel…. Why? Glad you asked….. this body being designed like an aircraft fuselage…being twisted and shaken for 40 years, that rear cap may have pressures holding it in place… removing it may disturb a very large sleeping giant!!!! Lets not do that.
Ruby’s dash has progress…. the MacDaddy dash panel has been stretched and the repaired and textured side panels are fitted With luck today I tackle the padded passenger pad side of the dash So my next frustration will be to make the dash the first finished section of Ruby
Like I said, the guys are out there working the ambulance remount… found yesterday the unit is presold so it looks like another one will be in the works…….. Oh Boy!!!!!
Thanks for the visit, if you see anything here that might interest a friend tell his about the Daily Pose…. there is actually a current thread about a guy wondering how to do a headliner……. if you see that one boy he should watch what we’re doing here……
See ya tomorrow……..
GREAT STUFF AS USUAL!! THANKS FOR THE OVERALL LARGER FRAMEWORK PICS.
YOU SAID THAT THE FRONT CAP WOULD BE EASILY REMOVABLE IF NEEDED. IS IT?
