    Internal panels

    Hi
    Has anyone got any pics of the internal panels to which the carpets etc glue to? I am not looking for Viper specific plans, just a rough idea of what i am up against.
    I am looking at making a set of blanking panels up inside the car to cover over all the unsightly bits (such as under the dash, around the doors, door cards etc).
    Also am i best of using 9mm plywood or is hardboard sufficient?
    Cheers

    Hi Kev.

    4mm External Ply would be better than Hardboard which tends to warp if it gets damp. 9mm is a tad on the heavy side If you want something that will take a bend, Birch Ply is the Kiddie. :thumb: Or there's always ally.

    THINK I USED 6MM EXTERNAL PLY, GIVES A BIT MORE FOR THE STAPLE TO HOLD ON TO. 4MM WOULD PROBABLY DO IF YOU ANGLE THE STAPLES TO STOP THEM SHOWING THOUGH THE FRONT.:thumb:

    It's disappointing that you didn't get more replies, I would have thought that one of the Viper owners would have been able to post some photo's of the internal panels for you.

    If I'd have got that far with my build I would have gladly helped.

    Hi Howard
    I have got my brother on the case this week. I will post the pics of the way he has done it if you like.
    It may take a while mind you, but at least now with the help of the people on here and my brother, we have a 'game plan'.

    If you can suplly some pics that would be great, there's no point in re-inventing the wheel.

    Hi Howard
    Surely the idea of owning a viper means that the wheel hasn't been invented yet. Brother has got both door panels done now, 1 of the bits that goes in under the door and he is working on the 'parcel shelf'.
    We have gone for 6mm ply for most of the panels, except for hardboard which will be the 'parcel shelf' (laminated with fibreglass to give strength and shape).
    Pics in next day or 3.
    Ours is the corty based model, but should be more than similar.
    How far are you on with yours?
    Cheers

    My car is over in Market Rasen having the body and panels fitted (doors, boot etc), it's then going to be sprayed.

    The interior will need doing then, so any pics and advice you can offer will be appreciated.

    I'm in Flint in North Wales where are you located ?

    Cheers
