Default Re: Effigy's history

Bought a cheapo HF jig saw tonight and got back to work on the door panels..

Made both pieces for the driver's side tonight, I'll use them as stencils for the passenger side..

Gonna wrap the backboard in the fabric I stitched a few weeks back, and the small foreground piece will be the red crushed velvet I wrapped the steering wheel in..

I ran out of thread-serts though and the screws i bought to attach the two pieces together are about 1/8" too long, rather than cut them all down to size, I'm just gonna buy the right size..

Gonna get all the hardware, then have to drill the holes for the pieces to attach em to the door, cut the holes for the latch and window crank, then figure out what i'm doing for the arm rest/door pull.. I never really use the armrest, so I'm thinking about just putting a door pull in instead.. not sure yet..
