Spent today relocating the handbrake...........worked well until I seen the floor bend.

I needed to remove the shifter anyway as I have refurbished one.

Image

Image

This included a new gear insulator and a second hand shifter as they wear on the pivot joint causing the "up & Down" movement.

I have made 5mm plates to locate under the floor pan to help with the flex issue:

Image

Image

Just finished final fitment, all is good............handbrake works well now.

During the construction of building a console out of MDF I figured it will look the same as the one I took out.......... so I test fitted the console only to find it fits!

It requires some small modification, but a damn site better than making a whole new one. Here are some pics.

I have now added a recess in order for the handbrake to clear.

How often do you actually drive Bitza? Console looks awesome. I love that power windows were bragging rights in 1982

Update..........here is the console painted and with Starion switches.........I have also added luminous tape to the switches in order to see them in the dark.

I'm not happy with the colour.......it looks more brown to me (as seen on the bin lid)............I'll get the colour mixed soon.

If you wish Jamie........It started out as off topic, but has now grown into a detailed build.

Now that the console is finished I need to move the old power window switches from the arm rests.

Image

They look so ugly..........don't know why I did it!!

Anyway, I now have replaced the blue vinyl on the door trim.

Image

Here is a test fit of the door trim with the handle.........looks alot cleaner now.

Image

Image

Just need to finish the wiring for the windows and finalise the passenger side.
