    My concoction took the shine off, but still left a uniform silvery grey look. I maybe have to experiment some more. :)

    Maybe just get them beadblasted very lightly, it would take a few seconds to just give a sort of well-worn look.

    Starting to get to the final leg, wiring is getting there, brakes are plumbed, battery mounted......

    ..my steampunk/classic car/Selected Grub influenced dashboard. :D Still got some more stuff to do on it.

    Tomorrow may be the day I connect the battery to the electrics..... and hope I don’t release the magic harness smoke.

    I haven't inspired or influenced anyone in a very long time.
    A humble thanks.

    I think you're mistaken there me old Kiwi sausage!
    Your work inspires me in that one day when the house is finished I might have a go at making something.

    For fixing your floor down, I have a load of aluminium csk washers that I used to sell for go-kart floor plates. They are made for use with M6 csk machine screws/bolts. Either plain ally, not anodised, or anodised gold. I have a couple of hundred of each. Let me know if you are interested and how many you may need (ps, they are cheap!)

    Thanks for the offer, but I plan to use stainless slotted ‘raised countersunk’ screws when the floor goes down for good. I tried it with countersunk washers and it looked a bit odd, so the slotted screws will sink neatly, hopefully blend in.

    Same with the firewall, I tried it with the washers, didn’t look right, so just the countersunk screwS there now.
