I cut a new panel from thin hardboard from Home Depot, matching the old Mini panel.

I used spray adhesive to glue thin batting to the face of the panel. Then I used the same spray adhesive to glue the upholstery material to the batting.

More spray adhesive to glue the folded edges to the backside.

The finished panel is now the same as the original except in black and without the wrinkles.

The installed panel is flat and boring but it will do for now. I'd still like to add the trim from the Nissan and the Nissan door handle but that is for another time.

I have work to do on the Locost before spring gets here. I know it is snowy and cold right now but it won't be long before driving weather gets here.

Putting a picture here so I can find it later. I took this from a post by botbasher.

This is a better looking Talbot-Lago than I posted back on page 1 and is just the look I'm going for. As soon as I finish the locost front suspension mod I'll get back to work on my body buck.

Hi Run87k - having dutifully gone through this great build-log, and followed your stunning work, it is very sad to see it just stop...
Such a shame... but I hope you are well
