Interesting and good looking, but will it come out?

Bill - It will come out, although it obviously wont be a quick process. the side panels from the frame brace forward (Not shown) will be an easier removal if basic access is needed. The back half that will include the console storage will be a permanent install.

Default More Progress and Pics

More Pictures

Getting close to finished (Structure wise anyway) on the Dash/Console...A lock and lid finishes the console cubby, a bit of finesse with a hammer will smooth out some small waves near the cut edges and some of the bends, then I'm just waiting for the gauges, switches, panels, faceplate and such for final dimensions before cutting the holes in the dash.

Getting there...

What seat is that in the console pic, and is it low enough that the soft top clears it ?

Like the dash/console.

That is a bucket seat out of an early model Miata. It does clear the Hardtop very well but....as I do not have a Soft top, and my seat mounts are not stock, I really could only guess. If I'm not mistaken, quite a few other Sunbeams have run these seats...I'm guessing someone on the forum probably knows.

PS there are some really nice Recovers offered for them as well

Default Update

Thought I'd post a few more albums of my progress. Not quite as much as before but I've been slammed getting ready for my oldest son's wedding next month. Always appreciate hearing from you guys...the good, bad, and the ugly.

That last PIC in the first link looks odd for a Steering Box

Seems to me you are missing a few ingredients
