The front seats have been reupholstered by Geoff Chrysler.

Very nice: natural grain dyed through light grey "Hyde" brand leather, with heating elements (I'll need a better alternator than it came with to power that!). Parts of the headliner (also redone by Geoff) are visible in the foreground.

His next task is redoing the rear bench, which has a fold-down armrest. I may get the parts in the photo this coming Monday.

I whipped the Kugelfischer injection pump and head off today.* I'll bring the pump with me to Britain next week for calibration and new seals, and the head seems good with no fine cracks between valve seats, although I have a new one to use.* The liners have a nearly undetectable lip at the top so could be reused, but won't be, because I have new ones.

My Kugelfischer KF2 injection pumps - the one from the car is second from left.


The stainless steel trims from front and rear windscreens as well as the back of the roof buttresses.

I dropped the injection pump that's second from left on the photo above in person at Nottingham Diesel Services with Steve on Wednesday, and he tells me that he has four NOS pistons for this pump should they be needed in the rebuild. Will pick the repaired pump up in about 10 days, assuming all's done and it's flow-benched with good results.
