Interior panels (Bugeye)

Postby KenR » Thu Mar 18, 2010 11:26 am

Does anyone have pics for the mounting of the interior panels? My project arrived in boxes and I did not get to enjoy the dis-assembly... I assume I use some screws with chrome trim rings...but there are not very many holes visible from previous/original screws. I'd also like to see how the panels were intended to fit around the wiring harness on the passenger side. I have a new harness and I am reluctant to split it open to fan out the wires for a lower profile...but that would probably look the cleanest. Any suggestions?
thanks,
-Ken

The panels were screwed on with #6 sheetmetal screws and #6 trim washers.
I have found self drilling truss head screws work great but they are not original just no washers to buy, and they are self drilling.
The rocker panel covers the harness as it is, do not split it. And it will bulge out that panel but it's next to the seat and you will never see it once the seat is in.
Do watch that you do NOT screw through the wires (don't ask) ;(
I think the rocker panels use 4 screws each, the outer foot kicks use 4,
I just put enough in to hold them.
