Okay, I been working on the interior top roof panel.. Been building the working sun visors, plus working on the interior doom light plus the two rear interior lights that will sit behind the seats. For these lights i used off road light housings that I got at my local hobby shop out in town. They seem to turn out nice for the part. The doom light lense is a tail light lense for a truck I think. i had to do some triming down on it as well.

The interior roof panel

397404_2991856279716_1361401210_33233294_1211649383_n.jpg

At this point, I knew I made a mistake an used the wrong kind of glue.. oops. So I waited too the elmers glue had set up an dried an I then took an removed the headliner back out much easier an with no mess either from glue.

The led light here is only hold into place, it's not even attach to anything yet, it's not in the correct spot either.

Here is one of two from hub units, I took an held the rein hub unit to the tire on the inside an used a small drill bit (two of them, one small one for marking, 2nd one the size of the lug base) to mark the locations of each stud. Then I drilled out the hub unit just alittle to set the lugs just a hair down inside then I place a layer of masking of the outer face of the rim an open the holes up by using the excto blade. I then place well brush on some vasoline then I took an placed the lugs into the rim on the out side looking in. I then used epoxy on the resin hub only on the outer side just where the lugs would be in. I then place the hub onto the outer face of the rim over the lugs an left set for almost a day. I took an drilled out the lug holes in the rim after I had removed the hub with the lugs in so the rim would be easier mounting off an on.
