Projekt Avon SR 5,4

Hi there,
i bought a SR 5,4 in january from Italy. It has been the Sports type before with the dashboard. The transom was lowered to fit a short shaft.
Inside , it was a 2 seater with a console like all ribs in the area.
I cut out the transom an build a new , more strong an for LS again.
Now i am in the search for the almost right inside.

Last week i bought 2 sheets of plywood, in wbp quality , lauan , 10mm.
In my garage i started to build a console like the MOD for Halmatic.
I miiled it to measure, bonded it together with epoxyd and rounded the edges to a radius
of 10mm. To finish, it will be covered with glasfibre and 2 lays of polyester inside and outside. The colour will be grey topcoat.

My question to you is, how high is the orig. seating an how wide. I have it 30cm wide, an the console itself is 50cm high plus 15cm seat cushion. It will be a 3 seater.

Today i start with a A-bar made from PU foam with Epoxy .
Give you more pics later and keep you informed. If anyone has also a plan for SR5,4 ,
i am open for ideas.

Greetings from Germany
Mike

A-bar GRP on PU foam

Hi there, This is my first try . I cut out stripes from polyurethane foam , 30mm thick and bonded together with polyurethane glue. It will be sanded and lightly rounded the edges.
Finaly it will have 3 plies of GRP and a finish of a topcoat.

Are you going to cut some trunking/ducting into the foam for cables before you GRP?

Hi Jim,
i am planing to make the installation in a seperate tube. It would be a cleaner view with a covered trunking, but for this style of a rib ,it will be ok.

Hi again.
Now i am sanding the hull of my SR to give a new colour. I want grey, like the MOD.
Inside , the console is in final work. I bonded all together with epoxyd .

Next wekk, the console wil be covered inside and outside with GRP and then painted in grey.

Pics will follow.
