The engine cover access is so much easier without the hat shelve in place....

The "hat shelf" in the #107 was clad in leather, but on the #207, it had a alcantara like finish. Probably because every car had the folded soft top completely cover it.

However, because the #207 has not top at all, it bothered me that it wasn't part of the leather interior. This is now fixed

Looks awesome; love the engine covers especially.

Exhaust working properly again?

Tom fixed the old vacuum valve, I found one in San Diego, that seems to be Chinese, because it has no markings on it (but still works properly, and doesn't feel cheap) AND I got a used one from Spyker (the absolute last one), so I have three now

I finally got the EZcarlift under the Spyker. With the low ceilings, this variable height mid-rise lift seems to be just the bees knees for my amateur wrenching

I have the same issue... still not sure what to do given I have Pharaoh interior the black fabric maybe better than black leather, and Pharaoh would look wrong, maybe blue to match the exterior?. Decisions!

Also you'll lose a couple points at concours (although given how every Spyker is different not sure how they's score originality).

#107 had a ruby hat shelve. You should either leave it at black fabric or make it pharaoh leather. Only Stephan would know that he has to deduct a point
