The grey 1957 Jensen 541R has had lots of small details added whilst in the trim shop such as the new carpets being measured out, glued in, the edge bound and fitted into place. A hole for the gear lever has been made as well as a gaiter to fit around the gear stick. The gaiter has then been sewn onto the main tunnel section.

Others fittings include the sills that have be bound and fitted, the rear matt has been made, and the boot has been marked out, bound and fitted.

Sound deadening has been applied to behind the pedals underneath the carpet.

The seat belt holes have been made and accounted for with the new carpet as well.

The final step on laying the carpets is to attach fasteners and studs to the flood panels and material to allow the carpet to stay fixed down.
