                While working on my digidash I also found an hour to continue this project.
                Front panel, main lights and indicators on. Horn on and front bumper half on as I ran out of time

                  After nearly a year of just sitting there I finally had half a day this morning spare to re-start work on this car.
                  Bonnet replaced with one from the sheddy turbo, grill sorted, front bumper all bolted up, turbo elbow all on and bolted up and a quick rub over with an oily rag.
