      • Bit done before rain stopped play, I have 2 display units and both have different display lighting bulb. No idea why and they're not interchangeable. I've had to research new bulbs for the display I was to use

          • Dash now in, also have found both sides NOS stalks in my spares so put those on. All working with exception of the horn so that to look at, HRW switch, fog lamp switch and NOS coin tray unit in, heater slider switches unit in, Montego blank, cig lighter and speaker switch in. Then it rained so I put the car away. Before that I tried to attach the bonnet spring and catch but my NOS catch is different so I've had to dig out an old one and im cleaning and spraying primer after lunch. Should be able to attach to the car tomorrow with luck and carry on putting the dash together, glovebox next and column surround. I'm also after a set of dish alloys as a back up so if any one has a set lying around, in any condition please

            • As this is my last project and once the car has been finished, I have decided rightly or wrongly to move on and sell this car and all the spares I have left. Updates will still happen but all will be sold

                    • After all that work, you'd certainly miss it if you did sell (well I would anyway) and no-one can accuse you of being an addict if you just keep the one Certainly a nice one to be the one too

                      • I now finally have a set of 5 dish alloys to be refurbed. Taken awhile mind and once I've finished my consul , work on this will resume

                          • Work finally restarts, Wheels taken off to powder coating, garage being slowly cleared and parts sorted to put on as I just threw them in the car etc. And there's a good possibility of a surprise coming soon. Details to follow

                            • As left in January, I'm choosing dish alloys as my metric tyres are too old I don't trust them

                              • Wheels are done and I'm happy with the result , im also having a set of metrics done for show. Tyres next and progress is very slow but wheels are ticked off the list
