  • Little on the car done today, seat adjustment wheel is damaged and a bit over engineered, if you can see it you can see the difference between the older and uprated simpler type of adjustment point

      • Completed and new probe waiting to go on, another off the shrinking list that's taking a while but no hurry.

                      • That is a strange one! On the plus side, no gearbox removal and shiny new cv joints to go with the other hiny new bits....

                        • Oh yes John and it finally moves under its own steam, happy days but with only a handbrake that was exciting. Also been sorting various things for the interior. Aerial only has one hole so that to drill and tap. Thought I'd lost my original but found it later and luckily it has two screws. Door card steady brackets have now all been put on, taken awhile to find the gromits etc. and will have to remove again but I need them on for now to line up the door cards

                            • Finding all screws, handles and sunvisors in a bag. And they're all there. NOS aerial waiting to go on. There are also 2 types of sunvisor clips. The straight push in and the up and over. I will be putting those in as the straight push in kept coming out and they redesigned it, also the rear arch trims will need cleaning

                              • And been experimenting with an old sunvisor to find out if I can change the fabric colour, its not finished and very rough as i didn't mask anything up, but I believe i can do this if needed as the headlining is a little lighter.
