Got my cooling system plumbed in and run up with no leaks, so thats great. Need a temp sensor though.
Ran her up for 5 minutes, no problems and no leaks.

I've ordered a steering rack from rally designs, and even though I'm flat broke, I'm going to go all out and get a prop shaft made in July.

With a days work I should be able to drive it out of the garage. (no brakes mind!) Pushing it with no steering sucks big time.

So heres to hopefully driving it in July, with brakes in August .

It will then be the big save for bodywork and megajolt. Unfortunately its not going to be on the road this year, but next spring. Time flies so I'm happy to take it steady, its frustating but heh hoa

Planning so make some progress on the build.
I've ordered

Brake lines from Exact through Vouch, they look the dogs so can't wait for them to arrive.
Brake resevoir and couplings/fixings so I can finish my brake circuits. Will just need to rebuild the rear drum setup and brakes will be done

I'm going to service the engine with some new valve stem seals and cambelt.
Sort the throttle cable out.

And with a bit of luck order some bodywork!

Can't wait for bank holiday week!

I've got the nose fitted properly with a couple of rivnuts now, hopefully make the cuts to the scuttle tonight so it lines up properly.
The scuttle has the front face fille in so no need for a seperate firewall panel if that makes sense, I'll just need to put a base in for the battery to sit on etc

I haven't done an update since spamgate.
So here we have it.
Seats are now in, they are nice westfield leather ones really comfy and don't restrick my thighs!

My side panels are nearlly fitted, need to solve my issue with the throttle linkage on my pedal box then I can finally fix them in place.

Next jobs: throttle linkage mod, engine bulk head panel, then start to sort out proper engine bay electrics. here's hoping for a drive in the summer!!

Hoping for a bit of time on the old girl over easter (and the car
Lots of little jobs, throttle cable/pedal box is the one I want to get sorted, then I can fit the engine bay bulkhead plate, think I might make it two peice to get access to the pedal box from above. Finish off brakes, this involves working out all the springs for the rear drums argg. then I might start tidying the wiring up in the engine bay and few bits of bodywork tweaking, not major just lots of little bits that need doing.

i'm hitting a lull with the build thinking theirs still lots to do and no time and money to do it. So hoping to push through that!
