I've managed to make quite a lot of progress today after all of my bits arrived. Today I managed to fit my roll over valve + breather end cap/filter, fit my vacuum take off for Megajolt, finish off my cooling system (minus a few hose clips), including P-clipping hoses in place and finally I have ran my throttle cable, I just need to attach it to the pedal which is tomorrows job.

Tomorrows job is to finish off the throttle cable, wire up my front indicators, wrap my exhaust, finish off my pedal box, sort out my brake actuator to get it to the right length, fit pedal stops (both forwards and rearwards).

Pictures speak more than words so here are some:

I didn't get much time in the garage this weekend due to family meals, nights out and sorting out things around the house. I managed to find a couple of hours today and mounted my fuel filler cap. I've had the cap for about 2 years now so it's nice to finally fit it!

I'm using some cheap flexible fuel filler hose from CBS which has kinked slightly at the fuel tank end. It should bet me through the IVA test and if I have any problems filling up then ill be replacing it with 2 aluminium 90 bends and fuel resistant joiners.

That's a neat looking way to mount the filler, I like that

I don't think you'll have any trouble filling it up, but (depending on how you've done it) you might find you get fuel peeing out of the breather if you brim it!

Skov that is a very good point, the breather uses a 1 way roll over valve which should prevent any fuel from spilling out when brimming, i'll need to see how it goes!

I had to move my filler to that position after having it on the back panel, as the 4 times I tried to fill the car up, I just got the petrol on the floor.

After advice on LB I ditched the 1 way valve and bought a 2 way (1 way free, the other vents at pressure) to cope with tank expansion in the sun. A few people have failed iva with the normal 1 way valve. Annoying as the vent is 35 ish from cbs.

I have missed quite a few updates on my car recently!

I've been very busy work on the car as of late, pretty much every day I am in the garage. My IVA test is now paid for (awaiting a date) but should be around the start of April if everything goes according to plan.

Since my last update I've done the following minus a few things I've probably forgotten:

Wrapped exhaust in fibreglass wrap
Finished cooling system
Fitted side repeaters to rear arch
Bought and fitted Acewell digital dash
Fitted speed sensor to propshaft
Finished brake system
Fitted gaiters to handbrake and exhaust
Trimmed seats in edge trim
Bought and fitted alternator
Fitted oil catch tank
Finished engine bay wiring
Made rear boot panel
Remade brake reservoir panel
Main steering column cover panel
Wired front indicators
Cover all cabling in spiral wrap

I will try and get some pictures up soon!

It sounds like you are getting close to the finish.

Are you able to test the speedo as I had a problem with my pickup on the prop. The prop was spinning too quickly. I ended up using a bolt on the rear driveshaft and the sensor in the upright, as its spins nearly 4 times slower. My dash is a race technology one though.
