I got the passenger rear indicator and stop/tail fitted yesterday. And Dug out 2 faulty flasher relays before finding a working one.

I also found a 2 good lengths of 9 conductor cable ( from a granada or scorpio ) with the matching multiplugs. So that will be perfect for the main wiring runs.

2 days without kids arround so may make a bit more progress...

Day 1 without kids turned into about 2.5hrs ...

30 mins was spent looking for a marker pen I put down somewhere, the other 2hrs was fitting the rear wing on the drivers side..

Then the Helpere came back , so after lunch we fitted the drievers rear lamps.




Note that after IVA the yellow indicators will be replaced with clear lenses.

So at 9:45AM Kids gone with Inlaws, Wife off to Gateshead Ikea.... So time to have a coffee

Then crack on with something...

This is how the rear presently looks, I ordered rear fog/reverse/reflectors/ number plate lamp today.



Then I decided to continue my dash that I cut out probably 18 months ago. I decided to fit my little rev counter behind the steering wheel to fill a gap. But it needed a refurb first so rubbed down the bezel and sprayed it up.



I then fitted my Acewell Digi Dash recessed into the panel.

I have ordered some switches as well today. These are needed along with some foam padding before I can proceeed.



And since the family had still not returned I went to B&Q on the hunt for something to hold my flexible conduit that will be my wiring lanes, 20mm plumbing pipe clips are absolutely perfect!! Mounted on a bit of salvaged galvanised C-Channel they look quite nice , the one in the photo is actually for the transmission tunnel but it gives the idea.

Did more tidying of the garage than working today.

Welded threaded rod to the T-nuts for the dashboard, ordered 50 6mm Flanged nuts to suit and then whilst tidying found 6 flanged nuts

Started on my 4th attempt at putting together the wing stays.

and sorted through my boxes of old wiring for suitable multiplugs for the loom build.

Looking good TT,
Like the colour scheme. It's a reassuring thing knowing being yellow you've got a good chance of being seen in most wing mirrors etc... (well I hope so anyway).
Are the front wings going to be black as well. I'm in two minds what colour mine are going to be yet.

Keep the photos coming.

Don't worry, I have not gone of task yet....

Rear reflectors have been fitted, and I have made up the plinths for the NAS fog and reverse lamps ( photo's to follow ).

The NAS lamps are 100MM in diameter, I spend ages on ebay looking for some container or tube I could cut down to make the plinths. Ages..

Then on B&Q's website I spotted 100mm ventilation ducting.

Went to B&Q and a ~50CM section was nearly 8... However they do a "telescopic" section which is ~40CM of 100MM with ~40cm of slightly larger. ( so almost the same length on the 100MM more material in total, more complex to sort for the supplier , so of course it's under 5 ( go figure.. )

Cut the plinths flush to the rear panel and have started to spray them up.

Also carried on with the dash and have cut out the switch panel ( it's a separate unit to the main panel in case it needs changing. It's been trimmed and the switchpack fitted... Now to move onto trimming the main dash pad.

Have had to remake my dash backing as I realised I want a OIL Pressure and water temperature Gauge and the acewell does not do that. And it was very fragile above the collumn.

So I have recut a new backing, reshaped it slightly and cut in 3 holes for 52mm Guages.

I was constructing a lower brace when our 8yr old also sugested using it to carry the wiring back to the scuttle.. What a Super Idea.. BIG credit to Toby on that one.
