Yea its all away in a box for future use.
The wiring doesnt bother me at all i have it all connected back now to see if it still runs then hopefully take it all back out and crack on withe the chassis just have to get an engine crane to lift engine out.

Hi All and happy new year

I spent a good bit of time over christmas grinding and cleaning down about the chassis
To say it is a tedious job is an understatement but it is getting there slowly but surely

Nice to see you getting on
A couple of points there ain't a lot of rom between the steering extension ad the alternator
Re the scuttle I think I have the measurements but the best way is to stick the nose on mark rear edge on top rails add bonnet then scuttle that way you know it's right will have a look on laptop later and se if I still have that info

And to be honest i will be quiet worried if the engine hits the steering column with that gap
