when you look back at those pics it is amazing how far it has come.
bet you won't miss the feeling of never being able to see the finish line though i had that for a while but a nice coat of paint spurs you on
Well it is good to have it painted but now its mostly finicky jobs which don't appear to make much difference. Tonight I got the thick starter motor lead from the 164 loom and got it threaded through the Sprint bulkhead and onto the battery. Then to the back in the tunnel, and up over the gearbox, round almost onto the starter. I also fixed a couple of major earth straps. - not a lot to actually show for three hours work.......
Oh and a bird has taken up residence in the garage and is c......g on my new paint
Feeling a bit more optimistic about the wires as (Thanks to YoungAlf ) I now have the engine wiring diagram and I've found the 164 handbook with more plumbing and wiring details. I've also got the correct diameter heater rubber tubing - so I just need to do some spaghetti work!
Still more jobs done - Fitted one of the heater pipes and nearly sorted the other one. Then I decided to do the covering for the rear bulkhead........ and one thing led to another
Appearances Are deceptive - there are still Loads of jobs to do and finish ....
Did you keep the rear side windows made from glass ? or did you make others to fit there ?
Yes I'm using the original glass side windows but the are now fixed (by gluing with PU Mastic) to the outside of the frames. I have now found a place (MDA in Bedford) that does rubber sheet, so I've just got two strips to seal along the bottom edge.
Yes the car will be at Vesuvios on the 12th!!!! Hopefully with working electrics and running
And yes I did have to try the seat out but went Brrrup Brrrrup
Thank you all for the comments re the appearance -its getting there
