13/4/13: Fitted the first of the carpets today plus the starter fixing catches.


Instruments back

I received the instruments back from John Marks Tuesday. Wow they look like new, were beautifully packed and I can't wait to get them together with my new dash. Sorry no unwrapped photo, I was too impatient to get them open. Here they are without their transit wrapping.

Box of goodies :-)



Just look at the difference!

Oh yes the clock will now work.

First trial fit.


Spring 2013

Brrr, still too cold to do much but my WIP projects are:

  • Instruments out and being refurbished.
  • Dash part way through tidy up
  • Seats and carpet out
  • New carpet ready to go in.
