Well the sun is here, but we still havent finished this. Too many projects, too little time and all that.

Just bought the exterior door handles, some bearings and bits and bobs to help progress the car.

Be winter by the time its finished now lol ;) unless we step up the game...

Then you'd better step up the game, because this looks like one seriously cool little car!

tyre ordered - one of the tyres had sidewall damage, must have been from storage, so new tyre on order. Will fit and balence at work once it arrives.

Headlight bowls ordered so we can start fitting up the front end and connecting up the wiring loom.

Headlight bowls arrived. Been pricing up the components needed to prep it for mot such as new wheel cylinders, discs, pads etc.

Had a shift around so we have more space to finish the paint on the doors, bonnet boot lid.

One of the tyres was flat, found to be a leaky valve and some tiny tiny air bubbles from the rim. So tyre off, shot blast interior of rim, coat of paint to seal and a new valve fitted. tyre refitted, so far so good.

Hope to get round to doing some work on this when the weather picks up. Only needs bits and bobs to finish really, but saving for a nice interior to finish it.
