I reckon give up on Photobucket and go to Imgur instead. Photobucket don't deserve your custom given recent events and Imgur is easier to use anyway.

Think your right
It’s well and truly busted now and to be honest I’m sick of all the hassle

Anyway its all character building
Hope this works

Heres the carpet fully installed took an age what with trimming and glueing but Im happy with it

0_C1_CF365-_F2_EA-4743-9_DB2-72_B502_FB1

784_C4_FDA-_BCED-4715-_A0_C5-_C74_C59794

Got a new park switch for my wiper motor which was the first new part I got for this car over 5 years ago how time flies when your having fun 😉

I also fitted the heater you can just see it in this pic

BBF32800-1_C91-4_C70-9566-2_C3_E6_B5_E4_

Ive also fitted a new wiper stalk and built up the steering colum shroud

9293_ADFF-148_A-4_B94-9_F2_A-_EEADFCFF48

Nice! Is that bracket with the 4 studs inside the iar intake the original shape? Mine had rusted away to nothing so am getting a new one made (They are not available anymore)

Hi and cheers

Yes it is I got the plastic air box off a guy on here as I’ve deleted the face vents so this is an early air box
mine had rusted away too and yes you can’t buy the metal bracket (as far as I’m aware)
this one wasn’t in bad nick so I gave it a lick of paint to keep the rust at bay
I think you can still buy the air box but it’s over £40 pretty sure Huddersfield do them

Turned my attention to the dash
Trial fit

B1810_E4_A-4515-466_B-_BA1_D-9_BA38_BDAD

Not bad for a first fit
Had to do a bit of fettling to fit the clocks to this bit

Popped on the wipers

5_F8_FC97_F-495_C-43_D3-9_F26-731_DB4126

Steering wheel is being changed for a new one still in two minds to go for a similar one or perhaps wood rim or even go back to standard

Thats as far as I can go with the interior so turned my attention to the engine
Dug it out from the back of the garage

DB616_FFA-_F349-49_AE-83_A4-58_CEC7_C3_C

Got to degreasing the bits Id missed first time around

FD78_DD92-_EF47-452_D-_B57_C-_B5_E85346_

FEC10260-_EB5_B-4575-96_DA-0814_D9_F0307

You can see Ive removed the clutch came off nice and easy ( thankfully 😅 )
Wasnt in bad nick but I have a new one to fit

D72_D20_E8-_D932-48_E4-9_B61-_ECDD999711

Had yet another delivery from Minispares so refurbed the ( wok as its commonly called ) replaced the rusty worn out bits as required
