Been difficult finding time to do anything lately. Managed to get a few parts from himley show last week and got a few bits done this weekend.
A picture showing door fit, was best I could get after spending a lot of time on it before paint.

I trimmed all the remaining bits of carpet and trimmed around steering column to finalise fit, pretty pleased with the carpet just needs a hell of a vacuuming to get the felt bits off the top pile.

Then I stripped, cleaned out and painted the tanks, hell of a job to do, took a couple of weekends to clean out properly. Used bilthamber kit and it worked ok, as for stripping the outside I tried some rustins paint stripper but it wasn’t having any of it. So I purchased some starchem synstip which although more dangerous to use actually did the job that was intended, so then cleaned them up, etch primed and a couple of coats of black, got all the tank straps in position so once fully dry I can install the tanks, hopefully get bootlid on shortly then.

Looking really good, it won't be too much longer until it is back on the road.

After a few hours of trimming and compressing I managed to get the drivers side rear quarter window fitted as best as I can, hopefully the seals will compress a bit more in time and improve the fit.just the other side to do now.

Have managed to get the tanks installed and fit the boot board, bootlid etc. And add the badges to bootlid, was lucky to get some nos badges only old part left is the bonnet badge surround, but the original is acceptable to use, I tried a repro one but it didn’t fit the plastic insert properly.

I then tested most the electrics as I had connected a battery to set the wiper motor.
Only issue I have is the headlamp flash not working although the dip and main beam selector switch works fine, so will have to take a look at the switch I think,

How did you fit the chrome door surrounds - it's a job I need to do but have been putting off?
