Great to see a freshly painted bodyshell - doesn't take too long to re-build from here.

So its slowly coming along. I haven't spent as much time as I had hoped on it since getting the bodyshell back. Rolling around on a concrete floor in an unheated garage isn't much fun at this time of year!

 

This morning I've been working on the battery cable and the brake line.

I wish I could get nice straight brake pipes like everyone else seems to be able to get, but I couldn't really manage it. 

 

Also, I know that the correct way is for the brake pipe to go behind the rear subframe, however as its all now in place, and as I have read that its ok for it to go under the subframe instead (providing its all secure), I thought I would take the easier option.

that union is in the wrong place... It should be much higher up on the subframe. Your handbrake cables will probably foul the brake pipes? That bracket is for the brake cable, you can just see it in my pic:

Thank you, that picture is very useful. I can see where the union is supposed to go now.

 

I will make sure the pipes clear the handbrake cable when I come to fit it
