Fit the new manifold and twin carbs, then get the booster rebuilt and fitted. Get the bits to fit the mkII taillights and the reverse light. Then sort out the wiring and make brackets for a set of LR8s. (These would be the primary goals.)

 

On the interior, clean and fit some original carpets, the radio and speaker, the heater and the GTS clocks. 

 

If it isn't going to be too expensive, it would be nice to rebuild the GTS gearbox, get it fitted and repaint the front subframe and engine bay while the engine is out. (Probably won't get to this in the year).

Fit the new chrome handles, rear lights, radio/mp3 player I received for Xmas.

 

Plan in another trip to Ben to replace the drivers door and then give the interior a tidy up and try and cure some of the rattles.

Actually start it!

 

The new garage is with the architect at the moment so fingers crossed I'll have the shell in my new garage this year and can then start work on it.

 

...If I can get some time away from the house renovations!

Rebuild one then do the advisories for last year's MOTs (playing both rear wheel bearings, slight play all r balljoints) basically just a grease and tighten will do 😁

With you on this. It is now shiny and new after being off the road for years. The problem is, after the state it got into as a daily driver I don’t really want to get it wet! and it’s definitely going nowhere near a gritted road!
