Not a massive amount of progress the past week or two.
I realised I had a later front panel so I had to work out how to resolve the gap between the front subframe and front panel.
In the end I went for the solid mounts. These were very tight, but once in, they sorted an alignment issue I was having with the floor/bulkhead bolts lining up. Now there mm perfect.
Then I realised I had missed off the dust cover for the hydrolastic displacer unit and a bump stop on the upper arm. So the subframe came back out, the bits installed and subframe back in.
As my dad was over we decided to tackle the head liner. The headliner has seen better days and has stains, but I really didn't want a new one and didn't want to risk cleaning it. So it had a light brush down and was fitted as far as it could go. It has latched on, but there appears to be a gap. Is this correct? There is no way this can be flush as it would need to move forward/back at least 15mm. There is no way it can move any further. The sides need a little tweaking too.
And just a random pic as I put the bonnet on just to test fit (not aligned)
Now for the carb, do I send it off to get professionally restored or just give it a quick clean up? It also looks like it did have a brake servo fitted so think I will need to blank off one of the pipes.
