Well done Jonny

Bloody amazing what you have achieved with that old shed ( soz Mark )

Can I suggest you hold an open day where you provide coffee and bacon cobs so we can all come and have a nosey, in return we'll all dribble on your garage floor :wink:

Lol and that's not all of it :lol: I've kept all the original parts I'd need to put the car back to completely stock, which it's not far off to be honest. Well all but the AC, that was beyond saving.

Fabulous work there Jonny. You certainly deserve it given the work and attention to detail you've put in.

Thank you fella's. Even in this state I write a long list, crack on get the jobs done then end up with another long list.  I'm not sure how I've ended up with a non standard horn push when I took off a standard horn push so I have one of those on the way, crazy! The main beam flash is a little temperamental so a new stalk is on the way too. Keith gave a me radio blank and I'm having some blanks made for the speakers so no radio and I'm waiting to get an OE handbrake grip from being milled back as I want to see what it looks like on.  Lol there's always something in the search for perfection, don't even get me started on the harnesses :lol:

Superb. Now don't even consider driving it when it's finished.

It will ruin it :blink:

You can put it on display in my conservatory if you like John - I'll look after it for you.

As it stands I need to find an electrical gremlin but I've got a few little (some really quite tiny) things done....

Previous images shows the horn push as an outty, as it should be now an inny! Newly Allon White trimmed wheel is beautiful btw

Main beam flash required a big old tug so that got replaced for a new one.

Brand new oil cooler with XRP hose supplied by HPE and fittings replacing the second hand cooler with the blue hoses I'd previously fitted.

Very handy cut away I had done prior to paint with a neatly cut piece of plastic velcro'd over it.  I even kept the off cut in case someone, not me wants it back in :blink:

Where did you get the wheel arch liners from? Original or copies?

Well I'm not 100% sure although they had what I believe was a Lotus stock sicker with part number stuck on them. Either way so far so good, they look exactly the same as what came off Steve.
