Now we are waiting for the repaired body to come back, so anything outstanding on the rolling chassis has now been attended to.

The carburettor has been drilled and tapped for the 123 ignition unit’s vacuum sensor, I’ve got a fitting for the oil temperature gauge to install and a pressure pick-up under the oil filter. These are to feed to additional instruments which are going to be installed The new dash panel is starting to come together, with the shape cut out and switch / instrument positions drawn on. Before proceeding too much further, this needs to be trial fitted into the body.
