Brilliant work! The petrol tank looks amazing, and it's nice to see one painted in silver for the original look.

Andrew.

Thanks Andrew. Yeah looks better as it offsets the straps which I've had powder coated black.

Me too mate, still being held up by the headlining. Been told March now so fingers crossed I can get cracking from there. Can get the glass back in then and new screen fitted. I have been buying bits along the way to keep my eye in.

Well, I am still on with it despite losing the pics due to Photo*uckit. I have a new Alternator and Starter, coil is on its way. I have the bumpers in for powder coating, radiator for triple coring and all matt black Hoses. The engine is pretty much ready to see it go. Bodywork is done, just need the headlining fitted and glass back in, trim parts and door handles fitting aswell as all the metal plates parts fittings putting back on. The heat shield has been polished, gear box painted with powder coated cradle and new mount. I have a pair of new discs, all graphics have been remade and have a pair of blue ovals. Waiting for petrol tanks to arrive then only thing left is to sort out the interior.
