the outlet at the bottom of the rad is to small and pointing at the alternator, need it coming out and upwards... hoping to get my rad man to come and look at it while its on the car.. not to difficult to do but he will have the right bits etc.. regards ricky

I have not got very far with this, however I have done a few little bits.. and more recently I have made a start on the wings and inner wings which will (hopefully) be in one piece again, very soon, have chosen to rebuild the inner wings rather than make new ones, the main reason being I feel better to have as much of the original car as possible, upgrades being the exception off course, I may have to modify them further down the road but for now as std as possible.. the a pillar has been repaired, the n/s wing has been repaired around the headlamp mount, and the a pillar attachment.. the inner wing was almost beyond, but needed a new base where it mounts on the chassis and a new edge where the two wings join and a new end piece, just needs the main wing joint sorting out to join them together.. regards ricky

bit more done it now has steering, the column is mounted and joined to the rack, quite easy in the end just extended the rod between the u.j's with a 3mm thick tube welded and cotter pinned for extra security.. the dash will need a bit more strengthening just in case, it is only screwed into wood so will make some support brackets for it.. regards ricky
