Excellent seeing progress , :-) , just make sure there ` off road ` there seems to be loads of clamped vehicles , G12,G13,G14 ,  not sure if there`s a purge on by the DVLA ,  ( rat bags , lots of people have wee projects but cannot afford big garages or storage , can see the point if its blocking access ,etc .

Progress has been slow on the old boy.

Rebuilt the wiper assembly with New Old stock wiper spindles and wiper arms.

So brought him out the garage into the rain to test them.

Not long till Bugjam, so I need to get the old boy back on the road.

Needs near side heater channel bottom plate, near side floorpan, and new brakes all round.

Had a new pan with surface rust sitting in the garage, and ordered a cheap bottom plate for heater channel, plus all new brakes.

Next year I'll hopefully pull him apart again and fit good quality floorpans and heater channels - but these will do for now.
