Still waiting for the return of the instruments but in the meantime we have a new ignition switch and a very temporary ammeter until I can locate a correct item.

Under the bonnet, just about everything is completed; air cleaner will be off for a while until final tuning of the SUs is completed. Gauge in the lower right is just there for testing purposes and will disappear later.

I spent a few hours today cutting the rubber trim for the sidescreens and fitting the glass into the frames. Still to do - the weather seals on the side curtains and of course the upholstery for the flaps on the front screens.
Also, the rear shockers arrived today from their overhaul and were being fitted as this shot was taken.

Unfortunately there was a slight miscalculation of the amount of rubber trim needed, so one sidescreen is yet to be finished.

Instruments have returned from repair and are in place. Mechanisms have been overhauled, but new faces are still coming from somewhere. Awaiting a couple of indicator lights and new starter knob and cable, which will hopefully arrive next week.

The handbrake lever has been fitted and cables adjusted; carpeting is now in place. It doesn't show in the picture, but the right hand side carpet is just a few mm too big, so will have to be removed, trimmed and re-edged.

The steering wheel is put in place for a quick photo opportunity. It isn't fitted yet to protect it from accidental damage.
