I need to get a new sticker for the paint code, does anyone know where they can be bought from?
My other option is to take to the printers, they've done stuff like this for me before so maybe they could do this.

It's going to be stunning when it's finished. It's a gorgeous colour.

This is fantastic work, and I agree with Frank - it's going to be beautiful when finished.

Been sorting out a few bits ready to start the rebuild soon, a lot of parts ready for fitting but as ever the details need doing.
One thing I'd been meaning to do for a while was to make some fuel tank straps as mine had rotted away.
Some strips of 1.6mm steel cut to length, washers welded for reinforcement of the ends and it should be fit for purpose.
I've since cleaned and painted it so it can go back on the car soon.
Engine has been reunited with the gearbox now the new rear crank seal has gone in, new clutch too for good measure.
One day I'll stop buying new parts!

Those straps are a bit vulnerable. I keep mine well covered in waxoyle.

Yes, agree they are out in the elements a bit.
Given them a 2nd coat of hammerite tonight for good measure.
I also have some thin neoprene which I will glue to the side that faces the tank to stop the paint being rubbed off.

The fuel tank straps got painted then strips of neoprene glued to the tank side, this all went back on with cleaned filler pipe etc.
Back axle that I'd previously repaired and painted was next, new shocks etc, original springs which I have had blasted and powder coated rather than buying new as the new stuff just doesn't seem to be of such good quality and break readily, these are probably the original so should be good for a while yet.

Rear hatch got flatted and polished back up ready for the glass to be bonded in, happy with the choice of black.

Engine bay all built back up with refurbished parts as necessary, anything awkward to get at was replaced like steering rack gators which allowed me to regrease the internals of the rack. New track rod ends for good measure.

Drive train back in now.
Couldn't resist tidying a few bits up like dull and rusty engine mount brackets. Engine itself lets the side down now!
I've built up the front struts now ready to be fitted next time.

It's all looking so gorgeous that it's almost a shame not to spruce the engine up as it goes back together. Before you refit the dashboard it will be worth checking it carefully for the beginnings of any cracks where it bolts to the firewall and on the narrow bits between the various air vents and instrument clusters.

Cheers guys, it is coming together nicely, mainly due to being able to spend time on it.
Agree the engine does kind of let the side down a bit, did think about taking the cam cover off and polishing it but didn't' want to go too overboard, just nice and tidy. Still might clean it up some more..
Good idea re the dashboard, I'll have a look at it before it goes in and see if any reinforcing can be done if needed  Cool
