New front shocks now built up with original refurbished springs, new bump stops and components cleaned and painted.

I have been puzzled over the correct orientation for the offset top mounts to keep the camber etc correct.
The workshop manual didn't give me any clues, the gtie was no clearer either as they looked different either side.
The obvious though was overlooked, the bolt pattern is not symmetrical so they will only bolt back to the car in one position!
A few more bits and pieces got cleaned and painted, front towing eye for one thing which was pretty rusted being sat out front of the car.
The rubber gear lever gaitor that sits under the car had a split in it so some neoprene strips got glued inside and out to reinforce it.
All stuff to be refitted next visit.  Cool

New suspension arms and bushes, should be a while before it all comes apart again. All bushes and bolts greased up just in case though, bushes will be tightened up once it's on level ground to prevent twisting.

I was trying to post yesterday but it wouldn't take. The places to check the dashboard are the three mounting points that fasten it at the top to the bulkhead and the tops of the two thin pillars either side of the heater controls.

That's perfect information Frank, great timing too as I am planning on having a look at the dash either tomorrow afternoon or on Thursday, now I have a better idea of where the weak points are  Cool

Still plugging away. Wanted to get the exhaust system fitted back on before the radiator whilst access was easier, to line up the back box that meant the bumper needed to be on so cleaned that up and fitted it with the lights for good measure. Amazing how much time it takes to fiddle around with jobs like this, took the lenses off so I could clean all the dirt that gets in the corners.
Powder coated front panel back on, new hi/lo horns, radiator etc back in. A few more bits left to soak overnight to clean years of crud then the underbonnet is almost done.

It's worth putting some black trim restorer on the bumpers and mirrors and letting it soak in for a good while before refitting them. If you haven't fitted the front bumper yet you get a better effect doing it off the car so the shine is present in all the hard to get at nooks and crannies.

Damn, another good idea I should have thought of beforehand..
I'll make sure to do the front one before fitting, rear light lenses off should give me access to the rear enough if I undo the side fixings.

Bang on the money about the dashboard Frank, ns mounting broken and several cracks in the area where the heater controls mount.
Made up some steel strips, bonded and screwed in place.

Have a look at the choke lever too. The "hinge" is a frail bit of bent plastic that snaps, probably sooner rather than later. I have managed so far to maintain a supply of replacements but the last one is now starting to go. I haven't devised a modification to replace the folded plastic arrangement but it is worth bearing in mind and checking.

Yes, I recall you saying about that. Wonder if some kind of piano style hinge could be fitted? Getting it attached to such thin plastic could be an issue. Mine seems OK at the moment....famous last words,,, might have a good look at it though this Saturday to see if any ideas pop up.
Should be getting the engine fired up this weekend, progress slowed now I'm back at work  Sad

Dashboard now back in place, everything seems to be OK apart from the heater fan only working on fast speed. Didn't have an electrical tester to hand yesterday so brought the switch home and tested it today and it works so maybe it's the resister that sits aside the heater blower itself, I'll test it out next Saturday when I'm up there again.
Got the rest of the engine install buttoned up, cooling fan etc back on.
5 gallons of fresh petrol in and with a few drips down the carb to prime it it started up just fine, a few coughs and splutters until the carb filled up properly but idled nicely and up to temp no bother.
New front flexi hoses fitted so the brakes could be filled and bled.
A few little tasks done, fuel gauge didn't work so earthed the wiring at the sender and gauge shot to full so wiring and gauge OK so traced wiring and who would have thought that the earth for the fuel sender goes forward to the rear footwell then along the drivers side loom and to the back of the car where the lights earth! Which of course I hadn't bolted in place yet. So an easy fix.
Next time I'll finish off a couple of bits, sort that fan issue then drop the car back down onto its suspension so I can refit the doors, wings and bonnet so it all aligns up whilst on the ground rather than being on axle stands.
Not actually that far away from being done now.  Cool
