    Yeah, it faded quite a bit. No matter though, since I won't be using that shell anymore.

    Nah. Will probably put off painting this one for a while. Need to fix a bit of rust around the windscreen at some point though, so it will get sprayed at some point. Haven't really thought about what colour/s though. I might even investigate getting a cheap 2 pack job done later on.

    Wheels, tyres, suspension and resealing the sump are the main priorities at the moment. Work will begin on the weekend or early next week as I'm moving house over the next couple of days.

    Had a tinker with the carb this afternoon and raised the idle a tad so the whole car wasn't shaking from the harmonic resonance. Also adjusted the accelerator pump so it doesn't bog down as much when you stab the throttle.

    Haha. I wonder why I didn't pick up on that before.

    Adjusted the clutch today so it doesn't pick up just above the floor.

    So this is how she sits at the moment. Lowered all round using a mix and match of springs and bits. Swapped the front bumper off the shell since it looks a bit nicer, and had the proper clear parkers. Air con gear all removed (a bit useless without the compressor) and all the better interior bits from the shell installed. Engine bay cleaned up and all the buggered vacuum hose replaced with fresh stuff. Rocker cover painted with wrinkle black for an extra 15HP.

    Waiting on my neck to not be retarded so I can take the wheels down to get the centre bores machined out, then hopefully find some 145/65R13 to wrap them in and massage the rear guards. Following that, RWC and rego!

    Following that, it'll get lowered a bit more, then removal of one of the mufflers and remaking the rear half of the exhaust. I'll buy a little trumpet to fix to the carb throat as well for funnies. Then a bit later on, when funds/time permit, perhaps I'll venture out and do a bit of this...



    Also, this thing sounds rad with the rear section of exhaust unbolted.
