i started the work on it tonight and got it running but ive got a problem with the carb sticking .i had a good look for any welding that needs doing and only found a hole in the spare wheel well, the rest seems solid.all the lights work but cant get the wipers or washers to work .the main thing at the moment is get it on the road and start having some fun in it.well as much fun as you can with a 1300
