Well i picked up the bit's so theres nearly everything i need to get her finished now..

Then last night came and we went out on the lash ended up on sabuca's and all that shit as normal so the weekend spanking for the bug didn't happen LMAO..

Chrome trim, bumpers, indicators, headlights, running boards, rear wings and beading, heat exchangers, s/s exhaust, tinware, dizzy, points, condenser, coil clamp painted, coil fitted, fuel pump, bottom pulley, door rubbers, fuel tank, fuel lines, track rod ends, front brake lines, brake resevoir and pipes.
All fitted now just need a dynamo then motor can go in and fired up then bleed the brakes and fit rear light bulb holders the mot time..

I'll get pics on the weekend when it should be back together and driving..

Popped to exeter and collected a dynamo from Delboy then over to GSF to take back some bits that were wrong and buy a new clutch kit, engine bay seal..

So after dinner got out the workshop fitted the new clutch, dynamo, carb ect..
Tried fitting the motor in and do you think the bugger would fit in with the stock exhaust on so had to take it off then the motor slipped straight in...
Got it back together plumbed in and wired up, chuck some fuel in the tank and flicked the key... Nothing so chucked some fuel down the carb she cughed and spluttered..
Anyway got her to run in the end but only by putting fuel down the carb..

The fuel line was blocked solid so had to dig out loads of rock hard underseal, put it back together again..


So she now run fires up first flick of the key.. Gonna higher the rear end up a spline

Lifted the rear end up a spline, fitted the dynamo pulley and belt so i could run it properly then timed it up and took it for a drive round the yard with just a hand brake..
Gonna need to lift it another spline and lift the front up a bit aswell cos theres only 1 inch of ground clearance!!!!
Also fitted the engine lid on..

lol! lol!

mrs griff could have done with something like that doing to her 1302s

well she could reach the pedals (just) the problem was the seat was to far foward and not catching on the locking mech so when she pressed the clutch down the seat would slide back past the lock and on towards the back seat lol!

she couldn't see out or reach the peadals when that happened but was already driving down the road pale
