the side trims being put on

The later European cars had the side trims on the doors. Got them form Kevin at ebspares. Are going on...slightly different as these are being installed with screws rather than the clips before. The clips were in bad shape almost crumbling and would have come off.
One seat has been assembled. The roof lining is being done... another few days

Apart from a bevy of classic cars much other traffic?

Just came across the thread. Makes the average resto look quite tame. Very entertaining.

My reply concerned the trip to the Chinese border many pages back in the thread. Looked like fun.

I'm amazed how quickly the project is proceeding given the amount of labor involved. Great job.

up in the air

the car is up in the air. the engine mounts are probably from the Milano.... some metal bending artistry will possibly be required to correct exhaust fouling. The dash is beng fitted while the dash cover is being done up in leather. The dash is the inetrmediate year where the central dash auxiliary instruments were in the main pod. This dash came in RHD in only one year... 1981 or 82.

the AC condenser and fan can be seen ... new stuff. The radiator fans in the back are original.

the steering wheel is plastic with a faux wood paper veneer. This is almost impossible to set right so will probably be done in leather

the dash being covered

initially had the dash covered in leatherite but it started to show a lack of shine and a few cuts and bruises ... decided to have leather instead. The pics show the leather being put on

exhaust fitted starting ....

the car had timing that was rather out.... Alfabb helped of course ... car was not developing compression although starting and throwing out fuel rapidly.

Hopefully done.

Looking great. You mentioned ignition timing issues, do you have carbs or injection on it? Do you have a vacuum advance canister on the distributor, anf if yes where is the vacuum hose connected to (photos)?

I see injection.

BTW if you are having ignition timing issues, the first thing I would check is that the distributor is still timed correctly as it is "not unheard of" for these to jump a tooth or 2 on the cambelt. I've even fixed a 75 with this issue myself.

BTW: Looking fantastic. Really is a car bought back from the dead ... AGAIN!

the dash and interior...carpet

slow Oh so slow. The interior fitment proceeds. The upholsterer is taking his sweet time with the carpet and seats. Its basically a day job..but he takes days off and disappears. But has promised me this week. Until then some photos...that by the way I can't see myself. Theres something wrong with the BBS

It is the most incredible restoration I have ever seen. What ever the cost was there in Pakistan, I can only imagine what it would be here in California.....
