So, it’s been about 2.5 years since I last posted in this thread. Sorry to dig up an old thread but there have been a few things ‘finished off’ now so how's about an update.

Found some better engine covers that were worth polishing up:

Also eventually got hold of some good hubs which were polished up and laced to new old stock rims:

Also, after an age got some dent and scrape free exhausts that worth the (considerable) expense of re-chroming, the headers are Delvick stainless steel aftermarket parts that have been polished up.

Made a new brake linkage assembly (rod and rose joints) in stainless steel all nicely polished

So finally, after nearly 6 years it finished!!

And she's up for sale....... I’ll put a listing in the for-sale section if anyone is interested.
