    Off white - or 'ivory' as they call it ... I'll do a comparison of all of the vinyl when finished and a review of the Furniture Clinic stuff that I'm using ...

    I’ve fitted a new reversing switch and speedo drive cable. I think they were both leaking gearbox oil.
    And cleaning exhaust valves and making cam tower dowels.

    This month I have mostly been..........polishing (again). Doing a spot of porting and polishing work on a spare cylinder head because I'm bored. Ports all done just the combustion chambers to do and endless measurements to get them equal.

    I agree. Looks great.
    Can I pick some nits?
    Surely you’re going to have air filters, no? And I’d recommend upgrading to a bypass fuel pressure regulator, They’re better in a couple of ways.

    Thanks guys, I'm very pleased about how it's coming together.
    I love the look of these open side trumpets but realise they are not very practical for everyday road use, so will likely get a cold air induction box and filter before getting on the road.
    Tell me more about bypass fuel pressure regulators though please.

    As part of a interior revamp, I've been working on restoration of interior decals and switches. Pretty chuffed with results thus far.:)
