A lot of the little details are missing underneath so I made my own U clamps.

All great work Dave but the engine and dash are gorgeous.

Thank you all. More work done, slowly.

I've decided to go with the stock headlights after asking around for peoples opinions on it. I had to make a couple of tab supports on the underside of the front bumper to make it a more solid fit.

I'm working on making the engine bay 'suitably busy' by throwing in all sorts of wires and boxes and stuff, after all there's plenty of room in here. The expansion tank is a touch wonky but it's in now.

Awesome work! The engine bay is just fabulously busy and the body paint is simply gorgeous (I may be repeating myself here, lol).

Thank you all. A little more done. Lack of decals means having to get going with the freehand painting, i'm amazed I managed the water bag to an acceptable standard. Mirror still hangs on by a thread. Onwards.

Acceptable?, looks brilliant to me, a great piece of detailing that brings the whole engine bay to life.
