Not a lot of progress lately, I've tried to tidy up the wiring under the bonnet and mounting the body wiring fuse box and relays on the kick panel. I don't know how people manage to make wiring into a thing of beauty.

I ordered some parts last weekend, radiator, injectors, fuel pumps, trans cooler rad, some 9" bits.

Most has arrived, but unfortunately Fedex managed to trash the radiator.

Summit are sending another.

How well the rad performs is up for debate, I called in on Wacky yesterday and looked at a radiator he'd just had made. The turbulators (spelling?) are significantly different. On my budget rad, you can see straight through. On the expensive rad the path is obstructed as the air is forced to flow around and make more contact.
