    still lots to sort like see how the dash fits and if the omega speedo ect can be modded to fit,abs is going on to chassis lh side in front of bulkhead with a relay/fuse box and engine ecu above,screen wash and header tank other side.want to fit the fuse box under passenger seat behind a pull out bin.looks like I will be making my own heater unit as well unless some thing turns up.

    made the passenger seat mount today,worked out a few more things and tried the dash in for clearance .took the omega instrument cluster apart and found that with a mod to the original opening in the austin dash they do fit.parcel shelf also wil go back in and clear pedals.will try and cut out the rear panel tomorrow and get the wood frame out and see if I can get a hand to lift roof insert out and hang it from to roof of workshop.

    its a bugger when you have to work 6 days a week with a random day every 2 weeks but had a random day yesterday and as I now have gas and fixed the sticking liner on the mig got some welding done .trans cover,floor ,bulkhead almost finished .measured up for tube for roll bar and dedion axle so I can get some prices.hope to get a bit done tomorrow but have to do a skip run(bloody garden keeps growing) and bet the missis finds something needs doing.
