    Thanks. I wasn't sure whether they would be too modern, but I think they'll work OK.

    All welded up and in place:







    Will look better with a 3" exhaust burping out of each side:

    Rear valance.
    The existing valance is an old repair panel, and whilst it looks original it's rusty, bent and has been welded on at least 20mm out side-to-side, so I'm going to cut it out above the lap-weld and then fit this:



    The license plate recess is not original but should look good.



    The squared-off return at the top will house hidden license plate light(s) and will sit behind the panel so just a rounded rectangle will be visible.

    Wipers.
    I bought this set-up (from a Ford Falcon):

    and initially narrowed it the requisite amount for the width of the wiper holes.
    It didn't fit. Anywhere.....
    So I did the obvious thing and cut it up, turned the shaft tubes and shortened one of the shafts which left me with these bits:


    I made up this bracket to hold them at the correct width:

    Which then grew a bracket of its own:


    Which bolts to the roof support and allows the shaft tubes to protrude just the right amount:



    I decided to utilise the original motor mount:

    Which grew a bracket:

    Then mount brackets with captive nuts (which were welded to the rollcage)

    Then it grew another bracket:

    Which got welded to the other assembly, along with a couple of strengthening gussets:



    In place with the motor and shafts mounted. Just the links to remake now:
