    Thanks for that suggestion Fozwanger. I've now found a Sprite switch cover - so I'll see if it fits?
    Steady progress getting a bit more of the electrics working and made a start on fitting the hood.

    Got the heater assembled and fitted, sorted the radiator hoses and filled it with water and antifreeze- but there was a small coolant leak at the heater tap so had to retighten that......

    Here is the heater in place



    Then a nice man came to put the windscreen in - although I have done "stringing" in the past it is a lot less risky to get an expert in!


    Then I put the newly re-covered seats and trim loosely in place



    Then started the engine and drove it forward ---- 6 Feet!!.......

    Thanks Foz!
    Lots more jobs done! The hood frame has been painted and I covered the cross rails with the maroon alicantera. The holes in the header rail didn't match up with the windscreen locating pins so some elongation was called for with a file.



    Then I refurbished the glovebox lids


    and started to fit the hood - but it is too cold and so the fabric is very stiff. So I put the new carpets in place, together with the seats again, to look pretty over the weekend!
    Various items of trim have also been fitted. The people with good colour vision will have noticed that there are three shades of red now on the car........C' est la Vie!!
