    Hi Ron & Chunky there are some signs of rust very minor and some bubbling of the paint, and yes a totally different colour is required - still period but different, a rewire was always on the cards as some of it had got quite hot, as I have a good mate who does auto electrics seems a good time to get that sorted as well, also need to sort a slightly different solution for the steering as the current system using a rubber bush scared me when I checked it ..... see pic and yes I did replace it after the pic was taken

    Damp in Garage is sort of sorted - at least wont be a problem after the heat has been in there a few days, so started to get the engine and box ready for extraction.

    Some more advice for what it's worth.

    Take lots of pictures for reference of how it was before the strip down

    Oh yes, I am, lots and lots, just not going to post any more until there is something different to see.

    drawings being made and measuring wires etc, been here before and know what it is like trying to remember what went where, it ws bad enough at 40 at 50+ could be a nightmare without reference, cheers for the advice though.

    Now we're motoring. Are you stripping it to a bare shell? I only ask because the underneath was all done in green so will need changing.
    Good luck, Ron.
