    Yes, and there's more to come. There are a few small wrinkles and the steamer and hair dryer have removed some of the smallest ones.
    Pictures 1,2 and 5 show the rear blind detail. The acorn on the front end of cord is the original thing found on the back shelf. The driver reaches up and pulls the cord forwards and the acorn hooks into the screw-in hook at just the right point to hold the blind up. I had some of the blind but luckily a good friend had the roller bit so I could then get some material off a blind bought on ebay and finished it off. I think some of the wrinkles in the stitching were due to my inexperience with the machine but overall I am happy with this.















    Another thing this car has, assume it was fitted from new, is a double sided interior mirror. At night to cut dazzle from the rear, the mirror can be rotated on its ball joint so the other mirror is used that subdues the reflection.
    Ps so glad the picture problem has been solved.

    And these are my lovely Bakelite sun visors in place. Good excuse to get the dark brown Cherry Blossom out. I have never seen any others in these cars but then its not surprising as they are mostly tucked away out of sight.






    And there is the double sided interior mirror.

    Well thats it for now. Its all together although I need to redo some paintwork when I get the chance. Got to sell my very original 1953 e493a Prefect as I'm moving house and garage to West Wales and need a bit more space plus two old cars will be enough. I dont plan on any more projects but you never know what will turn up when you are not looking.........................

    Well, contrary to the above, I have another project on the go. I am modifying a Reliant Robin gearbox to fit in one of my Ford engined sidevalves to give it an extra cog. So far I have chopped the bell housing and made a new flange. I have re-sited the clutch lifter cross shaft from above to below the main shaft. I have made a replacement back end bearing housing that is Reliant facing forward and Ford facing backwards. This unit has taken about a week of turning and drilling plus hours of thinking and sketching. Currently, I am making the rear mounting brackets in a steel angle welded fabrication. I am hopeful the finished assembly will fit in place with minimum disruption but it will need engine moved forward, probably about half an inch.

    I managed to buy a good original one on but they seem very rare now as haven't seen another.
    Will try to post some pictures here but I have trouble as my orevious attempts brought up a message that I need some other software such as flash player. The box is close to finishing, all welding done, all machining done, just assembling the i ternals now. If no joy with pictures here will look out your email and send them. Cheers, Dave

    Reliant gearbox for a Ford sidevalve

    Reliant gearbox modified to fit a Ford upright sidevalve engine. First picture is the finished job, sorry its inverted. Second picture is the stage where the reliant bell housing has been removed and assessing how much to remove to allow the new aluminium flange less a machining allowance after welding.
    Third picture is the gearbox shell set in lathe to machine the bell housing.
