    Hi sorry not been on here for a while . the 2 door doors do come up from time to time but they are very expensive and thin on the ground now in good condition . i ended up salvaging the doors from my old van project for this one but would like to get a better set myself at some point

    been a busy few months down the workshop but finally got the motor running properly after the hassles i had with it last year . I ended up removing the injection for the time being as it just wasn't playing ball and i couldn't get it to stay running correctly but all is well now and for now its just going to make a nice change to be able to get out with it and have some fun
    made a start on cleaning up the engine bay over the weekend tucked all the wires away and removed the last of the injection wiring



    still a little bit left to do but at least there's no longer any bits hanging around that don't need to be there.
    got a few small bits of paint that need repairs from being in the workshop and getting bumped about a bit just need to try and get hold of some more paint as it seems to be next to impossible to find at the moment (house of kolor PBC46 Kopper pearl ) any ideas

    the hinges are Australian ones they allow the bonnet to open to just past vertical so you can get to the rear plugs on the 6 cylinder ones and also makes it easy to get the engine out without removing the bonnet
