    Well I have a few days off work, so I aim to be driving out of the garage by thursday........!
    So the plan was.... Monday. Day 1Finish wiring. Day 2. Fit carpet seats and all ((or most)) of the interior trim. Day 3. Fill all the fluids and fix any leaks. Bleed brakes etc. Fuel and set carb float heights etc. Then Day 4. Drive it out the garage and up the drive and back.

    So far day 1 saw the wiring all connected and checked. Everything seems to work ok.
    Day 2. ((Today)) Got the dash bolted back in, carpet and seat frame in, Hand brake and shifter gaitors bolted down. Most of the roof lining is in too. I only got 1/2 day on it today unfortunatly. But its on track to drive by thursday.... Fingers crossed!

    Bits you cant really see have been going on. Fuel lines with filters and heat sheathing.
    More wiring. Head lights, indicators and radiator fan. Stuff like that.
    The final trim for the tail gate got trimmed ready to go on as soon as the wiring is finished.
    Not very exciting.... but its all progress.

    A little more progress since the body went back on.
    Front screen and side glass in place. Also fitted the tail gate. and added the plates and lights.
    The moon tank is also mounted.
    The other project was the interior trim. Sewing in all the pleats has been a bit of a mission. But its getting there now. Only a few more bits to finish.
    Most of the wiring is done now too. Just needs tidying up a bit and a final check and test. So soon be running again.
    I also mounted the battery in the back. On the passenger side and hid it behind the boot trims. So thats another problem overcome.
    Slowly slowly its coming along.

    Is it man enough? Im concerned it wont crank the motor. And if it will... not for long.
    It just doesnt look big enough.
    The blower adds a lot of drag when cranking over to start.
