    Again I can see solutions to most of the issues here but this thread is to open up discussion isn't it?

    I will be covering all this stuff in more depth in my book.

    Spoon will need radiuing I think , check with Nick, removing it then leaves the bonnet hinge ( which isn't there in your case) open to having to meet rad requirments a much harder job than rading the spoon.

    My 'hinge' has a fairly nice radius on it so maybe not an issue, I think Geoff on here has a smoothed out spoon for this reason which I think I can borrow to make a cast of a smoother one for mine.

    Bit late on this one but a full rad job before paint would be the normal way to go. In this instance probably a bonded cover with correct radius should sort it. Need of course to check first, and balance out the fact that hinges on a rod style body can only project 50mm, 40mm on shoebox style motors.

    Yes, easy job to fix if car unfinished. I think a 3mm ally plate shaped to the door part of the hinge with full radiused edges bonded & gloss black painted should fix that then. Hinges protrude less than 40mm so no issues there.
    Hidden hinges would of course cure all of this and I would have fitted them all those years ago if I know how at the time - would have made aligning the doors far easier too!

    Mostly looking for the 'no' answers kev like the number plate & washer jet questions, just checked in garage with some wooden battens and I think I'm ok on the 5 degrees rearwards angles on the side repeaters, will need to get a protractor & laser guide out to make sure though.

    Could you not make up a hinge cover with the side repeater fitted into it? Kill 2 birds with one stone.

    Worth looking at but bearing in mind the door handle .

    OOPS. Just thought mirror will probably be the part in the way.

    So grateful you are doing this thread.
    Builders will be able to take a lot from it.

    Its down to wiring again though. The loom is finished & completely sheathed everywhere with adhesive shrink tube on the ends, so not an option for altering now really. Apart from that it would be a mare getting the wiring up into the door hinges. Wiring for the wing repeaters is a simple job of just making loom extensions to plug into the existing loom plugs.

    Wiring for the fog & reversing lamps should not be too bad as I left a couple of 'spare' wires in the loom which can be used, though the fancy box of tricks for the fog lamp will be fun to wire into the column as there is no room left at all in there - but that's a story for another installment.

    Trying to keep everything as simple as possible to do with a little impact on the finished car as possible, many things would be dead easy if built into the car from the start.

    Wiring can be modified for the test without totally redoing by running additional wires with split sheathing over the top. Again easier if a planned build , I'll keep putting that so peopel don't get overawed.
