Bit more tunnel work done, and starting to think about the brake pedal, through the bottom of the car, or through the fire wall, sort of like the idea of through the firewall to keep the floor clear.

Still a little more welding and grinding, but starting to look better.

Now Pedal Options, through the floor, or ... move it forward and come through the bulkhead.. Hmm.

Bulkhead mounting gets my vote, so easy to do if you’ve got the space for master cylinders , surely under floor is more prone to dirt and water spray and seized parts.

Yes, true. Although the master cylinder is already mounted under the floor and will require a cover so that cover will have to project forward cover the pedal mechanism on either option. :)

A bit slow, but the frames been fitted under the edges, forgot to take a picture, and now the final bits starting to be fitted

Blind nuts and bolts will replace the pins to allow the tunnel to be removable together with the other panels of the floor and prop shaft tunnel.

Floor and tunnel 95%, gear lever linkage done. Now it’s time to move on to the doors, blimey they are a horrid fit.
