Hopefully can get it all nice and smooth once I glue it down also as it's just sitting on there at the moment :)
Next up is the gauge cluster I think. I need to make a new one as I have a new speed and tacho so need to fabricate a new surround.
The door cards won't be far away though. I am still undecided on them as I just did them in plain velour last time. But I am thinking vinyl and valour potentially.

Its been awhile since a post with moving house and building the new shed, but i finally got a few hours on the weekend to try and remember where i was up to.
I finally finished off the gauge cluster (attached), then i  just need to finalise the lighting circuit wiring for my centre console gauges, get the new fuel sender and speed sensor working, general put back together and back on the road!

Isn't it great to have gauges that work and visible at night??

Its been awhile since an update.
Car is now pretty much back together. 

The list of things to complete:
  • Wire up electronic speedo
  • Modify fuel tanker sender to work with smiths gauge (haven't worked this one out yet)
  • Check everything is nice and tight ready to drive
  • Put finishing touches on interior
I cant recall if i mentioned i had to pull the engine out again to fix a gearbox leak (my stupidity for not putting the paper seal between the bell housing and gearbox). That has also been completed. I was able to have the engine out within about 1.5 hours and back in within the hour, all with the help of the hoist and dropping the engine out from below the car, instead of lifting it up.
A few little update pics below, and hopefully a pic when its back on the road in about 1 month.

Fuel tank sender roughed in.
I saved the original sender and fuel cap as it's the same as the capri tank
