Nice work.  Your carby has auto choke but you have blocked off the hose fittings.  You will need to sort that out one way or the other before starting up.

The brakes are almost complete. Most all as original, excluding discs,pads and wheel bearings.
Door rubber windows and door handles,delete/ option mirror are on. All of it looks nice.
Carburettor don’t know where it’s going at the moment.

But overall looking very nice.

Wasn’t expecting wheels to be fitted till next year. Minilite wheels nicely painted were swapped over with the globes originally purchased from CTM.
Instead of 15x7 replacement 15x6.
A poor choice of tyre was chosen by my father, followed by my sister purchasing them for me as a gift.
Bridgsestone 205x50 re71rs
More tread. Would have been better suited for car and rim.

they look great Reeni, silver against the jewel green is a nice contrast.
Minilights are a classic wheel, you cant go wrong.
Nearly there!

I had looked around as well asked others, with no result
My seat belts all but one was correct.
They had all been changes
So no choice dad has place the order using chromed type.
They will be black belts.
As all trim colour has changed from brown.
In which case the rear of the interior looks to be totally un original topped of with chrome buckles
Rear quarter cards shortened due to fibreglass tops on not sitting close enough to windows
Brackets beneath roof lining removed
Wasn’t either happy with the fibreglass rear parcel shelf. Covering sponge and black vinyl.
So I decided to top it all off by using gt badges at the rear of rear cards
All changes are easy enough changed to its original. That’s reason searching black belts for future changes.
In my opinion looks good
May not look so good to others.
Hey is there any one making rear door cards that can fit correctly to the glass
These are what is on offer from classic restorations in SA
Price 1600$ Normally you must send complete belts as exchange. They were kind enough to accept the parts. I had to exchange.
If any one needs buckles I do have three left for free
Also a couple of brown bucked belts
Belts are cut so will need re doing

Be careful covering the rear shelf area.  The slots near the bottom of the rear window are part of the ventilation system.  Dont cover them up.

At the rear there is small space between parcel shelf and rubber.
I’m planing next year to have a Bose Bluetooth sound bar. Most likely a new shelf will be needed. As it a mtr long.
No stereo required.

Seat belts have arrived already I’m happy with how they look.
It’s unfortunate that the circle isn’t gold as we asked. Not complaining,
I’m greatful
