second pic from the top, wheel just peekin through the arch, is that a trial fit on how you are having the suspesion lol. Love that number plate FYI "for your infomation". Nice amount of space you have around the car to work, very wise. Looking forward to seeing how it all turns out, agree about the seats, adds character.

Engine in and running have terrible problems with the actuator is it positive or negative earth it's a lucas 11ac one but getting plenty of sparks out of it I used the diagram on how to install here but no joy .. also drove the car up to my house from the shed for the first time was a brilliant feeling to have it move under her own steam .. any help with the alternator greatly appreciated thanks guys
