    To alleviate the problem of the changing alignment of the cable, I fabricated a small bracket with a plastic roller for the cable to roll around between the bulkhead and the pedal.

    No choke on my 1404 carb. Three pumps, if the car has been left for a few days, then she fires up.

    First step into the sunlight with the new hardtop fitted. Now just to find someone local to paint it.

    Very pleased with the overall look and fit. The headlining is another matter all together !!

    I am afraid I am with Bannon on this. In my opinion, I felt sticking rivet heads on, was a step too far. For this reason, I went with drilling and tapping as a "proper" engineer should.
