    When I get laid off in a few months I may need something to do, might even resurrect my old classic car business.

    very good Dave!

    Aaron - think you need to start rationalising the toy box - too many broken toys and not enough time/money to fix 'em.
    I think there's a TV program you can apply to where a bossy woman comes round, tells you you're an arse and gets you to chuck out all the stuff you love.

    Nope, still daft enough to work on anything. Although Crendon is my main focus Absolute Horsepower is still very much alive. I seem to be IVA prepping and finishing more and more cars of late which currently includes a Cobretti Viper at present.

    okay,next update - gauges trial fitted, covering received an whilst she was at work.......




    I measured the smaller holes to ensure I had allowed for the 1mm each side of the gauge.



    got the vinyl down in the first attempt - phew


    really please I got it right 1st time





    started cutting the holes now and fitting everything in, my lucas loom requires 2 indicator warning lights so fitted right side to the right - ran out of time tonight - will finish off during the week



    more soon...............

    Hi All,

    latest update is progress has been really slow, spent my time on the sidepipes and other outside features whilst I was waiting for S&J to modify my wiper switch so it works like the original (gis a call mr Brookes!! Nailed it!)

    so the pic is just progress showing the dash nearing completion. I've not fitted the 3 gauges as the tubes get in the way whilst I wiring it all in.

    Hope this inspires you all, if you need any info drop me a line. I will start a thread on the body work next - Lee

    Love that, Lee! Beautiful work.

    Could you do me an (odd) favour and measure how tall your dash is where the steering column comes through?

    Aaron, from the top of the column to the underside of the scuttle is 3 1/4” obviously the hole for the column takes a bit of that space but you don’t need to make an oval hole which would give you more space. If I measured from the top of the oval I only have 2 1/2”. Thanks
