Have had some time now to get doing some work, I have fitted a load of parts back on now and have finally got my Vintage Speed exhaust fitted after trouble with the heat rises and header pipes.

I have had all ther interior painted the same colour as the outside including steering wheel etc..

Fitted the rebuilt front end with drop spindles..

Here are some photos showing the progress, in a few weeks I take the car to the motor trimmers to have the roof lining fitted, hopefully all wiried up so I can drive it down, but might have to tow it.

Then I have to lower the rear of the car.

Have fiitted a hidden MP3 player/Ipod player mini AMP, just wondering if anyone had used one of these and how well they work?
