        Ok, slow but definite progress again. The real reason for this post is to give a plug for Past Parts https://www.pastparts.co.uk/

        Tel 01284 750729 or email [email protected]. Nigel there is a very helpful guy, I was having great difficulty finding a
        seal kit for my brake m/cylinder - or even a replacement item.........there is now a kit on it's way to me, many thanks to Nigel

            Nice out so I thought I'd get it out !

            With the engine hoist and stand now redundant it was time for a shuffle around in the garage.

            I won't bore you with details, but Jago progress continues

              Looking good DC. Must make a nice change from Marlins for you.

                Sure is a change Jon, and it's great to see it coming together.

                Interesting to note some variations between Mr Ford and Mr BL

                I am finding the constant cleaning/derusting/priming/painting a little wearing and
                looking forward to soon getting a floor made and the body back on - once I've put
                all the engine bits back on, finished the carb refurb. and the head/valves sorted.

                Best Wishes DC

                  Does anyone have one of these ?

                  It's a clutch cable clip from a Mk1 Escort, and they are available for around £20 ! ! ! (Owch)

                  With my Scrooge hat on, I wonder of anyone may have one lying around in a box of bits ?

                    The body is now on, and thank you Bill, the seats will fit.

                    With thanks to Danny I now have a heater, which I have refurbed, and it's provisionally in place.

                    Next big job will be the floor

                        Are you sure that's the right rocker cover gasket?

                          It'll be OK when it's cut down to size

                            That is the trouble with kit cars, they are very addictive!!

                              You're so right Dave !

                              Here's the engine after the head gasket was cut to size, and the early CAD for the wooden floor.

                                Making CAD small patterns. 'Yorkshire Tea' cardboard is very good. The boxes can be opened up very easily and the card is almost craft quality. The tea is excellent too! It's looking good.
