And finally topcoat, not perfect by any means but I prefer it to having black paint slapped everywhere and not knowing what was underneath it....

Is that a hole I see in the dash on the glove box side?

Cheers guys.

That is indeed a big hole in the dash That and the airbox are still rather 'holy'. Still not sure if the dash is going back in so that hole maybe neatened up and speedo mounted in front of it. May get the vents in front of the screen welded up as well, I can't find a replacement airbox and I won't be running any ventilation anyway.

I smoothed the vents on the scuttle too to avoid future rust.

I had to replace the bottom of the wiper motor box and make new parts for the glove box area as mine was rotted! I still have a dash clip in the workshop if its of interest?
