Got the main part of the chassis built up - new master cylinder from the loft stash, made some new hard lines and some braided flexis, that I got from a well known supplier, which turn out not to be type 3 as advertised (wrong combination of male and female ends on one) so going to have to get one made separately which is a pain.

Finally got the main part of the chassis and body together with help from my mate Jon. All new stainless bolts and body washers from Volksbolts. Front beam on next when i can twist the wifes arm into giving me a hand (there's only mm of clearance with the body). Hopefully headliner in the next few weeks too

Time for an update. So in 2019 I got as far as getting a new headliner supplied and fitted (at home!) by AJRetrims. Brilliant job. He's got the seats and door panels for trimming in a cloth/vinyl combo.

Marks bug finally finished so am back on this now. Loosely aiming for nec classic car show 2020 (if it happens).

Fast forward a bit - rebuilt the rear subframe. All new suspension rubbers, bearings, brakes etc with some goodridge braided hoses and new high tensile bolts from volksbolts. Managed to get it under the car and fitted without scratching either which was a bonus. Just some handbrake cables to come then can get the drums on, then it's on to the front beam.

Great work Steve.... Coming along nicely.
You would have probably had this finished by now, if someone hadn't have pestered you with a yellow 1303!!!
