Today I have written a 'remaining jobs' list just for fun.

Fuel tank and pipe to pump.   

Radiator brackets and top hose.     

Sender units and coil mounting.     

Washer bottle and plumbing.     

Check all brake pipe unions     

Longer wheel studs all round     

Identify and terminate all the wires under the dash     

Finish back door shut glassing up.(my 'wet weather' job)     

Battery mounts and cables    

Exhaust (awaiting parts)    

That should keep me busy for a day or two.…
