Oops it's been a while so please forgive me...I'm talking to Rusty not you guys.

And then it went to have it's heart looked at and refitted. Hardened valve stems for unleaded and new cam fitted as original was pitted. New lifters and a nice tidy up some paint on the old extractors too just to tie it all together.

Yes the inside of the boot was painted too....bet you thought I forgot that

http://i1306.photobucket.com/albums/s562/MyRustyRS/IMG_7949_zpskgj3muyz.jpg

Now for some sound deadening Dynamat laying....

http://i1306.photobucket.com/albums/s562/MyRustyRS/IMG_7950_zps9aly788l.jpg

But then that led to the next problem....fitting the carpet and the door seals...fitted door seals and looked at the headlining, 36 years old and dirty.

Only one solution to go with the new sunroof, ok new as in ordered two years ago and now able to be fitted....great trimmer...so good I asked them to fit the carpet too.

Well that's it I'm busy fitting door trims console perhaps and then seats to the beast, only problem Mother's day this weekend....nooooo

Yeah, looking good mate. It must be so exciting all coming together now.
I just had some long-time-coming welding done on my MkI on the weekend. That's exciting too :-)

So today went to see how progress was going...and it is going so all good.

New photo's the nose needs re-rubbing after the last f'wit attempt was bad. The new crashie thought the old had done the right thing, well he had to one small bit but nothing else....

Will go fit the boot lid next weekend and black bit home to try and keep them clean for now...
