Drivers side floor now done, just awaiting the blasted cross member to come back:)

the handbrake cable on passenger side was seized so it was removed, twisted, pulled and pushed then dosed with GT85 Thatfreed it so it is now hanging in the vice with oil seeping through it :)

New copper brake pipes made and a new end on the exhaust mounting :)

Front caliper soaked in oxalic acid for a bit, brought them up lovely :)

and painted :)

then came the weekend

Attacked the floor with a grinder and drill..

Made up a panel that fitted the gap..

And glued it in :)

Made a little doohicky which enabled me to connect my hydraulic press ram to the seized front claipers of my Zodiac, not seized anymore :)

Found 1 of the two manifolds so had a pattern to copy so I could make the second one. Now all fitted and we have now got it running.

All be it using a temp fuel tank as the original was found to have a hole in it after it was grit blasted.
Found some rust under the floor pan crossmember :(

Need to get this bit grit blasted
