Finally have the body back and I am now ready to start rebuilding. Just got the engine bay and arches painted (stone chip under the colour), reckon it would have taken about 4 years to get the whole car done :lol:

one switch at a time:

Brake light switch alternative, bin that plastic switch that's prone to melting.
