I managed to get me a full copy of Practical Classics from when my car was featured back in August 2002.

:-)

Thanks for the pointers Alan Furness

The dash panel is pretty much done now on the firepit. I even managed to terminate everything into a couple of multi plugs for easy removal in the future. All numerically labelled too & wiring diagram drawn up otherwise i wont stand a chance of fault finding at a later date. Tidy. 20200803_233513.jpg

Under bonnet wiring module has made light work of most of the wiring.

Wish my wiring was as neat as that :? I had a Basil Fawlty style rage fit a few months ago after it broke down... again... I calmly got the car home - wheeled it into the garage, and cut every single under bonnet and behind the dash cable out with a pair of snips. This car WILL be reliable :-)

ol for the connectors Ah - i see that the internet battle still rages on in terms of Solder Joints vs Crimps :-) I used to solder everything until i was enlightened into using a quality pair of crimps - now I crimp wherever possible as the connections are absolutely bomb proof if executed properly....

The interior rewire is getting there now. Slowly but surely. Wire by wire...

Finally! Got the ride height sorted. No issues with speedbumps too which is amazing given how low it now sits.

Goes sideways in the dry too - very controllable with a cheeky Scandinavian flick. One happy bunny at present. Stancegoals 2020 achieved.

Still fiddling with the rear ride height to reduce the 'tail high' look. Thats about as low as i can go at the rear. In probably gonna have to raise the front a smidging to go completely level at rest.

Thanks Chris - priority 1 is definitely the ride height. Is the spoiler you mention, the one in the pic?
