Filled diff and gearbox and fitted rear ARB (still needs drop links).
Converted LH door to manual windows and fitted - then realised that the outer handle was broken :twisted:
door still opens, so it’s staying for now :D
sorted LH seat and got the sheared bolt out of the floor, just need new bolts to secure the seat.
So as of today, the list to make test day looks like this:

Finish off RH steel floor
Fit RH seat and harness
Remove Spax adjustable rear dampers from Megan3 and fit to C686
Fit steering rack bellows
Fit track rod ends
Fit calipers
Bleed brakes
Fit wheels
Secure battery tray
Convert RH door to manual windows
Fit RH door
Repair or replace indicator stalk
Fit stalk, shroud and steering wheel
Fit fuel pressure regulator and plumb in fuel pump
Fit rear ARB droplinks
Fit bootliner
Fit bootlid
Fit headlight panel
Fit nose cone
Fit bonnet
Fit hardtop (swap glass sunroof in blue hardtop for Perspex or use red hardtop)
Check geometry
MOT (optional)

Spent most of today chasing electrical problems with the headlights. Eventually sorted enough for an MOT (no headlamp motor function) after taking the steering wheel off and the cowl apart for the third time :twisted:

Fitted the RH door though, as well as the nose cone and headlight panel.

aye all is good :wink:

I do like Reliant's method of build/ stock control, large felt pen written on the panels, beats any fancy 'JiT' system . .. . :shock:

Had the dash back out again - firstly to get an ignition feed to the rear heated screen wire, to power the fuel pump. After putting it all back together, the Rev counter didn’t work :evil: swapped it and it still didn’t work, so I ended up swapping out the complete flexible circuit board.

Fitted the Spax adjustable but the rear is far too high, so more work needed there.

Fitted the bonnet (had to adjust the hinges and the locks!) and wiper blade.

Fitted the fuel pump and plumbing.

The radiator is from a VW Polo - I have one fitted to G97 and similar fitted to Megan3 and snotty (with inlet/outlet on the RHS for the K series/Ti).

CVH has a mechanical pump as standard.
