Got a mate of mine who works for a large garage supply company up here to get me my plates.

Also spoke with my painter toady and I'm picking up my wheel arches tomorrow after work the Monday I'll get the doors and boot, and Tuesday collect the front and bonnet. Don't want to collect them all at once as I don't want to scratch them.

So I thought why waste time? so I dug the boot lock and bonnet catches out and refitted them!

I see if I can get away tomorrow afternoon when the bread knife gets up and go and get the doors & front end.

Got my doors back yesterday, so I started to build them back up, all went well until it came to the drivers door handle/lock only to find the the threads have been stripped in one of the holes and that the locks themselves are beyond saving / repairing. A quick search and found a replacement door handle and a new lock set has been ordered, so Ill get these fitted to the car today that'll be another thing off the list and getting closer to being rebuilt!

Yeah just a bit! but it's been one forward and 2 back, spent the last 6 hours tracing a wiring fault causing the ecu to stay powered up even when the keys are out turned out to be a fault relay anyway sorted now
started re-fitting the fuse and relay panel and also the plate that blanks the hole in the bulkhead that the main wiring grommet goes through. Not long now
