Cheers, there are just a couple of wrinkles left but I can put up with them. The hair dryer is a must to make it supple.

Now the fun of getting the raspberrys back in the car.

Well they are back in. The frame at the back has distorted a little when fitting and the front isn't quite in place but I was getting a bit frustrated so as they are in and ok thought I'd try again when I was in a better mood.

Late update. Lights were not and issue for the MOT (had a spare set in the back of the car just in case). Fuel tank was leaking so had to change that and had to put the new pick up and return in it. Had a moment of panic when I went to start up and thought I might have put the sender on upside down. But all is well.

Glad to hear it was a relatively painless mot. I think the spiyda fuel gauge wizard that i fitted has a jumper link on it that lets you invert the fuel gauge feed anyway, so it wouldn't have been a total pain to sort

What I'm looking for is some seat covers for the front but every set I find is two piece or just to keep the seat clean when you're working on it. I did see one set that looked good then saw the near 200 price tag and changed my mind.

Ouch, the seats are from a toyota mr2 roadster (mk3) so it might be easier to just buy a spare set from a scrap car
