Getting so so close to the first run now. I've finished fitting the cycle wings (what a job!!) and also got the rear lights fitted and working.. Needed those for the test run as obviously one needs brake lights LOL. Wont be fitting the front lights for the test run as 1, don't need them and 2, don't have any bulbs for them as yet...

I managed to get the engine started again after a weekend of trouble. Seemed I had the ignition timing just a little out, but far enough out to make a difference.. Went back to basics and re-timed it from scratch and she started first time again!! Even started on the handle for the first time too...

Managed to finally fit the choke cable too which has been needing done for a while.. Also semi fitted the motormeter in the radiator cap and will finish that this week. Will also complete the wiring in the engine compartment as I'm awaiting some vintage junction boxes which should come this week..

So, hopefully, this weekend I take the car on its first outing...
