Quick update, not done a great deal as I've been flat out at work, still not got a loom for the bus! Big mistake not ordering this sooner :x: anyway moan over, got the beam on, petrol tank in, gear linkage back in, all pedals fitted, master cylinder. Need to order servo this wk, engine rebuilt and ready to go. Gearbox nearly there, just needs detailing . Should come together pretty quick now I have a bit of time spare. Might keep yippy of my back for a bit :lol:

Know the feeling mate,

I've come so close to getting mine on the road.
all I need to do is:

fit pop out
fit 2 relays
fit dizzy and see if she runs again (no spark)
weld battery tray

All I seem to have done this year is work away so no ime on the camper :-(

still I have tomorrow off and i'll be spending it doing camper stuff :-)
