    Awaiting a selection of pipe clips arriving so that I can finish off the various items on the underside; meanwhile pulling new wiring looms through and connecting a few things up. The rear quarter badges with their new inserts were in the same box as the rear lights.... I couldn't resist fitting them

        Very interesting to follow your progress, looks great !
        Can I ask which bulkhead soundproofing you used as there were debates on suitability of the modern materials equivalent used by suppliers?

          I bought new bulkhead soundproofing, for both engine bay and footwells from Robsport. I guess I'm with those people who say that if there's a fire going on under the bonnet there is more to be concerned about than whether the soundproofing will burn. ?

            ^^

            Agreed. Can't be any worse than a 40+ year old, oil soaked original which, even if it were fire resistant back in the day, almost certainly won't be now.

            Looking terrific BTW

                I sent an email to James Paddock on the 4th. June last year regarding soundproofing concerns. They acknowledged receipt but I am still awaiting a reply. As regards material, unless you want concours standard, then there are much better heatproof and soundproof materials on the market than 70's standard. Copy of email from Paddocks below

                Hello John,
                Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
                I do not know where Rimmer buys their bulkhead pad, so am unable to confirm whether we use the same suppliers.
                We have already contacted our supplier and raised this with them. They were not already aware of it, but are going to investigate.
                I will let you know when I have some information to share with you.
                Regards, Paul.

                PS Your call is looking stunning Davo
                John

                    Got the pipes clipped up through the tunnel, prop shaft in and exhaust fitted. Next thing will be fitting dizzy and carbs plus other under-bonnet stuff, along with finishing wiring in there, then on to fitting wiper rack and wheelboxes, heater, fascia and dash, working towards first start-up.

                    One casualty was the single tailpipe hook, whose attachment looked marginal at the outset, and caved in under my efforts to fit the rubber hanger over it. Will need to be welded back in, but it looks to me like a bit of reinforcing around where it is fixed would be in order - does anybody have an opinion on this?

                      Fit it with a nut and bolt - makes removal of exhaust easier if you ever need to.
                      I only do what the voices in my wifes head tell me to do!

                        Thanks - I hadn't thought of that, but now looking at the situation I think the suggestion has merit. Have you (or somebody else) done this?

                                Fitted the radiator and also the fan cowl, which I understand is standard on Australian spec. cars.
