That support rod between the radiator and the engine bulkhead gave me some problem, the thin parts snapped at both ends, so mods had to be done.

The dash panel was a bitch to fit with all the leads attached, but we got there in the end.

Thanks a bunch for looking in folks.

Had a productive but frustrating day, the instructions on fitting the radiator cover and all the hood parts had you doing each stage one at a time, but in effect it had to be fitted all in one shot. The pins allowing the hood to be lifted on either side had to be slotted into a couple of retaining holes on the engine bulkhead and the radiator cover, only then could the whole lot be glued in place. But it is done and it all works.

More appointments tomorrow so not sure we'll get much done, but wheels are next. :D
As I thought, Monday was a bit of a right-off, had a long session with the ophthalmologist and have posterior capsular opacification behind the lens following cataract surgery in 2020, it's now blurring my vision but easy fixed with a laser but not till September. Such is life.

Like I said above, next job the wheels and here they are.
