Fixed the captive nuts for the headlight covers.

Got the clutch linkage set up but the pedal seems to sit high. I think the stop is bent.

And checked air filter clearance to the bonnet. About 1” to spare

Beautiful, really suits the blue. I think I’d be having kittens fitting that air filter though, bet you were relieved when the bonnet closed!
1 inch, it must have looked tight with the bonnet up! :eek:

I was actually surprised there wasn’t more room. I expected to be able to get a 2” spacer between the manifold and carb that’s supposed to improve mid range torque.

There’s quite a bonnet bulge.

shame to stick them on and ruin that lovely front end look on yours, they don't look too bad on that liveried car
I think they might look different with the lights in. The plexi might also be refracting the light as it’s sunny outside and dark in the garage.84286
