The immaculate engine bay. A guide perhaps for getting it correct in detail

I recently stumbled upon your thread on Performance Forums, awesome and inspirational. A heck of a lot of love, skill and hard work has gone into this car.

Post more photos, I could look at it all day!

Thanks Dave!
I've learnt a hell of a lot doing this one - but realistically it's not as huge a job as some of the resto's over on the BB – I barely had to touch the floorpans and the sills weren’t a total replacement on the worst side, and the driver’s side only needed the front section dealt with!
Here's some more pics:

Bare metal - chemically stripped it, rolled the epoxy on with a roller!

First time it had seen daylight in two years:

Great stuff, it's a credit to you, looking forward to the next installment.

I think I read that you're putting in a warmed up 1750, what mods have you done/plan to do and how's it coming along?

I think I might also have read that at one stage you were going down the Twinspark route...if so, what made you change your mind to the 1750?

Contemplated doing the TS when I popped the head gasket - but at the time I didn't have the cash to do it - so I went down the path of hotting up the 1750 - big valves, got stuck in with the die-grinder, custom cams...
Doing a dual circuit manual brake conversion that uses a single tandem master - should be a pretty good thing - certainly tidys the engine bay up a bunch.
2l LSD, 2L brakes at both ends, Knuckle risers, shortened Berlina rear springs, stock front - pretty basic, but an absolute riot to drive.

Sensational LaStreg! Your thread on Performance Forums has been an inspiration. The car looks awesome, amazing how much you've got done - to a very high standard - in such a short time. Having a deadline, seems to be key to not having a restoration languishing in the shed for years. Congrats on the wedding, by the way.

Would love to see more pics of the interior, engine bay, everything really...oooh and some video of you driving some twisties would be real nice too.

If you want to do another one let me know...I can have it on a truck tomorrow  :)

Gee that looks nice!

Well done on both counts, best wishes on many more years of happiness together - also on both fronts!!

Cheers.
