Had to empty out the boxes in the attic, the boxes in the shed and ....lots of other boxes to find these.. (they were no good from the old sub-frame, and they were all the smaller dia ones anyway)

So happy today

No pictures .. but was working .. wanted to finish rear sub frame, petrol tank, rear windscreen and the stuff at the back...  

-Not sure whether to open up rear brake pressure regulator valve to see if it looks okay... or leave it until I see that it is broken and the rear wheels lock up under hard braking.. I'm replacing all the brake pipes so it will be easy to maintain the valve later.

-Not sure if I should get B&Q silicone bathroom sealant and seal the tank... maybe just before the carpets go down. I will seal from underneath.

-Thinking about how to route rear to front fuel pipe and brake pipe, to stay away from exhaust. Probably go high, to avoid scraping it on road..

-Couldn't finish fitting fuel tank: fuel pipe that exits tank had an (old-style) square-ended brass male fitting, seating on a tapered female seating on tank. It didn't tighten up... so got to buy a new petrol pipe with newer fitting.  

-Couldn't finish fitting rear hand brakes on sub frame as missing one split pin ..0.05 from Mini Spares.

-Finally last two snap hook clips arrived for seat belt, then I was told we should get new harnesses.. eek ! At least new harnesses won't have wrong sized (75 mm) clips.
