Looks great !

If V registration is 1979, then this car is now historic tax and needs no MOT... so you can drive it on the road as you like .. Happy Days!

unfortunatly according to the gov website it does need mot and tax as it was built after jan 1979.
But that doesnt matter as it still has the v5 from 1979 and if you apply for a new one they will come and inspect the vechicle to see if its a ringer,but if you get it mot,d first they look at that as being inspected so will supply a new v5

It looks very nice. Mine's a V-reg first registered in 1980 so I'll have to MoT and tax it.

What's that sticking out of the bonnet? It should only need a small bump for a single SU. The original bonnet was designed for twin carbs.

If you want to make a new front panel, the inside of a Mini windscreen makes a good mould.

next job,the saggy headliner.
there was two options on this
1 tear back the headliner from the windscreen,door,rear window pillars
2 cut the headliner straight down the middle
due to the fact it was fitted so well around the pillars and shaped and stuck down really well i didnt wont to do this as and taking the headliner totaly of ones side and getting it stuck back up on my own i would never have got it right.
so option two it was,this allowed me to get access to the rear hinge area aswell.
luckily the seam were i cut in the middle went back really well
