    Mid front strip down, getting rid of the cracked front grill, rusty fittings and rusty bowls. Also found one wire earthed to the chassis by strapping it on using electrical tape. :confused:

    I sorted out the front lighting yesterday. Got rid of the NAS style LED lights and fitted the regular size smoked Wipac ones, Truck-lite LED phase 7 headlights fitted with Wipac bowls and all connected with AMP connectors. I also treated it all to some headlight surrounds and a new grill. 4FF962CE-CB3A-467D-B71E-0D80DF1C6DEB.jpeg

    Looks good. Are you doing a full restoration? Or just a rolling one and use at the same time?

    Thanks!
    I’m planning on currently doing a rolling resto to keep it going and do bits and pieces but then eventually do a full galv rebuild.

    Morning!
    I’m busy sorting out the rear lights and came across a right birds nest behind the driver side stop/tail light. All the wires in the right of the picture all seem obsolete, many bare ended and quite a few joiners. Has anyone got any ideas of what they are/were for? 6D71656F-9285-4EF1-8BE3-5EBDCEE686A1.jpeg

    I’ve got mine finished now, tidied the mess up and got all lights running on proper connectors so it’s all plug and play. Here’s the before and after....

    So it’s been a while but I finally decided to get around to doing a few bits. I thought I’d start to remove some rust and also stop advertising britpart.

    Before...

    I’ve also started to upgrade the electrics a little after tracing an unreliable drivers dipped beam to a dodgy fuse terminal connection (glass fuses).

    I’ve purchased three 8 way blade fuse holders from vehicle wiring products along with a few other bits and pieces.

    And mounted them after a bit of cutting and filing. I decided to mount them horizontally so that I don’t run the risk of the wires being too short when I cut them off the old fuse box. There is going to be lots of room for extra bits of kit down the line. The fuse in the box is only temporary and was used to make sure that the cover still fits.

    Nice dog and good work! Good to see you back on it. Make sure any wiring passing through body like that has grommets too mate
