Looking very nice, still can’t decide if I prefer with or without the rear carrier though

I know what you mean George. The wheel does give it a certain look. I’ll probably get a puncture the first time out 🤣

Looks so much better - one thing for me, I would do the dash face in black to give a bit more contrast but only a personal thing - great work 😉

Yeah that had been a dilemma for a while Mark!! I’m thinking of doing something on it to give it a contrast but don’t want to take it all off again 🤣

Could you put some black or carbon vinyl on it as that would be relatively easy and could be removed?

I revamped my dash last year without removing the scuttle and removed all the switches, lights and gauges out and over laying with carbon fibre effect sheet.

Looks nice that Brandon. The front of mine is a plastic facia which I can unbolt and pop off, I think I’m just feeling lazy as I haven’t long put it all back together 🤣

I didn't want it down for long doing the change over so managed to get a template for the dash panel from a local Cat owner. Shaped the panel and cut all holes etc so done the swap over a week end. The material I used was easy to cut and file and can be shaped with a little heat as I needed to bend the lower bit for the radio. It is held on to the scuttle panel with concealed fixings. I managed to find some nice illuminated switches which are really neat, better that those old BL rocker ones !

Nice job you’ve done there mate 😊 And yeah you’re right about the old rocker switches they do look a bit dated!!!

Stupid I thing is, I made the facia from black PVC to start with 🤣

Would have been good to change to the Tiger logo gauges but ETB would not help in upgrading them. Told me they would not take the bezels off and replace them, bit odd as can not see how the later ones have their bezels attached differently !

You've already spotted my other post [tongue] I'm one stuck ball joint, a wheel alignment and a rubber spacer (which I'll need to fabricate) away from her being ready.  I'm a bit behind on the old blog but that's because I've been working away on the car.

The brakes took me ages to align (had to order some 2mm spacers and wait for them to come).  Done about 20 miles with the new pads and discs so quite a way before they are bedded in properly.  Feel good now though.

Bit nervous about the MOT in April but we'll see!

Great progress mate, you’re nearly there!! Don’t be nervous about the mot I’m sure it’ll fly through... I was worried about mine and it was fine. Anyhoo with your skills you’ll soon put any failure right soon enough 🤩👌

Trying to make the passenger side GRP seat fit after finding a pair at the right price on eBay. Getting there!

I probably do not need to remind you to put some U-Trim round the openings in the seat as the fibre glass will quickly cut through the seat harness in normal use and I wont mention what could happen in the event of a whoops moment.

Sad to say I haven’t been near it for months now, partly because of the weather but most.y because I’m frustrated by the clutch problem and I had a stinking cold for about 7 weeks but hoping to get back to it very soon
