Underside is looking really good.
I have not tackled the trans tunnel on mine because I wasn't confident about how to remove and refit the prop. Is it as easy as marking up the position and removing either end with the 4 bolts?

That’s lovely. Well done you. Banded TR7 wheels? Any clearance issues?

All the best, Bish.

Yes much clearance issues! But have rolled the arches so less of an issue now

Worth the effort though! They look great. I’m thinking of doing something similar, but with some formula Ford type wheels, for a winter set as an alternative to the sprint alloys. Need to get the car actually on the road first though......

Mines been off the road since September as the exhaust fell off in Kent on the way to the OhSoRetro show. Need to have one made as its got a paddock show pass for Players Classic at Goodwood this year

Looks lovely. The cream wheels suit it nicely.
