Looks really nice! Did you repaint the valve covers separate from the valve cover bolts or all together in one go?

Everything got painted the same time. Valve covers(Rocker covers) were bolted on.

You cant see the air filter cover in the picture. Thats the one thing i am really inpressed with. Will post more pics when theres progress. Its having welding done first. I am hoping next week for the engine install

The engine going back in has been on hold. There was rust issues in the rear floor and boot drop off which turned out worse than anticipated. Welding is done to a very high standard. The areas have been primed and you would not know a welder has been there.
Next the wheel arches will be stripped to bare metal and re-sprayed. That should take place in the next week. Once thats done the engine will slot back in to its home. I reckon the engine will be fitted by the end of August.
Parts have been arriving in a steady flow from members here on the site and through Ebay and the global shipping program. Next on the list will be a chassis bolt kit & body bolt kit from AMK. The chassis bolt kit will go in in September

Thanx for the update. Any progress is good progress.  Keep us posted when you can.  Just as a note to help, there should be a heat shield on the passenger side exhaust manifold for the hot air intake on the air cleaner.  These are difficult to find as either they rusted away or were removed by someone attempting to change the plugs. Let me tell you they really do complicate a simple plug change.  I lucked out on the engine I located and it still had its original.  Just meant as a helpful note in case you want to start your search.

I would buy some Boeshield for that carb. It will help preserve it. The rattle can Boeshield does not last buy the way.
