|37ford4dr||garages are so sweet.....the TDs all had pressed steel wheels and the TF had wires wheels so you have to go to TF hubs etc and retro fit the wires onto the TDs. since i already have the wires on the MGA i am ok with no tire tubes and pressed wheels|

|Loose Ctrl||Nice new old ride. Good work on those joists. I'm building a 12x16 workshop for my motorcycles. I bought out my friend's motorcycle shop, so I'll be working out of it temporarily. I plan to build a 30x40 garage, after we get out house set up next year.|

|Arns85GT||Real nice looking TD. Congratulations. Y'a know I always liked the wire spokes on the TC a little more though. Maybe a working set of wheels with originals stored?|

well Tom of TeamEvil fame has come through for me and I now have a fascia trim piece for my rear parcel shelf. this is the last piece interior trim i needed. thanks Tom

another 20 minutes and 4 miles, its tough breaking in a car when you live in an urban area.....so far 1 hour and 14 miles.
so we have the goldilocks seats......one just right for me
and then the one for Junior who is 5 10' to 5'11, the one from the bomber seat with half the padding removed
and then one for little Joe 6' 3"+, just 2" of foam between the rails
we are still not sure his feet can fit between the pedals...

some guys can see the web site some cant not sure why.
the speedometer cable is in and to get it to route the way I like it has some extra cable up by the brake master cylinder,
the parking light was as i expected, the brown base in side the light had to be coaxed out and rotated 180*...no biggie.
and i set the toe to 0 . and if your wondering in the fight of bumper extensions vs a forehead the bumper extensions win.....
and my son and i went for a ride

well todays the day!!!!!!
added gas, disconnect the battery and put a power supply on the terminals and tested the electrical and every thing works. the front left parking light has the terminal studs reversed so the parking light is bright. i think i just have to take the bulb out and spin the brown terminal base plate around. the wires are connected properly.
click on the picture for the video
drove around for 20 minutes. i dont have door latches so the doors are just bungie corded closed on the interior door pulls

lets wrap up the electric
fish wires through
there is grommet on the loom where it goes through the body
use a gasket punch to make the holes
use the power supply to make sure the wires are hooked up correctly
