Well I made some progress today, I got the dash fascia back in and working and stripped the carb down ready for a rebuild as the car still won't run properly. 

 

I also ran into a problem with the headlights :( It's almost like this car doesn't want to be back on the road, it's fighting me at every stage :(

Oh, a quick question, what is the best product / method to clean  the washer bottle? I'm sure there is a way to get the plastic looking white again or did I imagine it?

 

Cheers

I cleaned my washer bottle with Bleach and hot water. Let it stand a while and it looked good.

Sterident tablets are good for cleaning these type containers.

Well, I've got a bit of motivation back this week so I thought I'd revisit the rear suspension.

 

Long term I'm going to have to get the arches rolled but for now I've added some extra ride height using poly spacers.
