    this thread came up in my email of activity here, and I proceeded to read the whole thread;
    Wow!
    That is some jaw-dropping work that you're doing Stephen!

    I love everything, except for the headlights, but am trusting that your final vision for the car will have the headlights more fitting into the car and that you'll convince me I'm wrong ;)

    So is your dash going to pretty much all be left/welded in place - I can't help but think that might make servicing the wiring/bulbs ect tough... but iirc from the MG's I've worked on that was common fare - so maybe you're coo with that.

    The nose modification is really neat!

    When I first saw the gaping hole in the firewall I was thinking, "oh my, what is he doing!?" - then it became apparent that you did that in part to do a RH drive conversion - which makes the build that much cooler!

    again - great work!!

    I look forward to updates!

    Appreciate the kind comments
    I don't really like that head lamp either - white circle seems out of place
    Head lamp bowls were converted to a land rover defender housing, so can use different led lamps
    quite like the one below.
    Truck-lite Phase 7" LED

    One of the nicest right hand drive firewalls I have ever seen, if you managed to find someone to bulk manufacture or press them, I reckon you could be on a winner and mass produce them for the european countries.

    I know I would buy two straight away
