    This build is the Bees Knees. Lot of great builds on the forum. You sir have moved very near the top.

    Wiring now finished
    managed to squeeze all the heater vent pipes in

    Next step is to fit the headliner, not looking forward to that

    The headliner requires planning, patience and two guys , it is also a lot easier with the glass out , and the correct glue and plenty of clips, to hold it in place, and no one around that is offended by plenty of swearing, haaaaa ha

    Ridetech Suspension kit comes with 8" Springs
    which makes the car too low with my tire and wheel selection, for our lack of maintained roads in the UK.
    So had some 9" springs made for the front.
    Also had made some of the delrin washers made, as they are prone to breaking
    when adjusting - used acetal homopolymer(which is the same as delrin) bought it in rod format.

    Interesting, I have the same problem with roads in my area, did Ridetech make the 9" springs for you?

    I had this company in the UK make them
    https://dfaulknersprings.com/
    Really helpful
    They were about ($120 US each)
    you could extend your front shock with this part from Ridetech
