Well done. Smile

You may well find your grille has ally slats where as the early ones were chrome plated.

Well Dad thinks he has worked out why it was running right.
Cleaned out the fuel tank and this was the result.

Little update. Car seems to be running fine now although Dad now reckons the Dynamo needs a new set of brushes!

The sunvisors were a bit... erm moldy!



Pound shop carpet foam stain remover, hot water and a boot polish brush!
Not perfect but definitely very happy with the result.
