Looking good Michael! I've always thought a RHD Notchback would be awesome to have.

Managed to get the hard brake lines I was chasing 8)
Few odd jobs left to do under here (clean back the surface rust on the steering column, replace a few rubbers, etc.) but pretty happy with the recent progress

The ol' man gave me a hand to get the gearbox back in today. Happy with progress at the moment, also got the shift rod back in with a new bush and coupling. Bolted the shocks on, connected the handbrake cables, spring plates with new bushes, etc.

Looking good!
Loosen up those axle boots and turn them so the seams face forward.

Had the drums machined on Tuesday and painted them with brake paint. Put the drums back on and got the notch back on the ground tonight. Still have to tension the axle nuts and check over a few things but almost ready to move onto the next step

Almost 12 months since the last update ](*,) been too busy trying to sort out issues with the Honey Brown notch.. all sorted now so back onto this project..

Was never really 100% happy with having 4 stud on this notch, so I've been collecting parts and made a start on putting it back to wide 5 over the weekend.

Tried to track down a pair of OG rear drums but ended up going with a pair of new ones. Got the rear all sorted and back on the ground. Hopefully over the Easter weekend I will have the front all finished off...
