Posted some photos of my restored reek back on WA roads in a new incarnation

http://s480.photobucket.com/user/eurekacarclub/library/Member%20Rides/Leifs%20rebuild?sort=3&page=1

She uses a remote control circuit modified to include remote immobiliser, canopy lift control, limit switches, and will auto immobilise after a couple of minutes when the key is removed from the ignition.
I've kept the 2L dual carb type 1 engine but with new electronic points and she runs great and will get up and go when I want. The 4 into 2 exhaust is very loud  Evil so I'm thinking of changing the system a little to quieten it down.

Things to finish - the interior upholstery, side windows (including seals & pop-out mechanism for airflow), mounting heating and cooling fans with climate control electronics.

Speaking of side windows, I have some 3mm polycarb ready to go but is there a one piece seal rubber people use? I was going to go with a slotted channel along the top edge as you can see in the photo with a rubber seal attached to the bottom of the polycarb but this creates a problem at the two mounting points where the two separate seals meet. It doesnt look smooth and small gaps are left between seals.

Certainly looking smart!! I especially like the aerocatches on the bonnet. I was thinking of doing the exact same thing! So any close up photos of the instal would be great.   Wink Grin

My reek has electronic points, but began fouling plugs and misfiring above 2500rpm.
Tomorrow will do some fiddling and hit it with the timing light. I think I've figured it out, but damn it was a tricky one to solve.
