As promised.
Part 1 of 3.
Little bits - Engine bay
Pics here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/LEXnbnQson1yXKBJ6
Pic 1  and 2 is the engine with no air filter. Original got lost somewhere in the transport
So I bought 2 6" Filters and cut them. A little silver solder and I now have 1 Chromey air filter. Pics 3,4 and 5.
Pic 6 is just the front boot a little cleaner. All major electrical bits are here. The front bonnet is finally on.
Pic 7 is the radiator hosing in place. A little too early however.
After putting about 5 litres in I found 4.5 litres on the floor.
Off to my Natrad guy. Radiator was toast. Anyway new core and custom top. Twice as many cooling channels. I hope to fit that tomorrow.
8 and 9 with my engine cover fitted are the soft lift and stay for the cover. Needs paint still

Part 2 little bits.
Ears, Dash, Fuel
Pictures here https://photos.app.goo.gl/yavKBmwQ9YTSu64u8
Pic 1 is the fuel cap fitted. What you cant see is all new hosing back to the tank for fuel and breathing. New fuel pump fitted and plumbed up to carbies.
Eureka seem to have lots of blind bolts. This car had a lot of them as pop rivets. Not a good idea.
Pic 2 At bunnings you can get this nail strip for about $5.
Pic 3 is a small torch or if you're impatient you can use a large one for silver solder.
Pic 4 and 5 are using the strip to solder the bolts in place.
Pic 6 and 7 are strip bolts going into the dash cover
8 probably wasn't needed but its the instruments waiting patiently to be covered.
9 10 and 11 are the ears waiting for the same treatment.
I'm still in 2 minds about fitting mesh to the front of the ears. I don't mind the look without mesh.
This may not be the best way of doing these attachments but its the best I could think of.
I didn't want to glue bolts in place as I have taken enough old cars apart to know glue doesn't hold forever.
Then the only spanner that works is the one that puts a new disc on your angle grinder.
Pic 12 is the original decal which I was able to preserve although I'm not using the key switch.
The door pods had large holes in them for heating ducting. I never liked this so I'm not running heating to them but I did want cooling.
Quick answer was server cooling fans with PWM controllers for speed control. Pics 13 and 14.
They are surprisingly good and not very noisy.

Part 3 little bits.
Roof fit.
Pics here https://photos.app.goo.gl/3xa8CsdCg3Xk9ujT9
Pics 1 and 2 I think I put up before. The lifters fitted and ready as well as the captive bolt from the Linaks.
Pics 3 and 4 are the roof going on. No pics of it actually being lifted into place as I don't have a third arm for selfies.
Pics 5 and 6 are the fun job of threading the power cables through the roof for the wipers.
I found the inspection camera was a cool way of doing this. Still fiddly though.
Pic 7 Sitting on the roof where it bolts to the arms is my PWM control for wiper speed. I'm only using the high current winding on the wiper motor and controlling speed with this module.
Pic 8 is another shot of the bonnet fitted at last.
Pic 9. You all know that foam people who arrange flowers (not sexist) use. It is very cool as it doesn't spring back after being crushed.
Perfect for measuring roof gap before buying rubber.
So 10, 11 and 12 are this foam applied to the roof area to see what the closed gaps will look like.
Pic 13 or Diagram 13 is the measurements in mm of gap. Now to go to my rubber store if you know what I mean.
It was pointed out to me that Reeks are not bi-symmetrical and I should do this for the entire roof area. Thanks!!!!
