    That really is looking more like a car and less like an ASO (automobile shaped object)

    She’s up on Jack stands again but it does look funny in that picture.
    I do believe the wheels are straight-ish, but will have to drive her to know for sure.

    Yeah, without the fender it looks kind of like a T Bucket.

    Spent the last couple nights figuring out these complicated old locks and getting them close to fitting again.

    Didnít spend a lot of focus beyond getting the first stage to lock as it will all change once the door panels and trim are installed and there will be some shimming involved to get that second, critical bolt through lock engaged.
    Also added my door swing stops, which the car had lost years before my ownership.
    Now the doors have a proper hard stop at open position and will prevent them swinging all the way open and smashing into the rear fenders.

    And I have gotten these installed, and now need to figure linkage out, but looks ripping with the trumpets and screens.. I think so anyway!

    Front trumpet will need to be shaved down, I already know, for cowl clearance, but I really only wanted them to retain the inlet screens anyway so expected the modifications would be needed..

    May need to source or create a new pushrod for the throttle as these sit higher that the SUís did from a linkage perspective, or I mounted my new peddle centerline lower but regardless, itís another little challenge to figure out.
    Cheers gents.
