Managed to acquire an air line fitting that bolts into the compressor from work. Just need to get a few more bits to pipe it up properly.

The list of jobs is slowly getting smaller.

Yep she's getting there. I reckon a set of rock sliders would suit the car a treat.

Looking forward to seeing it in the flesh Jordi! If you need to give it a run out we can meet half way one weekend for a catch up.

Air line sorted. That should do to run a tyre inflator.

Had for a ride out today, went fine. Slightly sticky front brakes so i’ve pulled the calipers off, worked them in and out, greased the slides.

Fuel tank held up fine, shame the caps utter shit!

There isn’t enough pressure to keep it sealed an it all just seems to slosh out.

Made a fix and see how it works.
