Wires and exhaust don’t mix, will use an Ally channel to keep it tidy.

May wrap the exhaust when,,,, if it works all ok.

When the suspension drops, the springs wanted to come out of the spring tube, so they need a plate to keep them in situ.

Suspension static load, abandoned the top plate in the spring can as it collides with the ram oil feed.

First start in a longtime, didn’t go well as water in the bottom of the tank, due to ethanol maybe?
Anyway after numerous fiddling, lighter fuel in the carb, took out the glass in line filter was leaking well, not good with the lpg heater nearby, the car runs well just static and now ticks over nicely.
Pumped up the tyres, need to remove all the stuff from inside to give it a driveway test!!

You too? "A temporary storage", the car You don't use for a while..?

Too easy to put stuff inside on any car what is standing still for longer than a week. Where all these stuff comes, can't say for sure, but anyway, there is always some extra stuff after some period...
