    Your interior looks to be in good shape, with the chassis work done how far are you from getting on the road?

    Sounds like a nice short to-do list

    Do you have a hydraulic pump already or do you need to source one?

    My car originally had a Cadillac convertible roof pump, which was typical of early Nova installations, but really wasn't man enough to lift a fibreglass canopy. I subsequently sourced a used Smiths Mini Pack through the club, which is what I use today, but there are a number of modern pumps that work just as well today and are a lot quieter than "the noisemaker"!

    Tried to adapt an Audi roof pump but not strong enough. Had info about a pump from the club will sort after new year.

    Looks like the shell was lime green gel coat originally.

    Your LED headlights look very cool, I hope that they are E-marked.
