Welcome G -- this is a site that doesn't see much traffic except for a few of us who like the idea of a small venue.

Sorry for the crappy pics my cell sucks and i have misplaced my "camera"

The first pic is the temporary kitchen we had been using for 15+ years.

the second is the cabinet carcasses in, and the third is with the sink in and part of the counter on.

There will be cabinets off to the right and counter over them.

I worked on the kitchen, got it to a point and now i am just bitching on Facebook about the craptastic weather we are having. drove my vette to work one day so far.

Been a busy week because I wanted to get these splash panels installed, but I also needed to fix my TIG welder pulse unit because I need that welder this weekend. Thankfully the parts arrived and I'm a happy camper with the welder. The splash shields are a pain to install and fit, but after two days the LH side is in and correctly aligned with the frame and the sills.





It took three evenings installing the last brake fluid reservoir lines and this panel -- what a chore.

The hoses are a nightmare, but that's how they came in the original Series II -- stuffed to the gills if you have AC, Power Brakes, and Power Steering. Incredible that they managed to engineer all that "stuff" into the LH side of the car.



The rail brackets that hold all these splash panels are a great idea from an engineering standpoint, but a nightmare for a mechanic. I had to make a new upper support on the splash panel because the OEM just would not fit.



I'm holding off on installing the rubber splash seal on the crown of these panels because I want to install the hood (bonnet) first and then fit the seals. I kept the old torn seals for a pattern because the new material comes in a bulk roll.





I'm almost done with my small items and hopefully by the end of the month I can transfer the car to the local British import specialist to double check the wiring and do the alignment and electronic ignition install. Fingers crossed --

 :0002-1239:  :toilet16: Sorry about that, it was totally my fault  :frustrated: .

This board started as part of an HostGator account. With TaG being a subdomain of the main account. I moved each of the subdomains to their own account on cpanel a few days ago. Being the dummy I am, I forgot to check the attachment paths.

So the message was right. You couldn't post to the attachment folder since it was pointing to the old location where it no longer existed. :frustrated:
