Thanks for the kind comments  :)

More progress but no pics yet.

Firstly i refitted the battery tray and then Refitted the radiator and filled up with coolant (tested with my antifreeze tester and is good to -15). Ten i fitted the battery and fired her up. Runs nice and sweet   ;D with no load on it it wasnt quite getting hot enough to open the thermostat so today I refitted the prop shaft and refilled the gearbox and transfer box with oil. tomorrow I shall fire up the engine and then run through the gears with the transfer box in neutral to put a bit of load on the engine. I found this helps get it up to temperature when its stationary.

All the mechanical bits are done now to get her moving again, now its just bodywork and electrics :)

This will definitely be ready for the trip down to shell island in April  wlse
