I believe i have all the loom, but considering the front & rear lights are about the only thing original im guessing it wont help much... :P

In theory, you should be able to just remove any parts of the loom that you don't want, cars to old to have everything feeding to a computer, the old engine management should be a separate wiring section.

Thanks Rodger.

A bit more progress today, the gap at the back of the fuel cell is now filled, and the Diff Oil cooler is mounted.
Will complate the hoses tomorrow and then look for the next task.
Will try and get the filler flange cut so it can get welded and then i can finish the assembly.
Its not perfect, but looks good from a distance :P.

The rear hatch and new plastic window are off getting bonded together... hopefully later next week it will be back.

Fire extinguisher & Diff oil cooler mounted.
