Making a new wiring loom & more

A few weeks into the GTE rebuild and Progress had been made making a new front loom, dash loom and connections to the fusebox. The rear loom was reused fro the time being. We have also fitted a new stainless exhaust system laid the front brake pipe sections & copper clutch pipe, repaired the front nose supports, painted and refitted them. Also we rebushed the steering column fitted a steering lock with ignition as well as fitting the dash.

I took a few photos on the way, nothing spectacular but they help to show the progress.
