Stunning result from the body shop, wow. I hope to see your Aceca in the UK when it is finished.

BTW - Goodwood Revival tickets went on sale this morning. My tickets are purchased. Goodwood are offering a roll over to 2022 in case the event cannot proceed.

This picture shows the original overrider and the new one.

The original overrider has a plate to hook in the mounting bolt, the new overrider has it already integrated. That would have been nice if the bolt wouldn't be too short.

I guess, using have of the normal nut is not really enough to fix the overrider. My idea is to modify a union nut so it goes through the overrider brackets in order to use a much longer way of the mounting bolt thread.

And it works ...

It's such a long time ago that I disassembled the bumper that I forgot how to mount them. The override brackets must be inside the overriders. And a spacer sleeve is needed between the overrider and the bracket. I welded the spacer to the bracket.

Now, the position of the bumpers looks much better.








I installed the battery tray

and made new clutch- and brake lines.














Also the mounting bracket for the steering column in conjunction with the accelator padel was installed.

Working on the heater ducts in the foot box



A new air duct for the foot box from an MG A. It's much bigger than the original one.

and also for the other side (not original but in summer it will be nice)


I constructed rubber seal for all of these parts in order to equalize the rough surface of the GRP foot box. You can see it. It is the clear line between the footbox and the air duct (same for the heater ducts).

Installing the filter king

The pedalbox is connected to the brake lines

Uh, it came from outer space
