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.
