Tranny will live again after a freshen up, no serious damage done.

In the meantime I've been working on the steering conversion, it was a bit agricultural to say the least:



Good thing the original LHD bits of the firewall were still intact, so the best option is to put things back as the factory intended:



Welded



Going for the clean look so I've deleted the blower motor and other heater control openings

Early start this morning to beat the heat and get it done before heading off for the Club Sprint series in the Beemer, managed to get some colour (or perhaps more correctly lack thereof) on the bay. Did end up with one run in a fairly conspicuous spot and a little bit of crap in the paint, but otherwise I think it went reasonably well for my first crack at 2 pack. With +40C temps forecast for the next couple of days it will get a good baking in the shed.

Looks good and I wouldn't worry too much about the paint run..
There were runs in factory paint too.

Been on a mission building wind chimes in the shed for the last couple of weekends:





The recently acquired sand blasting cabinet is a bit tedious, but it does get the job done in the end. Paint finish is brush applied KBS Rust Seal in satin black. Not 100% happy with the brush finish, comes up really well on the cast iron bits that have a bit of surface texture, but you can definitely see brush marks on the smoother bits like the brake backing plates and cross member, might have to bite the bullet and spray these bits next time. Not aiming for show or concourse finish on this one so it will have to do for now.

Inside of the firewall after much wire wheel work:



More KBS rust seal later:



I will need to come back later and tackle some rust issues in the rockers.
