    It was a precarious side entry. But quite easy compared to a normal engine/trans swap:

    Had a 2A as a first car. Was a good old bus but was slow as a wet week and leaked when it rained. Never could wear a white shirt as the steering wheel used to leave marks on it when it was humid.

    Very nice. But finances dictate I must muck around with this one until it is of similar quality
    Haha, awesome.

    Update, after making a 20mm thick block for the L/H trans mount and buying some new bolts. The engine and trans are hopefully where they should stay.
    Next issue is getting the handbrake hooked up and re-making a link rod for it about 2" longer.

    Clearanced R/H trans mount so handbrake has a good movement. Found longer linkrod in box of bits. Now handbrake works.
    Firewall got a few wee patches done by a mate (he will drop it off later).
    Started with rear lighting wiring - still a bit to go.
    Fitted diesel label by the fuel filler. That's one tiny bit of the puzzle all finished.
    Also got the rear tub spectrometered, and it's a volvo blue as the closest match.

    P.s are the earlier photos not showing up for others? Or just me?

    The first pic on pg 1 is still visible to me but they have all vanished from pg 2 aside from your last post.

    Update: more firewall returned to metal and rust treated. Still need to rub it down, patch prime, and prepare for painting.
    In other news, I restored the rear badge to a better condition ( spray paint and sandpaper)
