Still making progress...
I got the pilot bushing in.
And I cut down a set of thin racing discs to 8.5" and made them fit the Hewland.
Still have to mount the rear brake calipers.
I'll use Fiat X1/9 calipers, they are light , compact, they work well, and I already own a set of rebuilt ones.

The exhaust manifold that came with the engine was a nice stainless steel piece.
But there was no way it was going to fit ( clearance problems with the LHS driveshaft )
So I started to make my own.
The basic shape of the primary pipes is done, but it still needs finish welding.
And I'll make the rest ( from the collector back ) once it is in the car.

I found some nice magnesium ex- formula Atlantic ( I think...) wheels.
Had them cracktested, and they are good to go.

So...
