    '66 Anglia - Canada

    Here's my car when I first got it, stripped out the interior and pulled the motor.












    Battery rusted out the tray so I cut that out and had to also repair the front crossmember which was extremely rusted as well as the frame rail and the roll bar mount.














    Fixed the front hole where the bumper slots through, passenger side door was extremely rotten.














    Picked up a 1600 X-Flow from Vancouver Island






    Door back on, got the lines all sorted. Chrome trim not going back on so the moulding clips are all gone.







    Picked up Cortina GT brake calipers, hubs and rotors, also have MK2 Cortina Struts. Picked up a pair of 13x7s locally as well.







    Boot Lid all cleaned up. Have to replace some rotten parts on the inside.







    Front coming along.





    Just got my seats recovered and springs fixed.

    Sanded down, painted again. As perfect as I'll be able to get it this time. A few passes of the 2000 grit takes out any dust and the most minimal orange peel.. Polishes up nicely.

    Suspension going back in.

    Got a few things on order. Motor going in on Friday.










    Got to the front brakes, Got Copper/Nickle pipe from Burton Power. Never done brake lines before, but this still is super easy to work with, bends nicely, don't need to have the tool clamped into a vice to flare the ends, just do it right at the car. Forgot to slip the fitting on once or twice, left a little extra each time just incase anything needs to be re-done.








    Proportioning valve in, started running to rear.

    Got the proper seals for the top half of the doors now.. they close.

    Replaced both 1/4 Window Seals. What a bitch.

    Brakes are done, all bled.

    Replaced the clips that hold the felt in the window.

    Started running aftermarket 12 circuit wiring harness.

    Dave dropped me off a steering wheel.

    Glass is back in both doors, they are pretty much done.

    Full interior kit from Aldridge arrived a few weeks ago, looks great. Still need headlining to go in, then will start putting glass back in.





    Shaved the valve cover, painted it. New gasket..

    Degreased and painted the gearbox. Steering is in now, The electrical is coming along.. Still wiring up the dash and rear lights and indicators.

    Headliner went in today, took the man about 1.5 Hours. Not bad!











    Interior will be going in next weekend.











    Trumpets on, new clutch installed, gearbox is in.. wow its heavy.

    Fabbed up an axle mount and body bracket for my panhard bar today, got the shocks welded in fully both sides now as well.

    Did notice I will have to do something with my handbrake bar now.. Possibly just drill a hole through the mount or just bend up a new rod to go around the axle mount..

    Well done, great inspiration to get me out into the garage, instead of browsing on this time sucking machine.
