15th February

Things have slowed down a bit recently due to lack of time and funds at present. I have however refitted the bonnet which was straight forward. I was a bit wary the first time I shut it as I can't see any way of opening it if the bonnet release cable snaps or you have the adjustment wrong on the catches so that it won't open. It took a bit of adjusting on the passenger side as the bonnet wouldn't shut properly on that side when I got the car and the same was true when I refitted the bonnet. After a bit of careful adjustment it now seems OK.

I discovered that the clutch has become stuck on again, I freed it off before I put the engine back in, probably due to the damp weather we've had recently. When I can afford to get a new brake master cylinder I will have to try and free it off by driving the car and then applying the brakes with the clutch disengaged. I've now fitted all the lights at the front together with the bumpers with no problems. At present I have been unable to fit the new bonnet strap that I bought as it seems too small. When fitted the bonnet only opens about 2 inches.
