More sanding. Bogging.. blocking. I want to finish this and then have a break from the bodywork and start trimming these engine mounts. Picked up engine crane the other day ready for it.

Decided to tackle the engine mounts to have a break from sanding. It needed doing before paint anyway as i scratched the firewall getting motor in.

Carb apprantly works fine but was a problem with cold start. With a little help identified carb has automatic mechanical choke which is a good idea to fuck it off and replace with an electric converison kit or one out of a later model if anyone knows thatll fit?

Mines been plugged off. Guess i could also just hook it up n see if it works
