GT Heater box and door locks
More work done today, in my travels over the years I had managed to pick up two door barrels with new keys for a HC, matching numbers and all that. So Today after some testing on an old rear boot lid first it was found that HC barrels fit into HB’s (it might be well known on the scene but wasn’t to me).
So now I have a four keys all able to fit either of the front doors. Superb stuff, more forward progress.
Test fitted the new prop-shaft as well, perfect fit, correct bolts on order, so when they arrive will correctly bolt it to the rear axle. I also need to clip up the two rear brake cables, going to use the rear seatbelt mount bolts and some P clips for that. Otherwise they will fall onto the prop-shaft at the rear of the car.
I was also going to fit the recon heater unit, but it doesnt fit, the end box has been made too big ! so it going to have to go back. See in the image below, them side by side on a level desk, the recon unit (on left) is about 6mm bigger and this is enough to stop it fitting correctly into the aperture in the car.
