Yikes. That looks toasty. How did the shed fare?

I managed to get a old spray booth for home and have finished the painting.

One of the biggest headaches I have had on this restoration is getting the handbrake to function using the original handle, with the overdrive unit in the way. I have achieved this by utilizing a CJ hand brake drum assembly a VW handbrake cable and some homemade adaptors. Now it works well .

At long last it is back on the road. There are still a few bits and pieces that need doing. It runs well and is fun to drive. The overdrive helps to reduce the operating RPM and was well worth the effort in putting it in and sorting out the hand brake to suit.
