No big updates...still waiting to get my plates & reg thanks to the kung flu restrictions at the RMV.

Started to go through the car and fixed the turn signals, ordered a few new switches, washer pump (electrical problems...go figure!) Steering feels nice & tight, but I still need to pull the wheels off to have a look at the brakes & stuff. The interior really isn't that bad aside from the driver's seat. But even if that was in good shape, I'd probably still be redoing them since the Mrs. wants black leather seats.

A few more pics:

What's the plans for it?
Get it on the road and enjoy it for the summer. I'm sure after that I'll be informed about what upgrades will be needed.

Victoria British and Moss are expensive. Back when I was into these things my business went almost exclusively to The Roadster Factory.

That actually doesn't seem bad at all compared to a lot of the ones I've seen in the $5k to $7.5 k range.
