Been generally pottering on with it over the last few weeks.

Fitted door locks this afternoon. Next major thing is a new fuel tank i think.

Fuel tanks are fairly important, I think...

Fairly important. It has some pin prick holes in the pick up pipe. Currently sorted with a liberal splodge of sealant.

Noticed it the other week when it wouldn't start and wasn't sucking fuel. Changed filters and fuel lines and eventually found these holes. Gonna get a price for a custom tank off a lad i know. Another thing i've been meaning to do for about 10yrs.

From experience, most sealants are broken down very effectively by petrol...

Added another release spring to the x-eng as it wasn't releasing properly. Got some more springs to swap the originals on the slider pins too.

Swapped the Samurai indicators (that didn't fit right) for SJ indicators.

Went to change the needle and spring in the SU at the weekend. Was 100% sure i had the needle and spring as i'd bought them ages ago.

Dug them out and the needle code just didn't seem right. Double checked it against the SU info on here.

Bought them so long ago i still had a 1.3 in, they are for a 1.3! Do'h!

Still, they will do for the other Zuk when i start work on that.

Ordered the correct needle and spring today. When i fitted the SU years ago it started and ran, i have no idea how it's setup so will fit these and see if it improves it.

Wheel bearings stripped, greased and retightened. Ordered a spare today too just to have, just incase.
