And have been sorting out/modding the air filter housing so had got together this little lot:
103435

Which now looks like this:
103436

realise K&N sticker is upside down - doh!!
103437

103438

103440


Super happy with it, Still needs to be finished off (bulkhead section to be glued/siliconed, bulkhead to be cut and a few finishing touches) but pretty much ready to go back!

Also removed and cleaned the lower half as there was all sorts of wildlife and oily deposits inside so from this:
103441

to this:
103442

And during all this also found that the original inlet hose was starting to perish so good job I have a Pro silicon replacement

Nice work.
thanks
Nice one!

Think most of the intake hoses are like that now, changed mine for silicone too.
Thanks,
I suspect your right. Going on age most original rubber parts will be on their last legs and that’s before you add in any heat, oil, fuel etc.

I purchased a spare pair of front uprights and whilst in generally good condition they were a little skanky:

103465

103466

so got them all stripped down:
103467

103468

virtually every bolt and screw was rusted in position so not the easiest things to breakdown. Neither were the lower ball joints - they must of taken at least 20mins each to remove (involving much hammering) and really not a job I would have liked to have done on the car.
Now partially cleaned up with all the fixing surfaces de-rusted and looking significantly nicer:
103469

More to come on these soon....
