This is how it looked before:

Comments? I have painted the wheels on the left side gold and have left the other side black until I decide which colour I prefer.



GOLD looks great!!!!

Slowly getting bits removed in prep for engine and gearbox removal... radiator, exhaust, starter, alternator and tonight, the reverse light switch. That little switch was a bugger!

Should just unplug at the firewall. Two leads come out of the harness that runs 'east west' along the
firewall meet the two leads from the switch about 6 inches down from the harness.

Thanks Greg - I found that after getting the switch out, and will take advantage of it to mount the switch before reinstalling the gearbox and engine. I'd done a quick look hoping for a disconnect, but it had been tucked away out of sight.
