mgb, as has been pointed out to me I've put the release bearing back in the wrong way around.

Now looks like this:

'20170806_163730_1'/

I'm just hoping this alone will solve the problem when I've got it back together!

That's got to be the answer.  Looks very good, I find myself quite envious.......

Well, after 7 years of ownership I'very fibally driven my car!

Sort of - reversed out of the garage and forward back in. No throttle cable at the minute, but it works 😊

Swapped the 52mm Burlen TB over from the mini today:

Unfortunately the bonnet won't close with the airbox fitted (neither with a K&N) so I'll need to find another solution:

Air_filter_housing

Bonnet_won_t_close

Then moved onto the remaining interior panels.  I covered the companion bins in foam and suede and made a template for the rear side panels:

Cardboard_template_in_plaxe

I used the remnants of the carpet I had to make the panels:

Drivers_side

Passenger_side

Only the wheel arches to cover now on the interior.

I also fitted the front panel.  I'm not too happy with the fit of this but it's not uncommon to have this protruding slightly, looking at other cars:
