Cheers matey, in which case i'll not refit the new rad yet and i'll wait for the frame to turn up before messing around.
That'll give me time to sort a few other bits n bobs out :

floor pans, frame now in situ on chassis rewelded new rear outriggers on, but cut them down anyway can't really see it being a problem with dvla, but if it is I will weld the ends back on, and see what they say then. put tank, and fuel pipe in as well.image.jpg

Default pedal position

mounted clutch and brake pedal. tried seat in position to check steering column, and driving position. well it's either cut my legs off, or chop the frame, and pedals to reposition, as the frame must have been made for a midget, back to the drawing board ........now where was that hacksaw????????image.jpg

Yep, very nice seats. They really fit the space available.

Perhaps your legs are supposed to go over the steering.

That setup's been used successfully before if you think back to the eighties. For best results you just need to be naked from the waist down...

the seats are a secondhand buy, but. in good condition. lok like fibreglass shells trimmed in vinyl, liked the look of them with having the low back.bought them as a buy it now, has soon as I saw them I hit the button, must have just dropped on them at the right time, actual bought them months ago.

Not sure if this photo from TlrTone's Miglia build will help.



I know he had a different set of pedals, so wanted a "non standard" set up.

Good luck, Paul.

Default pedals sorted

decided to move the pedal mounts, so added 5 and 1/2 inch in to frame, and also shortened pedals by 1 inch pedals now in a more comfortable position, and
I have plenty of seat adjustment on the dropped floor pan. also added frame work at rear to attach bulkhead, and make storage space, behind seatsimage.jpg
