Taking a break from working on the door locks and latches I decided to refit the dashboard surround which I haven't done since recovering it.
I then discovered that the heater demist pipes fouled against the body tub just below the windscreen. A quick check in the build manual confirmed that these should have been fixed at 45 degrees.
I had to remove them and refit correctly like this...

Then I was able to refit the surround and dashboard....

And just for future reference this is the surround's centre mounting fixing.

Once the steering column controls wiring is securred I can then test it all again

Until then, stay safe.........
