Starting assembly now. Today I did a trial fit of the engine and found problems. As you can see the engine bay has brake lines that will interfere with the air filters. Also the one running down the middle hits the clutch release lever. It's really tight in there. There were two fuel lines going up the sides of the engine bay and the first try I couldn't get the engine in. After removing those and the starter motor it went in fairly easy. All three brake lines will have to be re-routed.

Finally I have the inside and bottom of the tub painted. The sides, bonnet and boot will be a bright red but I'll do that after assembly.
