I have been researching dynamat and looking for alternatives. One thing I read, is that completely covering every square inch of the car promotes mildew and doesn't help the sound deadening effect any more than having patches in the middle of panels roof or whatever? It is the centre of panels that causes the noise amplification, so I reckon, where you see rootes has put the deadening, like in behind the elbow bins next to the back seat.... put it there a bit bigger than they used... where the black gunk is in the footwells etc.... but prolly a good idea to use the 10mm stuff behind the back seat (the whole back seat area and back shelf) and yes, painted black should look better.

The dynamat ceiling lining is like 10mm thick, they have 6mm and 2mm for other areas... I will prolly get the black chinese stuff because I am a cheap rrr's :lol: If it doesn't work, I will double up... there is a bulk pack with heapsof metres of the chinese one :)

No one will notice the badge, but they might see the front strips are upside down? :wink:

Stripped the steering rack for inspection and fitting new rubber boots. It all looked perfect. Filled it with Land Rover hub grease. Fitted adjustable track rods on both sides, and Fiesta track rod ends.
I've looked on the dvla site for the car a couple of times, and never found it listed. I had assumed it was because the car has been off the road for so long(last taxed 1983). I only noticed that it was listed as a Hillman when I scanned the old tax discs. I'm not sure how much grief that's going to cause, to get sorted out.

The rack is refitted now, along with the front brakes and brake pipes. A new servo is fitted.
I think the tank was modified by Hartwell so that the wider rims would still fit in the spare wheel well.

Finally finished - or at least, finished enough to pass an MOT test and be reasonably usable.
