Nice work Glen, not really noticeable at all. While accelerating the person in the passenger seat will not be able to look down at the clock anyways!

Yes, they are close to the bodywork; no, not touching

Hey Glen, I got some bad news for you... Your clock is broken... its always 30mins behind.


Ok, guilty. Terrible dad joke...
Thanks for the continued updates. Your build keeps me coming back.

I read somewhere recently that back in the '60s, similar Smiths clocks fitted to some Jaguars barely made it to the end of the 12 month warranty period.
It's the 'look', not the correct time, that I'm after. Call me shallow

Cheers!

edit: oh, I just got it.
Ain't that just so ridiculous. Nowhere else in the world does it happen

Those lights look great Glen, a very nice touch. How will you run the wires back, through the same grommet the has quick jack support I assume, correct?

For the parking lights / turn signal indicators, can you run clear bulbs? In California, we need to run amber bulbs when running the 'white' lens covers.

Greetings Tim.
Yes, correct, will most likely run the wires through the grommets….and again correct – amber bulbs within the lens covers.

Cheers,
Glen

"Cosmetic" change to the Tilton pedals to make them look less like Tilton pedals ...

I would say the Faux leather on the drivers view of the pedal arms.

How do the pedals feel when you pretend "heel & toe" them there in the garage?

You are indeed correct Glen, nicely done. That is a very clever fix and a fine detail that adds to the overall look of the car.
