Thanks.
You need to get an old Suzuki jimmy gearbox,as it has the same bolt pattern.cut the bellhousing off it at a certain place.
Then weld a alloy plate on to it that has the type 9 holes tapped onto it.then I need to get it all into her and gat a measurement for the prop shaft.
Well that's the idea ha ha
Should have her on the road soon.

Lovely -  your work looks great! Parcel shelfs are tricky to get. What I did was to get the edge supports from an HS (Ebay)  and then went to the scrappy and got a shelf from a Peugeot people carrier with built in speakers and cut it to suit. The fit isn't perfect but its totally functional. - Scotty
