You'd want to make sure you have carpet in the hatch area before you open it up in the sun; reminds me of those solar heaters with all the mirrors! Instant burn!  looking good!

Finally ran it today. I forked out for a new battery and it had no problems starting!
This was the first time I have run it with the new oil and plugs etc. I do have a back fire issue though.
Not being familiar with non-efi can somebody direct me with what to look for. Is this a mixture issue? Or timing???

Oh, also picked up my new woodgrain gearknob, looks fantastic, just to let you know.

Most likely timing.  Back-firing through carby or exhaust.

Carby - timing (valve or ignition)

exhaust - timing or it could be very rich and igniting in the exhaust!  (Could also be one cylinder not firing at all, so mixture getting pumped into exhaust.

Tuning a car is so simple - just get everything spot on and it will be great!!

It's through the exhaust. It may be rich. Is the adjustment all the way up or down on the su's for leaning it out?

Cheers dude, I adjusted the carbs mixture nut up and am having more success. She is still popping under idle, do you think it will even out after a while?

Many thanks to Lurch for fixing up my tuning issues.
I am half way through replacing my heater lines.
Gave her a new layer of paint and assembled the old girl. Also got the vinyl wrap done. AND! Took some shitty photos

You're making great progress there.... Hope the roadworthy guy doesn't give you trouble about the gauges on the console. Might be an issue with the legs of a passenger in an accident.

Yeah, it's a perfect rise in the middle. Thanks for the comments guys. Yeah, I wanted to do something that's different to other sees I have seen. And if I get any troubles with the gauges, they come straight out. I made up a nice removable loom. :)

Drove the old girl down to the exhaust shop yesterday. Got the permit and stopped at the servo on the way to fill her up. I am sure there is a manifold leak as it is struggling under load. So the shop is going to do my exhaust and try and sort out anything else. Once I got the old girl up to speed on the hwy she ran ok. But it felt so good to be behind the wheel. There were a few looks on the way there, but the best bit was at the Servo. I parked behind an elderly gentleman who was filling up his MG. He had a good look, we gave each other a smile and a nod and were on our separate ways. I love the appreciation.

Looks Great mate...

As for the roadworthy I just put my 240 over at south Oakleigh (as per my mechanics recommendation)
and i popped the hood he checked the numbers and all good..
Didn't even look inside or check anything else just admired the car and said trumpets sound great on these..

Good luck with it all.

Got the call from the Exhaust shop. He through a new muffler in the middle to shut it up, a new pipe from there back to my rear muffler which he lowered a little to stop rattling on the body.

The car was struggling under load on the way down there (like it wanted to conk out) was fine when I got up to speed. I was hoping the new exhaust would fix it (back pressure issues) but apparently not, can anyone suggest what might be the cause?
