Thanks for the info on dropping the subframe a little to get the right hand mount in Dave. You forgot the bit about needing very strong narrow fingers about 8" long!! My old classic Mini had more room in the engine bay!!!
Also making up a couple of pairs of seat raising brackets. Bought some 20mmx50mm aluminium bar as I don't think the idea of packing washers under the front of the seat a very good idea. Dimensions will be 20mm for height & about 75 mm long with a 3.2 degree angle, will probably have to make some M8 sleeve nuts to suit.
Apart from that a little tidying up on the paintwork in a few places. Looking forward to getting the beasty out on the road again, whenever that will be??

Mounts are a pain but glad the subframe trick helped
