    Got two UK suppliers quoting for the service items needed.
    Browsing some U.S. Suppliers now for correct trim pieces. Ouch some of it is expensive.
    Could do with someone bringing a container over and we ship within the U.S. To the container.

    Went out and played with vacuum hoses. Corrected incorrect routing and sorted correct use of ported and manifold vacuum.
    Found massive vacuum leak, adjusted idle.
    More tuning once it's cold again. Kind of one try a day until it's right.
    Service kit arrived (except bottom hose) so at least one day over the weekend will be spent fettling!

    Fine tuned the choke, started from cold on the button!
    Want to further test the front and rear vacuum breaks, but need another cold start.
    Still waiting on the bottom radiator hose, but hope to get other service items done during evenings this week.
    The line on the correct mirror t-tops has come good, so will spend Saturday on the road collecting them as well as other bits.
    Also figured out how to set the clock on the 8 track - Thank you Graeme.

    I found a manufacturer that makes plastic dye in an aerosol for changing the colour of the interior trim.
    More importantly, they have exact matches for colours typically used by GM in the 70's.
    More importantly still, I found a UK distributor of it.
    So having cross referenced the original GM names against the product numbers I now have a couple of cans of the two colours (plus lacquer) used on the 10th Anniversary on their way to me.
    Minimum order is £35 though but still cheaper and easier than finding replacement interior trim pieces in the right colours.
