Sow progress but limited spare time . Thanks Jim for best ways to do cam cover gaskets :)
Dam alternator belt ordered was wrong size ( 850mm ) was 15mm to small ! This is the size here on GTV data base !
In SA you just walk into spares shop , give the guy the belt and out he brings the matching one . Spare shops here first want you VIN !

Got the bonnet on this weekend but searching for some soft aluminium tri-fold rivets for the plastic bonnet stay . Normal rivets will pull straight through the fibreglass so just a process of finding the correct ones .
Pretty happy with the bonnet insulation as it looks very original to what these cars came with .
One might notice from the pic how the SA GTV 3.0 came out with a much thicker radiator but also slightly narrower by 20mm .
This difference in rads was a major factor in keeping these cars cool in the extremely hot race conditions they raced in SA. A few cars also had illegal fuel coolers in the front valence .
