Capped in the butt

The petrol cap I ordered about a month ago has finally arrived and it is a lovely piece of kit,  especially the keys:

One of the easiest installs I've done so far:


I decided to rivet up the dashboard edge of the scuttle and fit the rivnuts in the dashboard support panel:

I highly recommend this rivnut tool -  only £13 and is so much quicker than the stupid manual tool I bought before:

The other scuttle edge looks like it may need some trimming to get it to fit under the firewall (sorry,  difficult to explain) and I've ordered a ratchet strap which others have used to help with shaping the scuttle over the firewall.

I've been promised my gearbox by the weekend,  so fingers crossed.
