Love the GT grill and the mirrors!

Mine has a remote box, in response to the above comment of if yours should... However, my first 4 door on an L reg had a rod box....?

Also, I have the early style seats in, so I'm wondering if its a late registered one?

passed its mot on Friday, had treated it to some new discs and pads and some rear shoes, and two n/s/r wheel bearings, until I just gave up and bought a secondhand drum and bearing combo - turned out the original drum was worn and the new bearing was moving around in the hole.

mot station advised that there was 'play in rear bearing' on the test, er no, that will be the wheel nuts coming loose...... :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:

its getting an electric windscreen squizzer fitted tonight, I'm sick of the pathetic 'mouse piss' manual setup that's fitted

Congratulations on the MOT!
I know what you mean about the manual windscreen washer pump. Nice period thing, but when my 1100 was used daily come rain or shine, i soon got tired of that. So i inserted a "stealth" electric pump at the bottom of the washer bottle, and grafted the steering column stalks complete with their cowling out of a late Mini. That gave me fingertip control of wipers and washers, while a period Lucas delay relay offered the luxury of interminent wipe!
A few years later i got bored of that and started thinking that the Mini column stalks and cowling didn't look right in the 1100 interior, so managed to squeeze a set of early Range Rover column stalks inside the standard 1100 steering cowling. Of course this wasn't quite straightforward because a Range Rover has a much thicker steering column in comparison with the 1100, but at least the result is fully functional and looks period as well.
I still have more plans about this: To combine 2 standard Mk2/3 1100 column switches (one converted for windscreen wash/wipe control), but the problem is that these days i rarely find the time to get bored.
