Looks absolutely brilliant! That engine did need a good load of paint, would be good to see the engine painted too, to match how smart everything else looks!

Excellent car and your doing a really good job, well done. The bits from in the sump. At first I thought bushes from dynamo/starter motor, but no way for them to get in the sump, then thought gear teeth from starter ring gear, but again, no way for them to get in the sump. They look like gear teeth from something, and any bits of metal like that in the sump isnt good news. I would be tempted to remove the sump and investigate.
