    Another Test drive a bit further went well.
    Brakes need more bleeding.
    After 3 pumps it stops nice and straight.
    So just some air trapped in odd places.
    Fitted rear seats.
    Time to get finished, the next one awaits.

    Looks awesome!

    BTW, a tip from many years ago , bleeding my Series 2 brakes was to pick up the front wheels. Lift the front with a garage jack to help release the air in the master cylinder

    Adjust the shoes until they lock up the drum.

    Then you bleed 'em.

    Isn't it funny how the sometimes blindingly obvious completely passes you by, until someone actually states it?

    The Brake problem.
    It was the setting on the pedal/master cylinder.
    It acted as if i had air in the lines. Not air just a setting on the shaft

    Fitted all the seats, just need leather to make tie down straps for the seats.

    She seems to have settled down now. No more fighting, i hope.
