This is the set up as it came off my KR, can anyone tell me what the cylinder shaped object with “HURST” written on it is? It has 2 wires coming out of it.
Also, any best method of cleaning up the distribution block? Soak it in ???
Thanks in advance.

I think it's looking good

Later when you get to stripes and emblems, let us know if you need help. You need to nail those

Thanks Pete, you and others here have helped me with a lot of advice and more will be needed as the KR goes back together, greatly appreciated.

Annnnd, back together she goes.
The bolts that attach the fenders to the engine bay, I have the AMK kit, are they correct as they come ie they don’t get painted?
Thanks

UPHOLSTERY-repair(if possible) or replace.
4159 will be back from the body shop in a few weeks, much has been done whilst waiting but I can’t make a decision on the upholstery.
I’ve attached a few pics, what would you do? Repair(if it can be repaired) or replace..?.....

Understand the urge to keep the original material and do a repair - have done it on some of mine. Issue is often that it still does not look fresh and new and can stand out in an otherwise fully restored and redone car.  Also old material and seams are more likely to ripe or tear again when compared to fresh not upholstery.

And option may be to store the original and have another set of seats and frames redone for the finished car.

Just some thoughts
Thanks Jeff, helpful thoughts thank you, I think I will go with new and should probably order them now before I change my mind again.
