Well, this is all that's left to reverse assemble.

From L-R
1. No idea
2 & 3. Somewhere in the dash?
4. A number of these lilltle plastic things

Thanks for all help.

My suggestions:-
Nos. 2. & 3. are pedal box mounting brackets - 2. goes at the front, and 3. at the side
4. Looks like a carpet 'stud' - they are fixed to the floor with self-tappers and the original mats have fixings that clip onto them.
I'm guessing 1. is also a pedal box fixing, based on 2. & 3.
If you don't have a Service Parts List you should get one... :wink:

no 3 is the bracket that attaches to the pedal box. the other end attaches the handbrake.
It is basically a bracket that lowers the handbrake lever.

Thanks all - this is an invaluable resource.

As for Part #1 - as someone responded "don`t worry everyone has spare parts when they rebuild cars (don`t they ! )"

Number 1 looks like the nut plate that backs up the wiper motor strap bolts. Opposite side of engine compartment.

The other two look like the parts that are under the dash and as previously stated attach with pedal box.
