Some bits look Mk1 (rear panel where the lights go, hole in the bulkhead for heater hose, door hinges and internal bins obviously) but I wouldn't get hung up about having to replace the rotten stuff with newer shaped bits - I'm using the latest sills with my earlier shell..... because they are better !!!!

Welcome.

That looks a nice little car mate. Good Job.

Get some pics up of the KAD front 2 piece anti roll bar on when you've fitted it please.

I'm interested in how they fit. E.g because of your gearbox engine steadies. Does it fit within the front of the subframe..?
