That's a great car. I do prefer the black on white instruments, those white-face Stewart Warners with clumsy bezels that are often used just look wrong to me.
Excellent to see the car featured.

Personally, I like the more period look of the redo. Nicely done. My only niggle is the Supertrapps, which just look out of place as far as the time period this car is trying to recreate. Ground clearance is really small on Healeys and it's hard to find a good muffler solution, although I've been very happy with my Spintechs.
