      Congrats on the buy and welcome back to the forum! Looks like you are already making good progress. I can't help much on fitment of seats or fuel tank as I'm not that far along but I do have some posts on fuel level sender in my build thread that you might be interested in.

        Ansa congrats on start of the build. You will find this kit interesting to test and teach you some engineering skills.

        From what I see from photos is that kit was modified from what Dick originally was sending - different front lower arms and their mounting places. Different front wall panels, it is RHD but still different. Different pedal attachment points and same bracket above pedals.

        For seat assembly you can see my build thread about seats attachment -
        first 2 photos are for drivers seat so it can travel front and back when adjusted with minor modified Accord seat rail (more description in the link above)
        third one is for passenger seat that stays in place

        For fuel tank you would need weld some holding brackets to attach to the frame and some adapters to accept fuel pump and fuel level sender as dis1 mentioned

        Also think about some mods I've made - steering column geometry for active pedal working if needed, ABS if needed.
        Also a big headache for me is cooling pipes, I had it remade 3 times and still unsure yet if it is final.

        But anyway it is fun assembling K1. Good luck on your build.

          Vivo thank you for your advice much appreciated i been watching your build for a few years just fitted hand brake leaver i modified to accept adjustable cable as mr2 one did not have adjuster on hand brake but under car also fitted gear leaver this needed cutting down to fit gap on k1 attack i used mr2 standard hand brake cable just cut them down put new ends on once correct length also fitted power steering electric motor and bottle upto now very easy long way to go ,

              Wow, great stuff! This is the first good pictures I have seen of a Mr2 build.

              The electric power steering is interesting. Is that a electric pump or other? Got any pictures of this?

              I'm also interested in how the parking brake works at the brake side. The Honda Accord design used a 2nd small caliper for the parking brake with huge brackets. A silly design but done for getting the goal done without a complex new solution. So how does the Mr2 emergency/parking brake work?

                it electric pump for pumping fluid to power steering rack
                cable just pull original caliper brackets works perfectly

                    Oh that's right, because the Mr2 is originally rear engine so the axles and brakes aren't from the front. Silly me...
