Build Day Twelve - Ears onto De Dion tube

We had a day out planned in London and were leaving at midday, so I managed to have a quick sneak out into the garage for an hour before we headed off.

I put the drive shafts in place, and bolted the ears and hub assembly to the De Dion tube, threaded locked and torqued the rear bolts and torqued the other 4 bolts on both sides.
De Dion ears fitted to the tube.  Bolts torqued and marked with orange paint marker.

It was only an hour, but it seemed like a lot was achieved.  I've been supplied single pot rear brake calipers, and I think they're supposed to be twin pot according to some online reviews I've read, so a post on blatchat and an email to Derek should give me the answers.... I don't want to bolt that lot on only to find out they're the wrong calipers and I have to replace them, so tomorrow will be rear anti roll bar, and anything else I can get done.
