A whole set of questions.

1) Original dash say smiths on it (I think). Any visually similar dials that are most cost effective?
2) Headlights. These on first appears seem quite basic units, although they seem quite expensive. Are there any donar cars for these?
3) Does anyone have the part number for Wilwood brakes on granda front hubs? Same for rear hubs.
4) Has any one tried making their own seats and done a good job?
5) Eyeball vents – Early MKIV Zephyr Zodiac - any visually similar alternatives. These seem difficult to source in the UK
6) What steering rack should I use? And question with column/
7) Door handles and hardware any idea of where this originally come from?

I’ve gone with the ETB ones look period and better value.

Vauxhall Viva ones fit though they are slightly deeper, still hard to find though...

3) Does anyone have the part number for Wilwood brakes on granda front hubs? Same for rear hubs.

CBS do a version that is similar rnough and fits perfectly.

Speak to Mick @ Southern GT

Bespoke handles I believe and old mini latches work, again speak to mick @ Southern GT
 
I used an old tatty pair of high side Corbeau cloth seats, modified the steel frames, reducing the high sides, moved the floor mounting point up to get the seat lower and then a good trimmer to finish the job off.
