Yours looks complex enough as it is Zel! Why such a lot of circuitry in a fridge for goodness sakes
It's a bit OTT surely?
The Invacar is coming along a treat
When is it going to be on the road?
I don't begrudge it having a reasonable amount of "stuff" in given that there are a few separate things going on between it being a combined fridge freezer with an automated defrost system, circulator fans inside, a water dispenser, ice maker and a couple of compartments you can set to different temperatures to the rest of the system. Even so, it seems overkill...
As for the Invacar, it's tricky to say.
A bag of assorted brake fittings arrived this morning, so I can set about tidying that lot up soon. Given they're relatively inexpensive I reckon that I'll probably just buy all new wheel cylinders (£10-15 each) in the interests of just saving myself time overall. Given I've some suspicions about the master cylinder too I'll probably just swap that out as well...That's £50-60 though so will probably be slightly further down the timeline.
The to do list between it and an MOT currently stand at:
 Sort out enough bodywork so there are no sharp edges.
 Reattach offside interior door handle so it can be opened from inside.
 Reattach front service cover.
 Replace fuel tank (do have a possible lead on that now, though I reckon I am going to have a shot at making something myself first).
 Tidy up brake lines, bleed etc.
 Replace/overhaul brake master cylinder.
 Replace missing horn and either replace the indicator stalk or fit a separate button for it.
 Set of tyres, probably going to go with Camacs as they're cheap and don't look too painfully modern. Much as a set of Dunlop SP Aquajets would be nice...at £100 a tyre it's just impossible to justify as it would be primarily a cosmetic choice.
 Replace battery with one the right size so I can fit the battery clamps.
 Replace clamps on the driver's seat with some that are slightly smaller (they currently don't tighten down quite far enough). While I'm there the original seat belt buckle and pre-tensioner assembly will be removed as they're surplus to requirements as the original seatbelt attaches to the floor and rear bulkhead frame.
That's pretty much it I think...Which given the state it was in when I got it ain't too dire actually. There are going to be odd jobs going on forever probably, but that's everything needed specifically to get it road legal I think.
