Quick update - the car passed it's MOT!

Wayhey!........................................................................then died shortly after - traced it to crud in the pressure reg that wasn't alowing any fuel to return & was flooding the engine with fuel, still, at least the internals are nice & clean now :lol:

All blown through now but the brake master cylinder has now given up...

Hopefully on the road (with some more pics) soon...

Hi all,

Can't beleive how quick time flies!!! I've had this out the garage for over a year now so due to my complete lack of time to give it any attention, it's now with Volksfarmers.

Can't wait for the long drive home when it's ready :D

If any of you are down there take a look... Will make it to some shows this year...any 411 line ups planned?
