There seems to be quite a bit of red on the car.

Very nice, but that colour must slow you down,

Fantastic work Gaz. The car is a credit to you. It has come a long way from the first time you came down to see us.

Looking forward to seeing it in the flesh soon.

Readers wives chief Hand not sure who`s spent more on refurbishment.

Sailed through mot today Thumb I have also noticed a slight oil leak coming from my oil filter given it a bit of a birl see if that stops it. Going back to winter one when I had the car that was the year the suspension got an overhaul so just to try and capture it all in one place heres abit of a summary

Bilstein HD and design Tek springs
Media blast front arms etc
Clean rear arms
new handbrake cables and shoes
new rear wheel bearings
powder coat anti roll bars back and front
fit new drop links rear
Fit four pot calipers on rear
replace all bushes with powerflex

A bit of a heads up to anyone contemplating new shocks and springs which was my original intention however as usual once you start digging into a 25 year old car as we all know the shopping list grows.
