Re: New uk owner


Sid, Looks good. As the add says, every little helps - no rush. Just as long as you're enjoying the car and getting out in the road - in the dry weather of course! Smile

That's a nice looking car. I like that duo-tone paint - don't change it!

Re: New uk owner


Brought my self a hand held vaceum pump/gauge the other day to check out all the various vaceum diaphragms and hoses...surprising how many leaks I found..with the 30yr old hoses suffering the most...new pipes all round is the job for the next few days.then test it all again. Should certainly help with the fuel mixture when it's done.

After a few days and lots of elbow grease...wheels are shiny shiny...

And I've been able to post pics again, although in a slightly different way
