    Ho yeah, And yes the car WILL be finished in 2017 even if I have to do it myself. It's already way past any deadline but with the amount left to finish 2017 it is. Wasn't supposed to take nearly 6 years

      Coil now all bolted in and tidied up, servo replaced and.......still no brakes, replaced again with one of my serviced servos and........better but still no brakes. Will have to bleed the whole system next and check for leaks. Love the way it starts on the key with no messing at all. This is also vacating my barn next week to a new garage near me in Lincoln so we/I can complete it earlier

            Now found the parts needed for the brakes etc. Replacement electric sunroof sorted and will hopefully be going in the car sunday. Hoping to also finish putting the exhaust on.

                  First time since May Chris and I had a day spare to continue this car. As left in may last year. Found the lost sunroof sections.

                    Sunroof going in and all working, mgf Abingdon wheels now on the fronts but needing spacers for the rears at a later date. Front seat belts done, water pipe leak fixed, engine started up and revving freely but the auto choke slowly came off. Door cards starting to go on after checking the central locking and rear leccy windows are working

                        Not too much left to do now John, time together to teach Chris how to do this is the main thing we both haven't got a lot of, but it might be finished at somepoint this year, though I have been saying that for 3 years lol

                        • Managed a couple of hours on the car today, Car started on the button so that's great news. Rear door cards on and finished, all lights now sorted and working and just need side light bulbs replaced as they're blue, electric mirrors now on and all working, Before hanging the font door cards we found a bracket missing that couldn't be found anywhere near the car. Its the large drivers side bracket that attached the door cards to the door. Bummer. Wheels spaces ordered for the rear wheels, new speakers also ordered as the originals are knackered. Headlining next

                              I've done one or two, bought the material 4 years ago, so saved the last 2 metres for this car
