    • As i suspected the Monitor was at fault, all working now, tidied up the wiring round that as i'd stripped it down. Couldn't understand why when I put the cowling on the slot in the wiper/indicator stacks wouldn't catch the steering wheel, till I got another and one was a little smaller, done that now. Cowling on, steering wheel near on till I drive it to centralize, front mats in as is the dash mat.

          • After a bit of difficultly bleeding the brakes, had to use gravity method in the end as the air wouldn't come out. Now the car finally moves and stops under its own steam. Paint needs a major clean atm but I not doing that till its finished, I've also attached the drivers door mirror today. On another note, only one fault and red light left to sort on the dash, low washer fluid, happy days

                • After 8 years of ownership this will be a nice place to be as I've never driven it on the road, speakers all connected, big clean up next, then number plates and hopefully an MOT soon as nearly completed. Happy happy happy

                      The montego really was a clean shape and all the better for it.

                              • Even did under the bonnet, though that was a faff. Bonnet wouldn't open so I had to undo the bonnet catch and reposition it, sorted now. Radio isn't plugged in as i'm waiting for it to be repaired. I'm in love now with this car and hopeful of a favourable MOT when my MOT man is back soon.
