My rad started weeping again. So I took it out tonight but got a bit carried away.



Took the old actuator off and wanged a new spangly -31 one on.



These are some pics others have taken. I really want to get a black bonnet on there and a OEM bumper

Took the car out for a spirited drive on Saturday.

It needed a good clean when I got back.

So that is exactly what I did ..
