hi guys. long time no speak. i have been working my ass off so i can get my car back on the road before all the good weather gose.
tomorrow is the mot day so wish me luck. i have been to the garage every day since she has been in there just to make sure everything is going well and so far so good. just need a few small bits.

when she is back i will be sorting the carb out and the fueling. then fingers crossed she should be good for at least a few miles.  :lol:

i will post pics tomorrow after i have cleaned her.

Ah!

I always dread going back to pick the car up after an MOT. Or do you torture yourself and wait at the garage?

ha ha no she has been in there for two weeks. would have been a long wait.  :lol:

had some welding done and stuff like that but turns out the servo is fighting against you when you put your foot on the brake. so the (my mate dave)  :lol:  recons the servo has gone as its not holding pressure. or somthing like that.

Nice one!  8)
