what the TR4? that sold for £560
guess the paperwork must be worth a few quid
wouldn't have minded the little fiat 500 though, sold for £440 but came with a few new panels.
they aren't that big a car so how hard could it have been
got a few jobs done on my sud today in readiness for (hopefully) the engine going back in next weekend.
had a good look over the hand-brake system as it was quite stiif last year, hope the mods will improve it.
took the radiator out and got all the mouldy flies from it
then a quick coat of paint.
did the nice simple mod to the bonnet stay that i spotted on a sud at MITCAR last year, think it was on waynes' car
a hole with an "r" clip in it stops the bonnet stay being knocked from its mounting and dropping the bonnet on your head
fitted the calipers to the new gearbox
new gaskets on the cam covers, engine now ready to go in once it's off the engine stand and has the flywheel refitted with the new clutch
just turn mild this week so fingers crossed that i can get saturday afternoon and sunday on it, hope it will be all up and running again by then
