Amazing work you have done there very impressive, What a beautiful sight to greet me on this Wednesday morning, Interested to see how long the coolant reservoir stays clear as my self and others have had new and its become discoloured in a few short years

Going to have to mark you down half a point as you are also missing the pipe off the coolant tank cap He he

Thanks

The coolant reservoir has discoloured already unfortunately since I changed it 3 years ago and it is an original one not the EB Spares one. I guess that is what is made of and it absorb the coolant colour.

I need to find one of those run off pipes

Amazing, that truly is a stunning effort.

I've been rejuvenating a JCW MINI and it can take one hell of a lot of dedication, so thanks, its inspiring , always astounds me how with determination you can turn around just about anything, super job.
Wasn't that one of the Alfa press cars originally ?
