Going to be an expensive few weeks with the Spider ahead...

First up - Duncan at Alfanet sorting out a gearbox oil leak and my "loose" gearlever, but as he's taking out the 'box, so its new clutch time, plus probably renewing some mount rubbers as well I suspect.

Then its off to a local (South Wales) body shop for both rear wheel arches being sorted, the dreaded tinworm has taken hold and I am hoping to get it cut out before it gets too bad.

Finally, after that she's off to Ned at Autolusso one bleary Saturday next month for a nice shiny (yellow) set of callipers all around .

Christmas is cancelled! :)

When you have the gearbox off I would also change the crankshaft seal.
Definitely.

The rear camshaft seals are also a good thing to change if you are in there anyway.

Good news Mark. They are refurbished as well as painted I believe?

Its one of the reasons for the oil leak! both the crankshaft seal and a little bit from the cam cover.

Just to update on this, most jobs are done.

Decided upon bright yellow calipers - see attached pics.
