        What did you get? Something fairly nimble if it's for Curborough?

              That looks a lot better than it did.
              You might be able to come back from the road trip with it and sell it on for a profit!

              What did you use on the paintwork?

                It's in the back of my mind. If I can spruce this up enough there could be an easy sale at the end of it; all depends on how much abuse it gets when we're away and if it gets sabotaged by the other teams lol.

                Just used some Meguiars compound with a DA polisher.

                  Culprit of the oil leak:




                  Oil was coming through the sensor at the bottom then leaking out of the spade connector; you can see the brown discolouration.

                  New sensor, oil cooler o-ring and oil filter to go on:




                  Rest of the old oil drained out:




                  New sensor fitted and oil cooler o-ring in place:




                  Oil cooler back in place with all pipes reconnected:




                  New filter and fresh oil put in. The coolant looks pretty new so I recycled that. Leak seems to be cured

                  Then noticed a fuel leak I originally noticed it when I first viewed the car and the seller said it would be fixed if I won the car. When I went to pick it up it seemed like they'd sorted it but it appears to have come back. Checked it out today and it was just a loose jubilee clip on the fuel filter. The filter looks pretty ancient and the jubilee clip disintegrated a bit when I tightened it. The leak is fixed but I'm going to replace the filter and clip anyway.

                    Looking good - the snag with big old barges these days is the road tax. Gone are the days when you could buy them with tax & mot and run them into the ground.

                    It ought to do you perfect for your road trip.

                        If you have to abandon it outside the uk dont forget to tell DVLA that its been permanently exported. Otherwise tax will still be payable until you do, and non payment penalties issued.

                            Bit more work done on it today. Thought I'd get the wheels off to give the brakes a once over. Discs look good and there's loads of meat on the pads which is good! Just regreased the slider pins and copper greased the lobes on the pads and reassembled. One side done just need to the other over the weekend.

                            For the last few MOTs there's been a wheel bearing advisory on the right rear. Checked it out and there's a bit of play but nothing too bad. What was more of a concern was the top bolts holding the shock on that corner to the chassis were really loose! Swiftly tightened them back up. God knows why they weren't done up as the other side was fine.
