Had it out on the road this evening for a short run and other than an oil leak(loose rocker cover),brake fluid leak(small tighten up of a pipe) and a water leak(I knew about this one,heater tap O ring)and these are all sorted now everything went great.Just need to set the points and timing and clock up a few miles and away we go for the MTM.Might not get the interior finished but it would,nt stop me for doing the MTM but theres a whole load of other things that could,now where is that bottle of holy water. :lol:

Car looks fantastic hope weather stays fine shame to have to take it out in rain. But being Ireland if it does not go out in rain it will never go out.Looking forward to seeing it.

Back on MTM99 we had to drive through Knock past a zillion and one tacky plastic Jesus stalls. At least now it's bypassed.......

Just off ebay where I bought another piece to improve the car a little bit.It,s not a concours car but there were one or two little things that I felt were letting it down so when I get the final piece I will post a before and after picture and see what the punters think.
