I'm here too :) Keeping a beady eye on what you're up to with your Spider.

Taking mine with young master Swag to the Sharnbrook Bank Holiday Cars & Coffee & Cruise tomorrow - fingers crossed that the rain holds off.

Thanks.

Sump back on and sealed - been out for a blast and no signs of any drips so far so hopefully cured and confirmed not the rear main seal which is a result. Oil was clean but added a magnetic sump plug for good measure.

Also added a new thermostat and cleaned up the coolant pipes. Just needs a little coolant top up now it is all bled through and the fans now kick in when required.

The high torque starter motor works a treat :-).

Once I have put a gold breather on the air pipe I will close the lid for a while as lots of jobs at the other end!

Started on the door wiring today - always a bit nervous when drilling the body but easily removed if required. The stainless connector works a treat and fits perfectly. Doesn't affect the door opening/closing as planned.

Just started to pull the wires through for a door loom I have already built. Hardware will take a bit of fitting but I can see it all working now.
