Looks a good job, Andy. Must press on with the A310 so that you can give it the treatment.
Did you have your extract fan running in the video? You were slowly disappearing in the overspray.

many thanks to paul for bringing the car up to halifax and for being patient it has taken a while with the repairs and then the respray but worth it in the end.
always go to meet lee who came along to swap a faulty injector, once fitted the engine started almost straight away and ran very sweet after being stood nearly 8 weeks. i'm sure he will let us all know how he gets on with the final tuning on the rolling road at the end of the week.
here's a short goodby clip. poor sound recording though. clic the pic.

Top work by the old fella yet again and got back here safely with a bit of boooost now thrown in after fitting new squirter .
On Peter's rollers this Friday with MrF so hoping for some good results .It is running OK with just a high idle issue and a missing CO pot .....
One step forward two back with Paul though as a moggy has sneaked into the garage at home and pissed on his replacement driver's seat I had stored ...Sorry Paul :oops:

My thanks to Andy for a stirling job on the car, the pictures don't do it justice - it really does look fantastic in the flesh, the finish quality and the attention to detail is outstanding. If anyone else is umming/ahhing about doing this... just do it, worth every penny.

As for Lee... I didn't realise we were doing Christmas presents, the musk freshener you put in my car isn't really to my taste :wink: See you on Friday to see if she goes as well as she looks :twisted:
