Yup. gets tucked up for the winter, and comes out April/May for a few months - Gets MOTd (which he seems to get better results every year?!?!)

Still plagued with that sodden crappy leak coming from somwhere... ive lifted the carpets and removed some of the sound proofing and laid Talc in the foot well on the passengers side (front and back) to see if I can trace where its coming from...

Hows your fleet doing?

Sounds good breezing through MOTs like that!

My trials are documented - just need to get Daz through the MOT now and sell scoob I suppose.

These pics hide the "bad bits" very well... lol there is little bits of bodywork that could do with getting seen to. And there is the aforementioned leak which is really annoying. Also a shake at 80-90mph but levels out under full throttle again?!?

I've had him up to around 115mph and it's far from smooth but the vibrations really hit home between 80-90 another fiddle I guess to sort that! :)

If X has just got through the MOT you should be able to discount a suspension problem causing the shake, I'd have suspected wheel bearing or track rod end if it goes under full throttle. But try getting the wheels balanced.

I got the wheels done last year (as a hopeful fix to the shake) but it didn't fix it!

There is no noise so I had wrote off bearing... I hope it's not track rod end, as that was the most expensive on my list of possible problems....

Is there any tale tale signs I should look out for under the car?
