After two years of fannying around and replacing pretty much all I could think of she's just passed the MoT and is now fully street legal. Had a bit of a false start with a leaking manifold/down pipe joint and high emissions from the throttle cable fouling the vacuum body but very pleased that was all.
Now all I've got to do is get used to a manual box, alarming brakes and no power steering lol

Thanks guys

I've got a rolling road tune booked for Tuesday then it's an intensive shakedown before the run down to Munich for Oktoberfest on the 18th (I know it's September but that's Bavarians for you)

How's yours going OMR, any progress?

If you don't want angry fellow drivers trying to get out of Portsmouth on a Friday afternoon giving you the wanker sign remember to torque up your drive shaft bolts :oops:

I'll find out tomorrow but I hope I haven't done too much damage
