I've already got this car on my database. I didn't know it started life as a UK car. Have you thought about having some UK number plates made up? They would look good at shows. I ended up ditching my Sprint alloys because I was sick and tired of forever having to pump them up. If you still decide to go down that route, make sure you get the 3/8" nuts. These aren't easy or cheap to come by. My oil pump is leaking and I suspect the O rings (there are 2 of them) need replacing. I've bought them from Rimmer Bros but I haven't got round to fitting them. I suspect that your oil pump O rings will also need replacing.
Keep up the good work.
