I just clicked on your photo of the steering bush and found some Slavic woman who wanted to chat to me.

She seemed very nice though - homely type

Off too look at another Dolomite tomorrow to join the fleet, a Carmine red Sprint. Will keep posted on how it goes but looks like a nice original car.

It looks as if you have caught the Dolomite bug which means you just have to have more than one.

You are right it is fast becoming an addiction. So much so I have started collecting mini versions!

Viewed the car below today - as far as I can work out someone called Jim from here used to own it. However it was a little disappointing. The asking price is fair for a sprint, however I would of only wanted to pay about 3.5K for this one as the paintwork was not good & pickled all over. Mechanically the car looked sound but would of needed a full respray before I could of took it out in public!!

The search continues.

So today was D-Day for the Dolly, MOT time!

Pleased to say she passed with flying colors and only one advisory on the NSF upper ball joint. (Will replace these all when i have the engine and subframe out over the winter)

Also to be done today is the wheel alignment that im having set up properly after fitting new steering components and suspension.

Nearly all set for the New forest run!

I did however get round to refurbishing and painting the lower side skirts. Look a lot better now!
