Thanks Oli, I'm not going to say that there havevn't been times that I've cursed the car, there have been many. It's driving well now so time to get some miles on it.

Just been directed to this thread to answer a question about pistons and am absolutely amazed at the dedication and care that has gone into the project. Never seen anything so good.

Awesome is a word used too often but in this case it is absolutely appropriate.

Mike you cannot be are a real person. Are you related to Mr Data on Star Trek?

This nut-and-bolt retoration was a true labour of love. Mike's defintely a real person having spoken to him on the phone and he helped me get Brown fixed after the driveplate failure I suffered on the way to the 2011 TDCIR by sending me a replacement driveplate. A true gent!

Yes he is for real, as Dave just said, a gentleman and a true ambassador for the marque.

Hi Mart

The thread Mart; I lost all of the pictures from the thread when I lost "Image Shack".

I've been having some remedial work completed lately & I'm going to continue this thread. I have all of the pictures on a new hosting site now so as there are a lot of new people that have never seen it I'm going to re load all of the pictures. Might take a while but I think that the forum might like it.

Then I'm going to continue the thread with a bit of a running report.

No Sprints on the horizon?

Nah! I don't think I'll be restoring any more.
