Hello All and Merry Christmas! An update with what we have been up to and it's time to fire up the engine for the first time after forty years idle. Thanks for the comments Dave.

Been burning off the Christmas indulgences with a bit more progress in the engine bay. All tuned up brake and clutch fluids bled it's all done under there. Not much more to do now just fitting the interior and waiting for the chrome to come back from the platers. Thanks for the comments Charles catch up soon.

Thanks for the comments John and thanks and for having a search for the Furflex, hard to believe it shrinks like 3 inches but I've managed to find some new.

Waiting for the chrome thought I'd pick up an old slow burning project, there was an old thread on here but the photographs seem to have a glitch so ill just add it here to finish it up. I threw an old metering unit on it I only had half the required new seals so there was a seal leaking.

The chrome has now arrived so we are back on it.
