Now that's a nice car

My old Courier van reappeared after a few years missing in action, and wow what a fantastic job has been done on it, it's absolutely stunning.

Herald is coming on.

Well it's been a while since I wrote, eventually I had to take the top off the gearbox and go fishing with a magnet, then I couldn't get the gearbox top back on and it's been a few weeks, someone from the local club had a go but it wasn't right so I had a trip over to Mick Papworth in Coventry and he kindly showed me what to do and with an extra assistance on the phone when I got home it went back phew.

The carpets have arrived, not quite as good as Newtons, but they weren't £200, wheels and tyres fitted and American red lenses fitted, I had one in stock and I bought on when I was in the States earlier in the year, I was going to use them on the Courier but I thought I would follow the red and white theme of the car.

I am off to Scotland On Thursday to assist the RBRR team by marshalling at Skiatch services north of Inverness and Conon Bridge on Saturday.

I have included a couple of shots of the herald, still lots to do, I keep finding more and more lol

Why do I bother

Been doing ok got all the rear brakes and handbrake cables sorted, lubricated and adjusted, started put the engine ancillaries back and the gearbox brace. I thought might as well put the remote studs in too and promptly dropped a nut into the gearbox *%*%"* been delving with a magnet but nothing has surfaced looks like the SOB will have to come out again GRRR
